Mitchell International Inc., a provider of information, workflow and performance management solutions to the P&C claims and collision repair industries, has launched RepairCenter for the Apple iPad to enable wireless shop management. Mitchell says The RepairCenter shop Workspace is now fully compatible with both the iPad and iPhone, and is designed to enhance workflow by allowing collision repairers to stay connected to the shop and keep jobs moving, even when they are not on site. 

The RepairCenter Mobile Application was created to provide access to a variety of RepairCenter applications, including customer and job tracking, task management and vehicle repair status. Mobility gives collision repair owners and managers the ability to access the vital information they need to manage their business on the go, and even write estimates quickly and accurately in the field from either the iPad or the iPhone, according to Mitchell.

"Providing shops the ability to operate their management system and estimating system from their iPad is a great example of Mitchell's ongoing commitment to bringing new solutions to the market to fit our customers' work style and help them take better control of their operations to improve the way they do business," says Jason Bertellotti, VP of repair solutions for Mitchell.   

From shop owners who travel between locations and want to maintain visibility, to technology-savvy employees with higher expectations for technology, the iPad integration offers RepairCenter users a new level of flexibility in shop workflow and management, says Mitchell. The company also says that enabling RepairCenter and RepairCenter Estimating on the iPad builds on the iPhone application introduced last year.

Mitchell says RepairCenter Estimating will be commercially availability in the first quarter of 2011.
