ProDemand Estimate Guide
The ProDemand Estimate Guide from Mitchell 1 is designed to save
time for auto repair shops by simplifying the task of writing an estimate.
Labor times, OEM parts pricing, and parts diagrams are consolidated
on a single page, improving on the previous version where information
was delivered in separate tabs. The new streamlined navigation speeds
up the process of estimating by reducing the clicks needed to access
items and provides a trail to quickly return to previous categories. Other
enhancements include automated calculations and the ability to add or
subtract parts in the quote with a single click.
