Hello Fast Parts® Users!

I just got back from the best Car-Part Industry Conference to date! With all the great new tools Car-Part introduced at this conference, it should have everyone talking for months. Some of the major topics that were discussed were the announcement of Car Part Auction, EZ-Route truck routing, brokering on Car-Part Pro, and the installation of Car-Part Pro into the Mitchell estimating system. It would take a book to go over all the new products, so when you have time give me a call and I will go over all the latest news from our recycling industry. If you did not make it this year, put August on your calendar for next year as a "must-attend" conference.

As you are most likely aware, most of my time lately has been devoted to upgrading our Fast Parts users to our Checkmate inventory management system. If you have not had an in-depth conversation with me about upgrading to Checkmate, you need to take the time so we can weigh your options. Someone once said, "A picture is worth a thousand words." I think in the world of auto recycling you might say, "Pictures are worth thousands of dollars." When starts showing pictures in search results, parts without pictures will be at a disadvantage. For this reason, it is time to gear up for the future change by taking pictures of your vehicles and major components. By changing from the Fast Parts system to the Checkmate management system, you will be able to easily post those pictures when that feature becomes available on Car-Part is continuing to pay the setup charge to all Fast Parts users who convert to Checkmate at this time, so the cost of converting is very little and sometimes free! Call me now for more information about why you should convert to Checkmate.

For all the Car-Part Pro users, we are giving you a free trial of the brokering service so you can see which brokers you can use that make you the most money. Many of you chose a major vendor like Brock Supply or The Connection to team up with. Because Car-Part is giving you this free trial, maybe you need to try some more vendors. How about making a decision to broker a wheel specialty vendor or a new radiator vendor? This could be your chance to open a whole new line of parts for your sales area. If you're confused about how brokering works or need a list of broker vendors to choose from, give me a call so I can show you how selling brokered parts can open a whole new revenue stream for your business.

I know that finding the right combination of Car Part products for your business can be intimidating but that is why I am here to help you with your choices and keep you in the know about the entire new product line we offer to the auto recycling industry. Give me a call soon so we can go over any questions you may have

Thank You!
