Mitchell integrates comparable build sheet data into WorkCenter Total Loss

Comparable vehicle build sheet data improves total loss accuracy and claim settlement times

San Diego—Mitchell International released the latest version of the WorkCenter Total Loss, which integrates vehicle build sheet data when identifying the exact trim and options on available comparable vehicles, resulting in more accurate vehicle values.

“At Mitchell, we’re constantly challenging ourselves to think creatively about ways to deliver greater value to our customers, and the latest version of WorkCenter Total Loss does just that,” said Paul Rosenstein, vice president of Product Management at Mitchell. “It is a significant advancement to our vehicle valuation solution and we are ecstatic about delivering it to our valued customers.”

WorkCenter Total Loss leverages select vehicle manufacturer’s build sheet data to identify the options and packages specified to be on vehicles when they rolled off of the production line. The enhancement results in more accurate vehicle values by finding comparable vehicles that best match the loss vehicle. Build sheet data also limits the adjustments to the comparable vehicle’s stated price to match the configuration of the loss vehicle.

With the implementation of comparable build sheet data, vehicle valuations can be more accurate, efficient and productive. Other advantages include:

• Automated comparable vehicle selections that are a much closer match to the loss vehicle

• Reduction of the time required to be at the vehicle during the inspection

• Users no longer need to make interpretations regarding a loss vehicle's specific configuration / trim level and the factory installed optional features and packages

• Reduction in inaccuracy caused by typos or lack of detail
