SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 5, 2012) - Mitchell today announced a new technology integration with KPA as a partner in the RepairCenter™ ToolStore, making it possible for auto body repair shops to engage with KPA's compliance solutions directly from the RepairCenter Workspace.
KPA's proprietary myKPAonline system for automotive repair and collision centers is now seamlessly integrated into RepairCenter through the ToolStore to provide auto body shops compliance assistance with state, local and federal laws.
"This integration will allow Mitchell customers to easily access OSHA, EPA and DOT compliance assistance. Using our add-on tool to the RepairCenter interface is a great way to ensure all facility employees can complete online training, view Material Safety Data Sheets, and submit safety suggestions," explains Eric Schmitz, Vice President of Product & Business Development at KPA. "Our goal at KPA is to make compliance easy, and the new integration with Mitchell just makes sense."
The assistance offered by KPA can cover all aspects of OSHA, EPA and DOT compliance and can also provide loss control benefits, reducing overhead shop expenses. KPA's nationwide compliance experts can supplement the myKPAonline software solution to provide personalized onsite assistance.
"By opening the ToolStore to KPA's solutions we're giving shops the opportunity to be proactive with their environmental and safety practices. Mitchell will continue to source best in class software solutions like myKPAonline and make these available through the RepairCenter ToolStore, " said Peter Lovasz, Senior Director of Mitchell Repair Solutions.
