Photomate 2.1: Relocate without
Scanning Tags (Lookup by Stock #)

Introducing the latest version of the Photomate mobile app, available in the app store today! Make sure to download the new update available for your app to unlock the new features.

Relocate Parts without Scanning Tags

In Photomate 2.1, you can now relocate parts without scanning the part tag, which is useful when a tag is lost, damaged, or just not convenient to scan at the moment (like if you're on the loader and want to move a VUC). In the Location Manager, simply enter the Stock number and select the Part Type to look up the part you want to relocate. Then enter (or scan) the new Location Tag, and you're done!

Relocate VUC

In addition, now when you are relocating a VUC with Photomate, you have the option of also relocating any parts that share the same stock number and location as the VUC. This helps keep your Checkmate data accurate by giving you an opportunity to update the location of all appropriate parts at once.

Already have Photomate?

Remember, to unlock the new features, you must update your app to the latest version available from the App Store. Your Checkmate Rest Server (CMRS) must also be updated to version for these new Photomate features to work. (Checkmate Workstation prompted you for an update earlier this week.) Want to learn more about how these new Photomate 2.1 features work? Visit our Photomate Training Page and look for the videos at the top of the list.

FREE Upcoming Webinars

In this webinar, we will discuss Brokering parts on Car-Part Pro. (This information is the key to more sales - 48% of parts added to estimates through Car-Part Pro are brokered!)
You are welcome to attend whether or not you currently broker parts, but the content will be geared toward those who already have this service set up and would like to understand how to use it. We will cover:
  • How brokered parts appear on Car-Part Pro
  • How to recognize a request for a brokered part
  • How to use your F-keys to locate brokered part information
  • How to understand the pricing structure (including markup)
