Hello Fast Parts® Users!

I enjoyed calling all of you last month and inviting you to the 2013 Car-Part Industry Conference. If you have any questions about the conference in August, or about the Fast Parts-to-Checkmate upgrade promotion, please feel free to call me. With all the changes in the industry, this year's conference is more important than ever to attend.

I have been getting great reviews from Car-Part Pro customers who are brokering vendors' parts on their sites. When these recyclers are showing more parts on the part searches, new customers are finding them easier. It just makes sense! If you are showing your inventory of used parts online, and you add aftermarket and new parts to your list of available parts, you will get more calls and more sales. I believe this one feature of the Car- Part Gold program can give your business the boost it needs to go to the next level. If you have questions, call me or come to the conference to find out more about brokering parts on your website and on Car-Part Pro.

Sometimes I forget that there are still some of you who are not using Partmate to inventory your vehicles. The price of a touch screen netbook has come down and when you add the Partmate program to the many uses of the netbook, it makes for an unbeatable combination. Not only will it cut down on the time to inventory your parts, but it will make your work much more reliable. Partmate features SmartVin, which decodes VINs and realizes the interchange number for over 70% of parts automatically, so the chance of inventorying the wrong part is reduced. Partmate costs $35/month, with a one-time $75.00 setup fee with a six month. This is one of the best values Car-Part has to offer!

Car-Part also has a new stand-alone product called Advanced Core Pricing. This program is for yards that would like to know the true core value of the parts on a vehicle before they crush them. Advance Core Pricing will help you determine if it is worth your time to pull the cores off a vehicle before you crush. Here's how it works: core buyers submit the prices they will pay for cores. You enter a vehicle's VIN, then Advanced Core Pricing will give you a list of the cores on the vehicle and prices them. This program works independently of your Fast Parts inventory system and the cost is low. If you are interested in this product, please give me a call.

We are continuing our Fast Parts-to-Checkmate upgrade promotion and many of our Fast Parts users have taken advantage of this free upgrade. I would like to discuss this important business decision with you to map out the details regarding converting to Checkmate. Car Part has a well-thought-out plan to convert you to this more powerful inventory system.

Thank You!
