Hello Fast Parts® Users!
The program developers here at Fast Parts have been very busy making improvements to your Fast Parts system. As you know, we have the Partmate remote inventory program that cuts down on your inventory time. Our programmers continue to update Partmate to make it even easier to use. The computer manufacturers have started making low-cost portable computers ("netbooks") that work well with Partmate. There have been several enhancements to Partmate and if you have questions about this great product please give me a call so I can discuss the new features with you.
So you can see we have sped up your inventory process, so the next project we have taken on is the process of finding a part in inventory in Fast Parts. We have had several Fast Parts users tell us they wanted more information when they looked up their parts. What if... When you look up a part you not only see your part but you also see your trading partners on the same screen. This will give you two powerful pieces of information. First, if you have the part you will be able to see what your peers are pricing the parts for and where you need to be, price-wise, to make the sale. Second, if you don't have the part you will be able to quote your customer on the part from your trading partners and instantly contact them to make the purchase.
"What if" is now! With Car-Part Messaging Version 2 (iCPM), you can look up a part the same way you do on the Car-Part.com website, with drop down boxes and click-to-choose features. That's right: the complete Windows look and feel you have been asking for. If you like, you can also just type the year, model, part to quickly find your part. You will see which of your favorite recyclers have the part in stock, and you can also configure your program to show you whether you have the part in stock on the same screen. This new Car-Part product will revolutionize the way our industry will find and sell parts by making the information you ask for instantly available.
Fast Parts is celebrating our 25th anniversary by selling record breaking numbers of systems to our recycling industry. As always, our competition tries to use misinformation to sell their outdated systems, so if you hear one of their wild claims please give me a call so I can set the story straight. Fast Parts and Car-Part will continue to produce new and creative ways for you to sell more parts quickly and with less effort.
Please feel free to call me with your questions and comments.
