Mitchell International Inc., a provider of information, workflow and performance management solutions to the P&C claims and collision repair industries, has added a Global Positioning System (GPS) capability to its WorkCenter Dispatch product. The addition of the GPS function is intended to help enable insurers to increase the efficiency and productivity of their field operations, and it interfaces with select Nüvi models available from Garmin International.

Mitchell says integration eliminates the need for field appraisers to manually enter addresses into their GPS devices for each assignment, reducing errors and improving timeliness. Once field appraisers install the Garmin communicator plug-in, they can send their assignments from their mobile itinerary board to their GPS devices with the click of a button, and assignments on the GPS device are kept in a separate folder within the Favorite menu for easy retrieval, according to the company.
