Mitchell International Releases New Versions of Business Management Solutions Suite

ABS 8.2 and ABS Enterprise 8.2 add functionality that helps collision repair facilities become more competitive, lean and profitable

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Mitchell International has announced the availability of ABS 8.2 and ABS Enterprise 8.2, both of which feature new added functionality.

ABS 8.2 features new capabilities, which the company says enable individual collision repair facilities to operate more efficiently and reliably while solidifying ABS Enterprise 8.2 as the preeminent management system for high-performing or multi-location facilities.  Both ABS 8.2 and ABS Enterprise 8.2 include enhanced reporting features, providing users with easy, instant access to performance details surrounding their business operations. ABS reports can now apply filters and sort and export data to other applications.

Additional ABS capabilities include:

— Improved workflow to boost operational efficiency: ABS 8.2 helps collision repair facilities support their unique business requirements with new events, logs and business rules.

— Enhanced reporting includes a new linear option that allows customer data to be exported into other applications—such as Microsoft Excel—helping collision repair facilities to implement marketing campaigns.

Mitchell International added that multi-location collision repair facilities with more complex operations, as well as those customers interested in a solution to enhance their consolidated reporting and oversight needs will benefit from ABS Enterprise’s new enhancements including:

— Improved White Board usability helps users manage operations more actively: Collision repair facilities can now make more informed business decisions by easily changing Production Status and adding more information such as Towing Status and Out Date.

— Enhanced Shop Clock enhancements: Added functionality makes it easier for managers to reflect more accurate times and improve technician performance.
