Mitchell Releases Next Generation Collision Estimating and Reference Guides

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Mitchell International, a provider of information, workflow and performance management solutions for the automotive insurance claims and collision repair industries, has announced the release of its next generation Collision Estimating and Reference guides. The guides now contain valuable paint and materials and air bag information for new model vehicles.

Among the new resources included in the guides is the Air Bag Quick Reference information, which can help technicians and estimators quickly access critical air bag procedures like disabling, activating and system operation check instructions. Similarly, the Quick Reference Paint and Materials information refines shop repair processes by improving the workflow for new vehicle refinish estimates, even if the shop is not using an electronic estimating system. Along with increased workflow efficiency, access to this information in the guide will help to minimize costly and time-wasting supplements, according to the company.

“Our goal at Mitchell is to constantly improve the products and services that we provide to the collision repair industry,” said Peter Lovasz, product manager at Mitchell International. “We’re extremely proud of the fact that that Mitchell continues to be the solution provider of choice for print Collision Estimating Guides — both as a primary estimating tool and as a companion to complement our electronic estimating software.”
