Hello Fast Parts® Users!
For only $25 per month you can have the most powerful remote inventory tool made for our industry. Partmate is made for fast and complete inventory of parts when your vehicle hits your site. To start with, SmartVin and Smart Interchange will answer questions about the parts so you don't have to. Just supply the VIN and Partmate will already know many details about the vehicle you are inventorying so you don't have to pick and choose options. Most Partmate users have told me that this feature alone saves hundreds of dollars in incorrectly marked parts. I think the speed of getting those parts into your inventory is the biggest advantage. With Car-Part.com showing your parts all over the country, you need to show those new parts as fast as you can for the buyers to know you have them.
We have special Partmate trainers that will walk you through how to use this powerful tool. When you call me, I will explain all the details about Partmate and which computers work best with the software. Many recyclers are using new and inexpensive netbooks for their portable computer. Others find the Panasonic Toughbook a good choice because of its rugged durability in the field. I have seen many recyclers start out with a laptop they have on hand to keep the expense down. Whatever method you choose I believe the speed and accuracy will more than pay for the one-time $250 setup charge and the monthly fee of $25. Please give me a call if you have questions about Partmate, our inventory method of the future that is here today.
I hope you are going to attend Car-Part Training at the end of the month. This is when Car-Part rolls out the red carpet to show off the many new projects we are working on. The training that recyclers get is so good that many are coming back for a second year to gain that competitive edge everyone is looking for today. There are only a few days left to sign up so please give Car-Part a call if you can make it. You can also sign up on our Products website. It kicks off on July 29 with an evening reception, and the 30th and 31st will have all-day training.
As always, I want to invite each and every one of you to call me with questions or comments you may have about Car-Part or Fast Parts. We are in the process of putting together a list of new features to work on and your input is needed to see which features are worked on first. Keep up the great work you do for the recycling industry and I will look forward to hearing from you soon.
