Mitchell International (San Diego), a provider of information, workflow and performance management solutions to the P&C claims and collision repair industries, has expanded its partnership with APU Solutions (Overland Park, Kan.) to augment its estimating, shop management and workflow solutions by providing APU Solutions PartsNetwork to streamline recycled and aftermarket parts selection and sourcing, according to a Mitchell press release.
Mitchell claims that both carriers and repair facilities can benefit from the capabilities of APU Solutions PartsNetwork, an online software solution described by the vendor as providing real-time inventory searches and procurement for alternative parts. Using the solution in conjunction with Mitchell's estimating solution gives carriers enhanced reporting capabilities on alternative parts selection and trends, Mitchell claims.
"We are excited about expanding our existing partnership with Mitchell to further streamline workflows and provide even greater efficiency gains for all collision repair partners involved the auto claims process," comments Charles Lukens, CEO, APU Solutions. "As always, we remain committed to serving the industry by helping to reduce the friction caused by phantom parts, which this enhanced access can help eliminate by ensuring that parts specified on estimates are in fact available."
