Mitchell 1 Adds Labor Time Estimating Program For Trucks

Mitchell 1 has launched TruckLabor, which the company said is the first comprehensive labor time estimating product for medium and heavy trucks.

"With TruckLabor’s Standard Repair Times, technicians, service writers and shop management have instant access to the information they need to determine how long a repair will likely take for any medium- or heavy-duty truck. With this knowledge, they can accurately determine when the vehicle can be back on the road and how to best manage shop workflow to optimize available capacity," Mitchell 1 said.

TruckLabor is a cloud-based system, so labor time data is automatically updated and the shop’s latest estimates are auto-saved for quick retrieval. Technicians always have access to the most current information available. The system’s navigation guides the user through the steps to quickly generate an estimate: identify the vehicle by selecting a year/make/model; choose the labor operations and add parts if applicable; then print the estimate.

According to Mitchell 1, key features of TruckLabor include:

• Standard Repair Times for consistent and accurate estimates
• Coverage of all makes and models of Class 4-8 trucks
• Estimator tool allows customization of labor rates for different customer types or service operations
• Automated labor data updates
• Saved estimates automatically organized in one location
• Content and technical support from Mitchell 1
