Mitchell 1 Receives 2020 PTEN Innovation Award

Mitchell 1 announces it has received a Professional Tool & Equipment News (PTEN) 2020 Innovation Award for its ProDemand® Interactive Wiring Diagrams in the repair information category.

“We’re truly honored to win a PTEN Innovation Award again this year and would like to thank the panel of judges for choosing our ProDemand Interactive Wiring Diagrams as one of the best new products in the industry,” said Nick DiVerde, senior marketing director, 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.”

In response to the complex electrical systems in today’s advanced vehicles, Mitchell 1 introduced interactive wiring diagrams in its ProDemand repair information software with patent-pending features, as well as exclusive navigation and viewing enhancements that will redefine electrical diagnostics for auto technicians.

While viewing a wiring diagram, users simply click on a component name within the diagram to instantly access information such as specifications, component location, connector views and real-world repair insights. The diagrams feature intelligent navigation that takes users directly to related component information without a secondary lookup — with traces automatically highlighted. 

“There is no need to exit the wiring diagram to find related information needed to diagnose the issue – everything is a click away, said Gary Hixson, market manager for ProDemand, Mitchell 1. “ProDemand’s interactive diagrams make it faster and easier than ever to find the exact wiring diagram needed for an efficient and accurate diagnosis.”

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.

ProDemand® auto repair information provides complete OEM repair, estimating and maintenance information and exclusive real-world industry insights in a single lookup, to help automotive technicians repair vehicles more efficiently. Key features include expert-based Real Fixes, ADAS quick reference information, the latest TSBs, common replaced parts graphs, and integrated estimating with the Mitchell 1 Manager™ SE shop management system.
