Hello Fast Parts® Users!

I hope you are enjoying the changing of the seasons as much as I am. The change of weather always puts me in the mood to do some long-term planning. I know it is about a year away, but I want you to save some days for me in 2011. The Car-Part Customer Training Conference will be on August 4, 5, and 6 next year. I know most of you don't go to conventions because you are too busy. This year, put this training seminar at the top of your to-do list. You know the auto recycling industry is getting more complicated and this get-together will educate you so you can cope with all the changes. Also, it never hurts to know a few more shortcuts about your inventory management system and the Car-Part internet connection. I will be counting on seeing you there.

The federal government sent out a letter recently notifying all recyclers to comply with NMVTIS and record the VINs and statuses of your vehicles. You can find a link to this letter on our Products website. I know this is a bother to our industry, and that is why Car-Part and Fast Parts have jumped into this problem to help you with the process. After you have signed up with a data consolidator, give our tech support crew a call and see if we can help you get started with making your recycling business compliant with the new laws.

I want to thank all of you that called and ordered Partmate, our portable inventory tool. I know this tool will help you inventory your vehicles faster and more accurately. If you have time, call me and let me know how your Partmate experience is going. Speaking of the successful Partmate tool, it looks like we have another winner with the iCPM: Car-Part Messaging Version 2 with interchange. I have been hearing many good reports on iCPM. Recyclers say that by using this program they can see their parts and all their competitors' parts, letting them know what the best price should be to make the sale. This is a very powerful tool!

Give me a call so I can explain how this new lookup works.

I will be on the road a little the next few months and would love to see you.
