Mitchell 1’s Shop Management customers can now register for free access to the PartsTech eCommerce platform – one of two new online multi-parts catalogs that were recently integrated with Manager SE and ShopKey SE applications.  This type of platform allows users to view multiple suppliers side-by-side to compare part prices and availability.
