SAN DIEGO — Mitchell Repair Information Co. L.L.C. has launched its Mitchel 1 "Shift Into High Gear" sweepstakes, which will award one winner an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the Mitchell 1 shop management training workshop in Orlando, Fla.

"The 'Shift Into High Gear' sweepstakes continues to be a great way for us to say 'thank you' to our Facebook fans," said Nick DiVerde, senior marketing director for Mitchell 1.
"One lucky winner will get an all-expense-paid trip to attend our shop management training workshop in Orlando (April 30 - May 2). Attendees will learn how to get the most out of their shop management system, and also have an opportunity to network and share ideas with one another on how to use the software to energize their business, increase profits and boost productivity."
The sweepstakes winner will receive round-trip airfare for two to Orlando and three nights in a double occupancy room at the Rosen Centre Hotel, workshop tuition for two people, plus breakfast, lunch and refreshments each day. Workshop attendees will be welcomed at an evening cocktail reception on April 30 and training will run all day on May 1 and May 2.
The training sessions will focus on best practices and will cover topics such as optimal settings, workflow options, customization, reporting, scheduling, program security, inventory, purchase orders and aftermarket catalogs. Instructors will also guide attendees through the newest program features.
Optional modules on Manager SE also will be discussed, including the ProSpect digital vehicle check-in/inspection app for mobile devices and MessageCenter for text messaging directly from the system. Attendees will learn about the integrated Mitchell 1 SocialCRM auto shop marketing service during an evening reception.
A practice lab equipped with computers and staffed by product specialists will be available throughout the event so attendees can practice and apply the skills they are learning in the training sessions, the company said.
