Checkmate Sales Pro
Checkmate Sales Pro is the modern interface for finding and selling parts in your inventory. It was designed with speed in mind. Find and sell an unlimited number of parts at one time. See part images alongside your search results. Navigate through your workflow with your mouse or with your keyboard - however you feel comfortable.

Everything is faster and easier with Sales Pro! From the main screen, you can:

  • Search for the customer before you search for the part
  • See quick, at-a-glance information about the customer's order and payment history, along with open quotes, returns, and credits
  • Easily search for multiple parts at once - search by part name, part code, or OEM number
  • Research your quotes, work orders, purchase orders, invoices, and more
  • Switch between tasks in a snap

From your search results, you can:

  • Totally customize your screen to show the information you want with each part
  • View the sales history for a particular part and interchange
  • View part and vehicle images for each result, and easily email images to customers
  • Easily sell multiple parts at once
  • View Car-Part Exchange parts in your results, so you can work with brokered parts as easily as inventoried parts
  • View Demand Data
  • View the core value of a part, and include it on the invoice
  • Create quotes, work orders, invoices, credits, and returns with just one click or keystroke
  • Automatically create purchase orders as you work, and print or email them
  • Email invoices with barcodes
  • Access Inventory Pro to edit part information and keep your inventory clean and accurate
  • Launch a Trading Partners search to find or price your parts
  • Add unlimited private part notes - your inventory crew and sales team stay in communication with time-stamped notes on each part

Checkmate Retro
The older version ("blue screen") of Checkmate is still available, but now it's called Checkmate Retro. You can even have Checkmate Retro and Checkmate Sales Pro at work on the same machine! Each user can use Checkmate the way they like best.

Checkmate Inventory Pro
Inventory Pro is Checkmate's "command central" for inventory management. Not only can you add vehicle records and add loose parts, but it's also simple and straightforward for you to keep your inventory information clean and accurate. Built-in audits quickly uncover parts that need your attention or review. It's a snap to edit a single part, or even edit hundreds of parts at once, so you can quickly adjust to the market and encourage sales.

For example, you can:

  • Quickly find all parts that need grades assigned, or parts with a grade that may need to be updated.
  • Search for engines that have been in stock for over 2 years, and decrease all the prices by 10%.
  • Identify which parts are popular in your region, but that aren't getting many requests at your business. Edit part information or send the parts to Photomate (so your team can take pictures on their smartphones).
  • Review and update the highest-dollar Resolution Parts (parts that need interchange assigned) so they are visible when customers search marketplaces.
  • Find parts that are still bolted onto a vehicle you're crushing, to scrap them and remove them from inventory.

Important changes like these can be made rapidly in Inventory Pro, so you can ensure that your parts are accurately described and priced when they're uploaded to online part listings.

Here's a demonstration of how some of these features work:

Checkmate Workstation gives you access to many Checkmate and Car-Part tools from within one program, and these tools help you increase sales and improve your business's efficiency. Checkmate Workstation is free with Internet Checkmate, but some of the tools require an additional charge.

The Checkmate Workstation Dashboard gives you a real-time overview of your business, with dozens of "gadgets" that display charts and graphs with essential information about sales, inventory, employees, and more. These gadgets can calculate your business information for today, a day in the past, or for a specific time span. Click to learn more.

Checkmate Imaging allows you to easily add images to your parts and vehicles. These images can then be viewed in Checkmate or uploaded online to, Car-Part Pro, Trading Partners, your own website, and eBay. When you can see a picture of a part or vehicle, you can make more informed decisions when deciding between similar parts. Imaging increases employee productivity by enabling them to more accurately select which part to pull. Click to learn more.

eBay (Checkmate Listing Manager) eBay (Checkmate Listing Manager)
Our Checkmate Listing Manager for eBay tool allows you to list many parts on eBay at once, with just the click of a button. eBay gives you the opportunity to sell parts that may not sell frequently in your yard. It's fast and easy because our eBay tool automatically pulls detailed information and images from Checkmate and creates the listing for you! It also works with eBay Business Policies.
