Mitchell 1 has announced that with the next release of TruckSeries, the truck repair software suite will be enhanced with the addition of the 1Search™ Plus advanced search engine and user interface.
The 1Search Plus interface streamlines the vehicle technician’s job with an easy-to-use graphical design and consolidated information to help them work more efficiently. The advanced search technology scans the vast database of Mitchell 1 content and returns only the specific information the technician needs to make the necessary diagnosis and repair. All information relevant to the selected vehicle is assembled and delivered in a single location without any unnecessary and time-consuming navigation.
“1Search Plus is the most dynamic improvement Mitchell 1 has made to TruckSeries to date and is specifically designed to save technicians time,” said Kristy LaPage, business manager for the Mitchell 1 commercial vehicle group. “This advanced search engine captures all the information the technician needs when diagnosing and repairing a vehicle and delivers it to them in one place in a familiar format. We’re confident this latest enhancement to our truck repair software will get trucks back on the road sooner which is the goal of every commercial vehicle operator.”
Find and Use the Right TSB
Finding – and using – the right TSB starts with understanding what a TSB is and isn’t. That and more is covered in this new video.
With 1Search Plus, the technician simply selects the vehicle he or she is working on, enters a search term for the type of repair required, and 1Search Plus returns information in a unique graphical card format, bringing together all relevant information in a user-friendly layout. Content is categorized into the following cards:
- Specifications - Vehicle specifications
- Testing - Test procedures
- Component Connector - Connector view and pin-outs
- Component Location - Component location diagrams
- Component Operation - Component operation and description
- Wiring Diagrams - Wiring diagrams
- Diagrams - Images and exploded views
- Remove & Replace - R&R procedures
- After Repair Info - Post repair testing and validation
- Labor - Labor time
Key features and benefits of 1Search Plus include:
- The graphical card format is intuitive and easy-to-navigate.
- Results are more targeted, so technicians can spend less time scrolling as data is now categorized into more specific cards.
- Cards populate only if there is relevant information, so technicians only see information for the results they need.
