Hello Fast Parts® Users!

It is now official! The 5th Annual Car-Part Industry Conference will be held August 8, 9, 10 2013 at the Holiday Inn at 1717 Airport Exchange Blvd., Erlanger, KY. Now that you know the time and place, please mark this on your calendar and call me for the early bird rate. Come and see the newest road map Car-Part has made for you to navigate the big changes in our industry. With all the new apps, gadgets, and programs in the auto recycling industry, you need to see how Car-Part can help you stay ahead of your competition.

I have noticed a bold dividing line between those recyclers who are successful today and those who are struggling. One of the common themes in separating the two is the ability to change and evolve as new business strategies present themselves. In the past, our industry's business model was based on selling to the public. Today, you have done well if you get 20% of your sales from walk-in customers. All recycling businesses are different, but you can't hide from the fact that we need more business to business customers to make the transition to today's marketplace.

Car-Part has been very busy making new products designed to increase your presence in the professional repair industry. This is why I am asking you to evaluate how your business is using Car-Part's new products. I am extending you an invitation to call me so we can have a discussion about what products you have and what products are available to help you gain more market share in the used parts industry. Some of you need more information on these new products, and some of you need more training on the products you already have. In any case, a serious talk about your business is in order. Call me today!

Car-Part Pro is a new product that is changing the way professional mechanics and body shops are finding the parts they purchase. Just like you, the professional repair industry depends on its computer programs to keep up with business needs. Where we use our systems to price parts and keep up with our sales, the repair industry uses their programs to quote the service and cost of parts for their customers. Car-Part developed Car-Part Pro to make the quoting process quicker and easier for the repair industry. Car-Part Pro allows repairers to identify the best part for the job, not just the cheapest part. With Car-Part Pro, repairers can search for delivery time, warranty, and consistent damage codes that allow them to make more informed decisions. Car-Part Pro has a Purchase Now button that makes it easier for repairers to purchase a part. Car-Part Pro also features Real Time Verification, which allows repairers to determine if you have the part and purchase the part in one action. This saves the professional repairer time and is a way for you to sell more used parts to these customers. Car-Part Pro makes purchasing used parts just as easy for repairers to purchase as OEM and aftermarket parts. Car-Part Pro is just one of our Car-Part Gold products which is all about selling more parts to other businesses. Feel free to call for more information about this great product or any, Fast Parts, or Checkmate Product.

Our free Fast Parts to Checkmate upgrade special is still going on, so please call me with any questions you may have.

Thank You!
