Hello Fast Parts® Users!

As you know, I am on a mission to upgrade your business to the Checkmate inventory management system and convert you from the outdated Fast Parts system you are using today. I know that a simple and easy-to-operate system is your top priority, and 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 now and change to Checkmate. It does not have to cost more to have an upgraded inventory management system. With your Checkmate upgrade, I can give you a discounted monthly price if you also use several services from as well. Checkmate is also offering you an extra day of on-site training, making it 3 total days of training at no cost to you, and there will be no charge on our connecting software (AlphaCom - a $25 per license value). There are even more great incentives available right now, so call me soon for all the details. All of these offers are only for a limited time, so contact me and we can discuss the options we have to make this change a positive one for you.

We are so sure that you will be successful making more sales with, that we are also offering 6 months of Car-Part Gold for free! This free offer has opened the eyes of our users who had not tried Car-Part Gold lately. Here are a few new statistics from our Car-Part Gold service package: Car-Part is now showing over 20 million images per month on our websites, causing more add-on sales with purchases. When your customers can see the part they are looking for, they are more likely to buy the part. It just works that way. Also, more people are using smartphones and tablets, increasing our mobile traffic to 30% of our searches. Recyclers who are not 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 these three products: 1) your Checkmate management system, 2) your Partmate mobile inventory tool, and 3) your Car-Part Gold web services. This bundle will give you a great savings! You will receive one monthly invoice for all three services with a discount.

Brokering aftermarket parts and forming buying alliances with other auto recyclers is a sure way to add much-needed revenue. 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. Brokering your parts with Car-Part requires very little effort on your part, but can pay off big. Here is another popular way to increase sales. You might want to try this trick to increase profit by selling more parts off the vehicles you already have. The CrashLink program can identify more parts on your vehicles, giving you additional interchange information so you can sell those smaller parts that were difficult to sale in the past. The same diagrams the body shops and mechanics use in estimating repairs are available to you in the CrashLink program. This gives you a much better understanding of which smaller parts your customers 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.

In talking to you last month, I know many of you are close to upgrading your inventory system soon. We have a great team of conversion professionals who will make this transition as painless as possible. You are now one of only a very few Fast Parts users left, so please call me to start this upgrade today.
