Brief History of Mitchell 1
Mitchell 1’s roots go back to 1918 with the first edition of the Reed Electrical Manual of Starting, Lighting, Ignition published by Service Engineering Company. Many years later, that automotive repair data was added to the vast database comprising the renowned Mitchell Manuals content library. Over time, the content evolved to become the foundation of ProDemand®, Mitchell 1’s industry-leading online auto repair information software.
Through the years, Mitchell 1’s products have transformed to keep pace with industry and technological advances. The company has introduced many “firsts” to the industry, including the first PC-based repair information product for auto repair shops and the first Windows-based shop management system. Building on that legacy, Mitchell 1 developed a suite of products and services designed to help independent vehicle repair shop owners work more efficiently from the moment the customer drives up, to the final invoice and beyond.
Today, the Mitchell 1 line of software products provides comprehensive repair information, estimating, management and shop marketing solutions designed to help simplify everyday tasks for automotive and commercial vehicle service professionals, while improving productivity and profitability:
