This new interface streamlines the user experience with an easy-to-use graphical design and intuitive workflow to help auto repair technicians work more efficiently.

Chosen by a panel of judges consisting of technicians and shop owners, the PTEN Innovation Awards recognize products that respond to the automotive repair industry’s market challenges with creativity and innovation. Tools are evaluated based on their ability to make vehicle repair and diagnosis easier and more efficient, and make shops more productive.

“We are thrilled to win a PTEN Innovation Award for the new 1Search Plus interface in ProDemand and would like to thank PTEN and the panel of judges who voted for it as one of the best new products in the industry,” said Nick DiVerde, senior marketing director, Mitchell 1. “This advanced search technology returns all of the repair information that technicians need in a single lookup, helping them improve both efficiency and accuracy.”

1Search Plus takes repair information to a whole new level of intelligence with advanced search technology that scans the vast database of Mitchell 1 content and returns only the specific information the technician needs. OEM and SureTrack® real-world information are more tightly integrated and returned together in a single location, with no switching between tabs or scrolling through long lists of articles.

The user selects a vehicle, enters a search term and 1Search Plus returns information in a unique graphical layout, organized in the same flow that auto technicians use when approaching a diagnosis and repair.

“At Mitchell 1, we are committed to continually providing software products that are on the forefront of technology and innovation to ensure that our customers have the tools needed to be more accurate and productive in the shop,” concluded DiVerde.
