The Car-Part Scoop
(Smaller) New Features in
Bidmate and Partmate
We recently released $martList, the new Partmate feature that does the hard work for you to answer the question: "What should I inventory?"
But in addition to $martList, we also recently added a handful of other helpful new features to Bidmate and Partmate. Check it out:
  • Account for more Overhead costs when evaluating a vehicle. In your Recycler Options settings, you can now identify the costs of dismantling, pulling from the yard, stocking/retrieval from the warehouse, and prepping for delivery or shipping.
  • Account for parts that you market differently than other parts by setting Projected Sales settings at the part level.
  • Update parts lists and streamline your inventory process with new Default Categories for parts.
  • Customize the vehicle Options easier than ever on the new Options Configuration window.
  • See the full Part Names in the drop-down on the Parts tab. Turn this on by going to the View menu>Display Part Names option.
  • CrashLink Labor data is now used to calculate more precise Dismantle Times or Pull Times, in both Bidmate and Partmate. This incorporates a built-in adjustment for the differences between vehicle models. (This feature is only available if you subscribe to CrashLink Labor Time Calculations).

When you're inventorying with $martList, if there are valuable parts on this particular vehicle that you don't have on your parts list, $martList puts them at the end of your parts list, marked with ($). (Don't worry, this is just for the current vehicle; no permanent changes are made to the parts list you used to inventory the vehicle.) This alerts you to valuable parts with sales potential that you may not be aware of.  
Tip: If you want to see only the parts that are on the parts list you?re using to inventory the vehicle (and no additional parts that $martList determined were valuable), select the $martList menu>Clear All option.
