Hello Fast Parts® Users!

Are you missing sales because of your outdated interchange information? The solution is just a call away and can be had for little or no expense to you. Checkmate is the answer to improve your used auto parts business and pay less in fees each month. 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 other services from We are also offering you an extra day of on-site training, making it 3 total days of training at no cost to you. In addition, there will be no charge for our connection 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 available 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 also offering 6 months of Car-Part Gold for free! This free offer is opening the eyes of users who had not tried Car-Part Gold lately. Car-Part is now showing over 100 million images per month on our websites, causing more add-on sales with purchases. When your customers can see a pictures of 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 this large and growing part of the used auto parts market. When you upgrade to Checkmate you can bundle these three products:
  1. Checkmate management system
  2. Partmate mobile inventory tool
  3. Car-Part Gold web services
This bundle gives you fantastic savings! You will receive one monthly invoice for all three services that includes a discount.

Other sure ways to add much-needed revenue is by brokering aftermarket parts and forming buying alliances with other auto recyclers. 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.

Another popular way to increase sales is to sell more parts off the vehicles that are already in stock. 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 sell in the past. The same diagrams that 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. You might want to try this trick to increase profit!

From 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.
