Hello Fast Parts® Users!

With so many new programs for and Fast Parts, it's hard to know where to begin. At the front of the pack is Partmate, the tool that makes the inventory process easier and more efficient. Are you struggling with putting your vehicles in inventory? This portable inventory program can help. With integrated SmartVin, both the speed and accuracy of the inventory process increases because Partmate collects the necessary information from a vehicle's VIN. The automatic download to Fast Parts means your parts show up on sooner and part sales increase.

Running at a close second is CrashLink. Because it is more difficult to locate and purchase salvage vehicles, Car-Part designed a tool to help you sell more parts on vehicles you already own. CrashLink provides the answer to selling parts when you don't have accurate interchange information ready at hand (or the value of those parts). When you search a non-interchange part on CrashLink, Shift + F5 gives you a picture diagram, interchange information, and current manufacturer pricing. Many recyclers increase sales with this interchange feature, and knowing the dealer price often increases the profit on those sales.
