Hello Fast Parts® Users!

It is that time of year when used parts sales start to take off and you need to be ready. Here are two products that can help you get ready to put your parts in front of the customers that are looking for them.

Partmate™ is the first tool you will need. This portable inventory tool will help you whiz through those vehicles that you have not been able to find the time to inventory. Partmate lets you go out to the vehicle and in one process inventory, price, and download parts to your Fast Parts® system. The Partmate program uses the VIN to eliminate 80% of the interchange choices, speeding up the inventory process substantially. Also, by making less choices you will make fewer mistakes in choosing the correct interchange application. Just wait until you see the point-and-click method that will allow you to show the damage locations, and the way Partmate helps you pinpoint the best price for your parts by using your sales history and the current market price. You can't afford to be without this powerful sales tool because "you can't sell it if you don't know you have it."

The second product that will let you sell more parts is the Car-Part Gold package. If you have Basic, you already know the value of showing your parts on the Internet and you are making hundreds of sales that you would not have made without this great communication product. If you have the powerful Trading Partners Car-Part product then you have the speed of one-key access allowing you to quote the parts of other auto recyclers and make the sale immediately while you have the potential customer on the phone. With Trading Partners, you can make trading groups and buy and sell to your preferred business partners and price shop the major aftermarket vendors that the general public does not have access to.

Now that you are selling more of your parts and using your recycler partners parts to sell with, Car-Part Gold will make it easier and quicker to make your parts sell. Gold makes it quicker by incorporating Car-Part Messaging™. Make your purchases and sell parts without even picking up the phone. The message link automatically picks up the part you searched for and sends it to the recycler that has it. With very little keyboard work the order is made in seconds. Car-Part Gold also allows you to expand your inventory on your website by including giant warehouses of aftermarket parts, and you can show several of your recycling partners' inventory as though they were in your inventory. There are many more features in the Gold package including a recycling chat room and a "parts needed" bulletin board.

While everyone else sits around and talks about how business is bad you can get to work and be one of the success stories with the help of Fast Parts and the products. We have the answers on how to sell more parts and I would love to discuss them with you. So call me today.

Thank You!
