POWAY, Calif. — Mitchell Repair Information Co. L.L.C. will hold its first Shop Management Workshop of 2018 for Mitchel 1 auto shop management software users April 26-28 in San Diego.
The two-day training session is designed for customers who want to learn more advanced capabilities, shortcuts and new features to run their businesses more efficiently, Mitchel 1 said.
The session focuses on best practices and guides users through all levels of functionality of Mitchell 1 Manager SE and ShopKey Shop Management SE, the Poway-based company said.
Emphasis is on features in the 7.0 version of the software, but previous versions also are covered. Topics include program setup, inventory, reporting, scheduling, advanced transactions and aftermarket cataloging. Attendees also will learn about the integrated Mitchell 1 SocialCRM auto shop marketing service during a casual evening reception.
The workshop will be led by John Dwulet, senior product manager for Mitchell 1's management software solutions, and Tim McDonnell, senior market manager for Manager SE, who together have over 40 years of combined shop management system training experience.
"This advanced training turns existing shop management system customers into power users who get the most out of their software and business," Mr. Dwulet said. "The sessions will uncover strategies that attendees can use to compete successfully against dealerships, maximize their maintenance and repair opportunities, and enhance their relationships with customers."
The workshop will be held at the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley. Registration is $200 per attendee, plus applicable tax, and covers seminars, breakfast, lunch and refreshments each day.
Attendees can earn 30 AMI credits toward the Accredited Automotive Manager designation by completing the workshop.
