Mitchell 1 detailed recent advancements to the company’s TruckSeries suite of web-based software designed to increase the efficiency of commercial vehicle service professionals at an Oct 29 press briefing at the North American Commercial Vehicle Show.
Scott DeGiorgio, general manager, said that the TruckSeries suite provides access to complete labor estimating, diagnostic trouble code procedures and repair information for all makes of medium- and heavy-duty trucks in a single application.
DeGiorgio gave an overview of how Mitchell 1’s advanced 1Search Plus interface, as well as the company’s newly enhanced wiring diagrams, use intelligent navigation to speed up the work of the technician by taking him or her directly to the information required with fewer clicks.
“The less time a truck is down for repair, the more time it is available to produce revenue,” he said, explaining that the 1Search Plus interface streamlines search and navigation for diagnostic and repair information specific to the vehicle being serviced. A technician simply selects the vehicle he or she is working on, enters a search term for the type of repair required, and 1Search Plus brings together all relevant information in a user-friendly layout.
Similarly, Mitchell 1’s enhanced wiring diagrams take the user directly to the specific component diagram with the related wires automatically highlighted. Mitchell 1’s wiring diagrams have been a core feature of the company’s commercial vehicle repair software since it was first introduced to the industry in 2006. Now, DeGiorgio said, the new navigation feature speeds up the search process and quickly opens the right diagram for the component being searched, without the need to scroll through multiple pages.
Mitchell 1′s TruckSeries is available for Class 4-8 trucks. According to the company, it delivers “a one-stop, single log-in, all-makes data resource with scalable wiring diagrams, digital pictures, DTC-to-diagnostics, and more, all delivered in seconds.”
TruckSeries is integrated with Manager SE Truck Edition, Mitchell 1’s truck stop management software that delivers an end-to-end solution for every step of the repair process.
