Hello Fast Parts® Users!

I have always believed, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." Here at Fast Parts,, and Checkmate, we are working on the tools to help you with getting tougher. Let me list off some of the new tools Fast Parts offers to help you increase your profits. Partmate lets you speed up your inventory process so you can show those parts quicker on FastNnet and The new Car-Part Messaging Version 2 (iCPM) allows you not only to communicate with other recyclers, but also helps you see the inventory of other recyclers in your area so you know availability and price before you quote your own part. I have been hearing great stories about recyclers using iCPM and when they saw there were no other similar parts in their areas, they were able to increase their selling prices by as much as 100%.

Our newest advancement is the addition of thermal printers for use with your loose part tagging process. The thermal printers burn the images into the special tag material so your tags last much longer and remain clearer to read. The thermal printer is now a new product because of all the Fast Parts users who have called and requested it. Please continue to call me with all your suggestions so I can relay those requests to our developers. I would like to recognize the developers here at Fast Parts by name. You never hear from them as a Fast Parts user, because they are behind the scenes working on improvements. The Fast Parts developers are Judy Flowers, Rob Heady, Luis Canisalez and Dennis Stalzer. With the help of all the Car-Part developers, they quietly keep our systems updated with the newest programs you are asking for.

There is a lot of talk about who has the best inventory management system for recyclers, and the truth is each recycler uses the systems differently. What is best for one recycler would be a bad choice for another. I can tell you that with Fast Parts and Checkmate teamed up together, there is no need to look further for your inventory management solution. The family of products has all the bases covered with the newest programs to help you make the most profit from your recycling business. With all of our choices of the newest products, we have the best fit for your business. Give me a call if you have questions about what we have and how it can help you with your recycling operation.

If one of our support team does a "better than expected" job helping you with Fast Parts or Car-Part, please let me know so we can pass that along to their managers so they get credit for the effort. We all like a pat on the back when earned! Please keep those calls and emails coming in with your comments and suggestions.

Thank You!
