Hello Fast Parts® Users!

We have been having some record-breaking cold weather in some parts of the US recently and as a result, a couple of Fast Parts servers froze up and needed to be replaced. When this happens, it reminds me to remind you to keep good backups on all your data. If you have any concerns about your system not being backed up properly, give the tech support group a call at 800-288-7414 and go over the procedure with them. Backing up your Fast Parts inventory data is an important responsibility that we depend on you to complete on a regular basis.

Most of our Fast Parts users have the Linux version and use a specially designed server to run your Fast Parts software. If that computer crashes, our new solution is to convert your data to the updated version of Checkmate. The benefit to you is that you don't have to replace the expensive Linux server and you can purchase an inexpensive computer locally or use a computer you already have, with the help of our tech department. Computers used in a daily business environment should last 3-5 years, so give me a call if you are running on borrowed time and let's talk about converting you to the updated Checkmate system. Car-Part is paying for the conversion and sending people to your location to train you on the system, so it should be a no-brainer to convert soon. It takes up to 2 months to schedule the conversion, so call today so we can fit you in the conversion schedule. We have converted over a hundred Fast Parts users over the last few years and they are enjoying the new features and benefits the Checkmate system allows. Call me today so we can talk about this important business improvement.

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 take this opportunity 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.

Most of you are replacing your calendars this month, so remember to save early August for the Car-Part Industry Conference in Kentucky. I will be getting you more information soon. Let's work together and have the best year ever.

Thank You!
