Mitchell 1 will hold this year’s second Shop Management System Training Workshop July 18-20 in Minneapolis, Minn., at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis.
The training workshop is for those who have previously established competence using their shop management software and now want to learn more advanced capabilities, better methods and shortcuts, the company says.
The two-day training session guides users through all levels of functionality in the Mitchell 1 Manager and ManagerPlus system. Instructors will explore program setup values, inventory, reporting, best practices and advanced transactions as well as integration with aftermarket cataloging. The workshop explores both of Mitchell 1’s shop management solutions – Manager 5.9 and Manager SE (version 6.4) – since setup and operation is similar for these products. Users of both platforms will benefit from this training experience. Attendees will also learn about the Mitchell 1 SocialCRM customer retention and new customer acquisition service during a relaxed evening reception.
The workshop will be led by John Dwulet, senior product manager for Mitchell 1’s management software solutions, and Tim McDonnell, national training manager, who together have over 35 years of combined Manager and ManagerPlus training experience. Mitchell 1 support personnel will also be on hand. Discussions will be held on how to use the management system to energize your business, increase profits and boost productivity.
A cocktail reception will be held on Thursday, July 18, from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. Workshop sessions run from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., on Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20. The registration fee is $200 per attendee, plus applicable tax, and covers seminars, breakfast, lunch and refreshments each day. Participants are responsible for transportation to Minneapolis and hotel accommodations. Attendees may reserve rooms at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis and receive Mitchell 1’s special hotel rate by mentioning Mitchell 1/ShopKey Manager Training when making the reservation by calling (612) 370-1234.
