The Car-Part Scoop

Photomate 3.0:
Add Loose Parts to Your Inventory!

This update is available in the app store today! Update your Photomate app to version 3.0 to unlock these new features.
In Photomate 3.0, the home screen has been redesigned to make it easier to navigate and access your favorite features: Add Image to a Part, Move a Part, and Audit a Location. We've also added an exciting, brand-new feature: Inventory a Part!
You can now use the Photomate mobile app to add a loose part to your inventory!
The new Inventory a Part feature has everything you need to enter information about a part, including year, model, part, interchange, mileage, kind, category, location, ARA damage, and more.
You can mark a part as private, add the part to the Checkmate tag queue, flag the part for review, enter a cost, and view Price Book information for the selected interchange number, right as you're adding the part. For body parts, ARA damage reference images are just a tap away to make it easy to determine and enter ARA damage codes.
Add photos to the part immediately and enter a private part note if you need to. When you're done entering information and adding images, just tap the Upload button and your part will immediately be sent to Checkmate and added to your inventory.

Look Up Parts without Tags in Photomate for Imaging

We've also added a feature that will be handy when you want to add images to a part that doesn't have a tag yet. Now, you can look up parts with just a stock number and part type. Just tap the new Look Up Part button at the bottom of the Add an Image screen. This will be handy for times when you want to add images to a part that does not have a tag yet.

Part Assignments under "Add an Image"

In this update, the list of part assignments and parts that need photos is now under the Add Image to a Part function.
Once you click on that button and you're on the Add an Image screen, please note that we have also renamed the "All Scanned Parts" list - it is now called All Photomate Added Parts.

Already have Photomate? 

Remember, to unlock the new features, you must update your app to the latest version available from your app store. Your Checkmate Rest Server (CMRS) must also be updated to version for these new Photomate features to work. (Checkmate Workstation will prompt you to update.)
