Thank You for Making the Fourth Annual Car-Part Industry Conference a Success!

On August 9-11, hundreds of recyclers from across the US and Canada came to Northern Kentucky for the 2012 Car-Part Industry Conference. We want to thank everyone who came to receive training, attend classes, and hear panel discussions by and industry experts. We are overwhelmed with the positive response we received! You, the recyclers, are what made this year's conference so successful, and we want to extend our thanks for traveling and taking time out of your busy workweek (and weekend!) to spend time learning and discussing industry issues with us.

Recyclers who attended were able to receive one-on-one training from our expert support staff, meet with our product developers, hear from auto recycling and collision industry experts, learn how to use new features in the products they already use every day, and see "sneak peeks" of brand new products and enhancements that we are working on right now.

Highlights included:
  • Collision Industry Panel Discussion featuring Peter Piotrowski (ERIE Insurance), Peter Lovasz (Mitchell International), Michael O'Leary (The Innovation Group), Don Porter (State Farm, retired), and more
  • Keynote presentations by Randy Reitman, President of ARA, and Steve Fletcher, Executive Director of ARC, OARA, and ARAAC
  • Classes by Bill Fox of Fox Auto Salvage, Brent Mullins of Mullins Auto, Robert Counts of Counts Business Consulting, Linda Gravett of Gravett and Associates, and DJ Harrington of Phone Logic, Inc.
  • Preview of Checkmate's upcoming sales interface
  • Preview of Checkmate's QuickBooks Integration
  • Tutorials on the new Partmate Desktop Review feature, Car-Part data in Bidmate, and the new Checkmate Listing Manager for eBay
  • Instruction on leveraging your Car-Part Pro account to increase profits and sell more recycled parts to professional repairers
  • Information on the current state of NMVTIS
  • Tours of Reitman Auto Parts, Foreign Auto Salvage, and the main data center
  • Evening networking in the hospitality suite
  • Friday night riverboat dinner cruise on the Ohio River
  • Saturday night party featuring's very own VW Beetles band and The Frankl Project, a local Cincinnati rock band
