November 2017
Hello Fast Parts® Users!

We have made it through another year! 2017 has been a pretty good year in the auto recycling industry. I hope your year is ending on a positive note. I always like to reflect on the past year during the month of December, so I can make positive changes from lessons learned. Let me start by giving you a simple reminder that could save you a huge amount of trouble if you are not making this procedure a regular part of your day. One of the most overlooked duties in using a computer is remembering to do your backup regularly. I can't tell you how sick the feeling is when someone's computer crashes and they have not backed up their data in a long time. Don't fall in this trap. Back up your files often and take the back up to another location so your files are safe. Click here for more information about backing up Fast Parts data.

I hope you realized that the upgraded Checkmate management system could cost less monthly than what you are paying now for the Fast Parts system. It is true that Checkmate can be a better bargain than Fast Parts, depending on the features you require. Call me and let me know how you use Fast Parts so we can see if it is time time for you to upgrade to Checkmate. Remember that if you subscribe to Car-Part Web Services, you can combine that service with your Checkmate service and get a better bundled price. After talking to all of the recyclers who are still using Fast Parts, over 50% said they would like to convert to Checkmate this winter while business is slow and they have time to spend on the conversion. If you have not called me to schedule your conversion, let's talk right away about when your conversion to Checkmate would best fit your schedule.

Part images are now being shown along with descriptions on part search results. Recyclers who have signed up for this feature are starting to upload their images along with their inventory information. It is a proven fact that when all things are equal, customers will buy the product that has a picture posted. I have had great reviews from customers who are posting pictures. They are telling me that customers are purchasing additional parts because of what they see on the vehicle the pictures. Call me and we can discuss what you will need to do, to join with your fellow recyclers who are showing pictures of their parts on, Car-Part Pro, Trading Partners, recycler websites, and mobile app search results.

Do you remember how when you signed up for Car-Part Web Services, I suggested that you have your own web page so your customers could go to your site and just see your parts? Car-Part is now offering a MyPartsApp service to set up your very own business "app" for smartphone users. Your app shows only your business information and only your parts. Download the app and see how easy it is to use in finding parts. We can set up an app that works the same but with only your parts showing. Give me a call and we can talk more about the app for your business.

All the people here at Car-Part want to take this time to wish you and your family very Happy Holidays! We are thankful you have chosen us as business partners and we will continue to search for ways to make your New Year a successful one.
