Hello Fast Parts® Users!

I wanted to start out by thanking all of you for the calls this month. Your feedback about the effectiveness of the Checkmate conversion process helps us tremendously. We are down to the last of the Fast Parts users, and it really helps to have an easy method of converting everyone over to Checkmate. Our conversion promotion with little or no cost to you is still in effect and waiting for your go-ahead. Some of you are very busy, so I have made myself available to take your calls "off hours" at your convenience. Call my direct number and we can talk about getting you upgraded to the Checkmate inventory management system. Your Fast Parts system is becoming more and more out of date, so call me today!

It is always great to hear from the Fast Parts users who have converted to Checkmate. As part of the conversion, we offer a trial subscription to Car-Part Gold for 6 months free. It has opened the eyes of our users who had not tried Gold lately. Here are a few new statistics from our Car-Part Gold product: Over 20 million images are included in Car-Part online part listings every week, causing more add-on sales to each purchase. Simple... when customers see the part, they buy the part. It just works. Also our mobile traffic has increased to 30% of our traffic, and mobile searches only show parts from Car-Part Gold users. Recyclers who aren't on Car-Part Gold are missing out on a large and growing part of the used auto parts market. When you upgrade to Checkmate, you can bundle your inventory system (Checkmate), your mobile inventory tool (Partmate), and Car-Part Gold web services to get a great savings. One monthly invoice with a discount. You can't beat that.

If you are keeping the Fast Parts system because you don't like changes and you want to keep your business simple and easy to operate, I can help you with that. Just because you change from Fast Parts to Checkmate does not mean you need to hire more people or change the way you do business. I can show you a way to pay less than you pay today for the Fast Parts system by changing to Checkmate. It does not have to cost more to have an inventory management system that includes everything you need to operate a successful used parts business.

Brokering aftermarket parts and forming buying alliances with other auto recyclers will keep your profits where you need them to be in this tough marketplace. Car-Part has designed programs to help you stay competitive. Brokering parts is a great way to increase your inventory online without investing in more physical inventory. Another way to increase profit is by selling more parts off the vehicles you already have. CrashLink can identify more parts on your vehicles, giving you additional interchange information so you can sell those smaller parts that you may not have made available for sale in the past. The same diagrams the body shops and mechanics use are available to you in CrashLink. This gives you a much better understanding of which smaller parts they need in addition to your major parts. When you sell major components, most likely there are smaller parts you could add to your sale. Those sales are pure profit, and make a big difference in your profit margin.

Thanks for your business and loyalty. We are focused on your success!
