Hello Fast Parts® Users!

It is your time to upgrade to the Checkmate inventory management system. There are many reasons to convert from your outdated Fast Parts system and we have made it easy to make this upgrade. We want you to change over to the Checkmate system and not spend any money on the conversion. Call me and let me see if we can use some of your equipment for the upgrade. In most cases, there is little or no cost. For the first six months you can try out the Car-Part Gold package and Partmate inventory tool for the same monthly price as you are paying now. After the six months, you can keep those features that are making you money, or use the Checkmate system alone the same way you are using Fast Parts now. You get to choose between bare-bones like the Fast Parts system or the new aggressive Checkmate Sales Pro selling tools and Car-Part Gold. You will need to change soon, so give me a call and we can go over all your options. It takes some time to set up the on-site install, so don't put this off.

If keeping your business simple and easy to operate is your top priority, I can help you with that. Just because you change from Fast Parts to Checkmate does not mean you need to change the way you do business. I can show you a way to pay less than you pay today for the Fast Parts system and change to Checkmate. It does not have to cost more to have an updated inventory management system with everything you need to operate your used parts business.

Our effort to replace the outdated Fast Parts system is slowly drawing to an end. All but a very few Fast Parts systems have been upgraded and we are ready to start the process of converting your system today. Please take the time to call me so we can help you make the switch to Checkmate. I promise we can show you a way to make this an easy adjustment that will end up making your business more profitable and easier to run.

Brokering aftermarket parts and forming buying alliances with other auto recyclers is the new smart way to do business. 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 that 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.

I want to thank all the great Fast Parts users who I spoke with this past month about converting to Checkmate. Your questions and comments help me determine how best to go forward with your conversion and make it easy to upgrade. I will talk to you soon...
