Mitchell 1 Enhances RepairConnect Diagnostic Software for Medium and Heavy Truck Repair

Addition of ABS and transmission DTCs helps improve technician productivity

During a press conference today, held in conjunction with the inaugural North American Commercial Vehicle trade show, Mitchell 1 announced enhancements to its RepairConnect diagnostic truck repair software for all-makes and models of Class 4-8 trucks. In addition to engine diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), users may now access ABS and transmission DTC diagnostic and repair information in a single location through TruckSeries, Mitchell 1’s repair information software suite for commercial vehicles.

RepairConnect is fully integrated with all major scan tools and supports medium, heavy duty and school bus SAE protocols. The system provides the ability to access accurate diagnostic repair procedures in seconds whenever a Class 4-8 truck vehicle requires service. RepairConnect eases the complexity inherent in commercial vehicle systems by delivering clear and specific information, including component location photos, color wiring diagrams, and testing steps and procedures, in 30 seconds or less, to help technicians work more efficiently and accurately.
 
“Every feature in RepairConnect has been developed with the goal of increasing technician productivity, helping ensure that repairs are completed correctly the first time, to ultimately reduce vehicle downtime,” commented Scott DeGiorgio, general manager at Mitchell 1. “The addition of ABS and transmission codes in RepairConnect gives truck repair shops immediate access to comprehensive service information and eliminates the ‘replace and pray’ scenario that can result in a comeback for the same problem.”

Mitchell 1′s TruckSeries is the only comprehensive repair information software suite of its kind available for Class 4-8 trucks, delivering a one-stop, single log-in, all-makes data resource with scalable wiring diagrams, digital pictures, DTC-to-diagnostics, mechanical labor time estimating, and more, all delivered in seconds. TruckSeries is integrated with Manager™ SE Truck Edition, Mitchell 1’s industry-leading truck shop management software that delivers an end-to-end solution for every step of the repair process.
