Upgrade Process

Customer responsibilities in upgrade process

  • A customer must make the request to upgrade to Manager SE from Manager v5. Mitchell 1 is not automatically shipping upgrade discs to customers at this time.
  • Before submitting a request to upgrade using the form on this website, a customer should run the system check available on this website. This system check needs to be run on each computer which will run Manager SE. The customer should not attempt to install Manager SE on computers that don’t meet minimum system requirements as the program will not run properly in that case.
  • The customer must recognize that this is a significant software upgrade/installation that may take some time to perform. It is much more involved than the Winners Circle updates for Manager v5 that the customer may be familiar with installing.
  • There are a number of settings that cannot be converted during the installation process due to design differences between the two systems. The customer will have to configure these settings after conversion. These are: setup of user profiles/security, selection of printers for each workstation, and selection of end-of-day reports to be printed.
  • Many shop configuration settings are transferred, however, after installation the customer needs to review the Setup areas of Manager SE, including Shop Data, Standard Tables, and Standard Descriptions to ensure the product is configured as expected.
  • The upgrade process is straightforward when the provided instructions are followed, and customers should be able to perform this process unassisted. However, if technical issues do arise they are likely to require the expertise of Mitchell 1’s specialized technical support staff rather than the local field sales representative. The customer must be willing to work with Mitchell 1’s technical support staff who can provide assistance over the phone and by remotely accessing the customer’s computer through the internet.
  • Manager SE includes connectivity with many new catalogs. These catalogs require setup that involves the cooperative effort of the customer and the catalog provider/parts partner. Mitchell 1 tech support can assist the customer in the setup of the catalogs once the necessary credentials have been obtained from the catalog provider/parts partner.
