Hello Fast Parts® Users!

The big news is out! Car-Part is paying the up-front license fees for the upgrade to its Checkmate® inventory management system. All those features you have been asking for are available now in the Checkmate system, without a setup charge:
  • Track your purchase orders
  • View pictures alongside your parts
  • Barcode your loose parts
  • eBay® upload compatible
  • QuickBooks integration
  • Automatic extended warranties
  • Unlimited part notes
  • and more!
In September, over 50 Fast Parts™ users got the Checkmate demo to see all the valuable tools available, including Checkmate's Alternate Parts feature that brings up non-interchanged parts from vehicles that may have matching parts. As a Fast Parts user you can take advantage of this offer from Car-Part, but the free upgrade is for a limited time only. Give me a call for your Checkmate demo today!

Fast Parts users who have upgraded are pleased with the seamless transition of their data. For the last five years, Checkmate programmers have perfected the data transfer from Fast Parts to Checkmate. All your historical information, together with all your inventory data, will be ready for you on day one of your conversion. You can expect the same great service from Checkmate support that you have come to rely on from Fast Parts technicians – because we are the same company. Be assured that the Checkmate training will be both thorough (to bring you up to speed quickly) and ongoing (to answer any questions that may come up later). If you have any questions about the upgrade, call me and let's start gathering information today.

If you are not ready to make the switch to Checkmate right away, but would like to improve your system's value, consider one of the Fast Parts compatible features like Partmate™ or CrashLink™. Both of these programs will transfer over to the Checkmate system when you upgrade. We have talked about the Partmate system and how it simplifies your inventory process, but did you know the Partmate setup price has been reduced? Using Partmate with the amazing SmartVin™ feature will speed up your inventory process and prevent those mistakes from selecting incorrect part options. With the new lower setup charge, all Fast Parts users can afford this valuable add on.

CrashLink increases the profit of your vehicles in inventory by increasing the amount of parts you sell off of each vehicle. Ever looked through a crash book at the amount of information that is available and wished you had that information in your inventory system? Well, your wait is over. CrashLink has thousands of interchanged parts that have no interchange in the Fast Parts system. Many interior parts, like consoles and sun visors, are given interchange information as well as the up-to-date dealer pricing needed to make an informed sale. Think of all the core engines that you have with valuable parts that you can inventory with interchange and increase your profit on all your vehicles with CrashLink. I have a new price for CrashLink that should make this product even more profitable.

Thank you for all your calls last month and please give me a call for information on all these new and exciting products.

Thank You!
