Hello Fast Parts® Users!
I want to thank all of you for calling in with your ideas and comments last month. I think we will use many of the innovative suggestions in the next Fast Parts build. Many of you called in with praise for the new iCPM feature that allows you to look up your parts quickly with all of your competitor's parts and prices viewable on the same page. Many Fast Parts users tell me that knowing what their competition is selling parts for allows them to adjust their prices on the fly so they are making more sales. One recycler told me it is not always lowering the price, and that on many occasions when he saw that he was the only one who had the part, he was able to increase his price and make the sale. Of all the advances that have been made over the years, I can see that this feature will allow you to increase your net profit more than any other by looking into the marketplace and seeing what you can sell your parts for. If you want more information on the revolutionary iCPM feature, please give me a call so I can explain how it works.
More and more Fast Parts users are changing over to the Partmate portable inventory tool to quickly inventory their vehicles so they can sell them on Car-Part.com. With features in Partmate like SmartVin and Smart Interchange that keep all those inventory questions to a bare minimum, how can you not love this product? I was so glad to see the computer manufactures come down on their prices so more of our users can afford the benefits of Partmate.
Aftermarket parts are becoming a larger part of the sales revenue in most recycling businesses. For several years now, Car-Part has helped our recyclers by making it easier to purchase the best-priced aftermarket parts with our Trading Partners package. You look up the part and if a new aftermarket part is available, you can see it (along with the price) from several quality aftermarket companies. As a Car-Part recycler, you see the aftermarket part but your customer does not, allowing you to sell the part and satisfy your customer requests. This is just another way Car-Part is working for you.
I have always enjoyed talking to skeptical auto recyclers about the Fast Parts system and years later hearing how much the decision to purchase the computer system meant to the success of their business. I am having the same enjoyment with all the new features that Car-Part has been introducing to the recycling industry. Don't sit on the sidelines. Try these Car-Part products... they work.
Please call me or instant message me when you have questions. Your comments and suggestions are what make our products better for you.
