Hello Fast Parts® Users!

The Car-Part Industry Conference has just ended. I enjoyed seeing some of my old friends and listening to everyone's ideas about what is working in the auto recycling industry. The excitement from Car-Part Pro™ was on the minds of many recyclers. We had a very robust discussion about adding new revenue to the used parts industry. Car-Part Pro will help you increase your sales to professional repairers. It is very important to make use of Car-Part's products to increase your share of the $2.3 billion/month marketplace. eCommerce will be available by the end of the year on Car-Part Pro integrated with Mitchell.

If you were unable to attend the conference, find the time to call me and I will help fill you in on what you missed. Be sure to be one of the recyclers that gets the jump on the competition by attending next year's industry conference. Put it on your calendar now so you don't forget to attend!

I can't believe some of you are still using the old method of inventorying parts in Fast Parts. For just a small setup fee, and $35/month, you can have Partmate™, the most powerful inventory tool in the industry. If you have considered this inventory tool with SmartVin™ before, now is the time to give me a call and put Partmate to work for you.

Fast Parts Support has requested that I remind you to regularly back up your computer. This small action can save big headaches. I received good feedback at the Car-Part Industry Conference regarding our new Fast Parts model file, which will be out soon. This means you will no longer have to delete models to add new ones.

Our Checkmate® inventory management system has been adding many new functions lately. One of the most popular is Real Time Barcoding™. Real Time Barcoding makes it easy to keep track of loose parts while you are stocking the warehouse. Another sought after feature is the ability to store photos of the parts in your inventory. Checkmate Imaging allows you to easily upload and view images on Checkmate. Soon the Car-Part Pro search will show these part images. Checkmate Imaging is a part of Checkmate Workstation™. Checkmate Workstation gives you access to Car-Part tools that will help you increase sales and improve your business's efficiency. We have new pricing for Fast Parts customers to upgrade to our powerful Checkmate inventory management system. Call today for details.

The CrashLink™ program has been a big hit with users because it allows you to make more money off of cars that are already in stock. CrashLink's unique way of showing the interchange of parts that are not currently in our interchange records allows recyclers to be more informed so they can sell more parts. We have new pricing on this product, so give me a call if you need more information.

When you have a chance this month, please give me a call so we can go over your current inventory management needs. I will be calling all of you about the new products we will be introducing over the next few months, but you can call me if you want to get the jump on everyone!

Thank You!
