Current users of Manager/ManagerPlus will receive a free upgrade to the new version. Once installed, users will have access to the NAPA catalog from any order. The new NAPA catalog is easy-to-use, fast and updates automatically via the Internet, which eliminates the need for monthly CD-Rom updates.

“With Manager/ManagerPlus, Version 5.9, installers can easily connect with one of the largest aftermarket parts suppliers in the industry,” said John Dwulet, senior product manager, Shop Management Solutions – Mitchell 1. “This is just another example of our customer commitment to offer service dealers a choice in their procurement of parts. Mitchell 1 supports more catalogs than any other competing software.”

The NAPA catalog is configurable for the U.S. or Canada; allowing service dealers to link to their closest NAPA Auto Parts Store. The catalog also includes detailed comments on parts, manufacturer safety data sheets (MSDS), product images, a keyword search, a part number look-up, job lists and an interchange.

“My automotive shop tested Manager/ManagerPlus, Version 5.9, and I can honestly say it has greatly enhanced our ability to streamline our functions during the day,” said Randy Waitman, owner of RAE An Automotive Service Co., Ramona, CA. “It has eliminated the time that we previously spent on the phone ordering parts and typing paperwork. We now have more time to devote to customer service. The savings to my shop have been immense.”
