Hello Fast Parts® Users!

It is always good to see the start of a new year so we can make new plans and revisit unfinished projects. Our industry has changed so much over the last few years, and Car-Part is leading the way to give us the tools to keep up with the changes. The Checkmate® management system has a new Dashboard feature, which gives you a minute-by-minute look at the progress you are making with all your business activities. The Dashboard screen has what they call "gadgets" designed to keep you tuned in to different aspects of your recycling business. If all this is new to you, give me a call so we can look at the advantages of upgrading to Checkmate. I can still offer you a free upgrade for a limited time.

Car-Part Pro™ is building quite a following as thousands of body shops, mechanic shops, and insurance adjusters are finding fast ways to order parts that meet their delivery and warranty specifications. If you list your parts on Car-Part Pro, these professional buyers will see any of your parts that meet their search criteria. Unlike the standard search, Car-Part Pro gives these professionals more opportunities to filter their search results and find the perfect part for the job. This is another Car-Part product you may want to call me about so we can have a discussion about how valuable it is to your automotive recycling business.

I have had many requests for this product over the years: CrashLink™. For those of you who ask for the information that adjusters and body shops have when giving a quote to repair a vehicle, we can supply it now. CrashLink breaks down all the parts in an assembly, giving you a pictured diagram so you can see the component parts that make up the whole assembly. For example, for a console assembly you will see the cover, latches, hinges, and all the little parts that are included in the assembly. The parts will have up-to-date OEM prices so you can show your customers how much you are saving them. The best part is that you will have interchange on these small parts, allowing you to know at a glance if you have a vehicle with this part. Think about it: sun visors, consoles, relays, and all those other small parts that we did not sell before because it was too much trouble to locate them, can now be found with this amazing program. You can gain thousands of dollars of parts sales with just a keystroke from your computer system. Call me and I will explain the many uses and cost of this new addition to the Fast Parts and Car-Part total solution for your recycling business.

If you are hiring new people or you need a refresher course with any of your Car-Part or Fast Parts products, call our support group and ask for some quality training. Their number is 800-288-7414. They can keep you informed on all the computer tools you have now. Give me a call if you are interested in learning about our new products that can take you to the next level. It is always wise to call me several times a year to see what is new and what new products are on the horizon. I enjoy talking to you, hearing your concerns about our industry and letting you know how Car Part is addressing those issues.

Thank You!
