The donation of the cloud-based estimating solution assists students by teaching them the estimating writing process to prepare them for work upon graduation.
“We’re always looking for opportunities to give back, both to our professional and local communities,” said Debbie Day, executive vice president and general manager, auto physical damage solutions at Mitchell International. “Our cloud-based estimating solution has brought our industry into the future, in that it frees estimators from their desks by allowing them to work anywhere, anytime, on any device.”
The Mitchell Cloud Estimating solution modernizes the way repair facilities write estimates by enabling them to write estimates anywhere, and shortening research time by providing repair procedures at the estimate line level. Additionally, it can be integrated with other Mitchell products including the Mitchell Diagnostics system and the Mitchell Connect system. The solution’s cloud-based nature makes its donation easy and a practical way to facilitate training on estimation writing.
“Mitchell’s generous donation enables us to provide a teaching experience that leverages the cloud, equipping collision students for the future,” said Brandon Eckenrode, director of development at Collision Repair Education Foundation. “We can provide first-rate training to schools across the country, thanks to Mitchell, to prepare shop workers and owners of tomorrow.”
