The Mitchell 1 Manager Forum at www.managerforum.net is an online community of automotive professionals who help each other by sharing tips and best practices. The forum is continually updated with new content and moderated to maintain a friendly, professional and encouraging tone. Customer feedback and ideas are recorded on an enhancement request list and are considered for inclusion in future releases of the software.
“Over the years, we’ve watched the forum grow into a thriving community of automotive professionals,” said Tim McDonnell, national training manager and primary forum moderator for Mitchell 1. “Hitting 50,000 posts is a testament to the collaborative spirit of our industry. We are constantly inspired by the wisdom of our forum members and their willingness to share their knowledge with each other.”
McDonnell monitors the forum daily, contributes postings as a subject matter expert on the management software and acts as liaison with the Mitchell 1 product management team.
The Manager Forum includes categories for all of Mitchell 1’s products with sub-forums covering topics such as software upgrades, database settings, model coverage, inventory, purchase orders, parts catalogs, electronic ordering, reports and printing, marketing, technical issues and tips and ideas.
Registered users get the added benefit of two business-related discussion categories: SHOP-2-SHOP for running the business and WRENCH for vehicle repairs assistance, plus a forum “clubhouse” where users can socialize and share personal stories. These special categories are visible only to registered users who are logged in to the forum.
