The Car-Part Scoop
Checkmate's New Version Drives Online Sales
The latest version of Checkmate is designed to increase sales of your parts in online marketplaces, especially to the collision repair industry.
Checkmate 2023R1 (build 94) was released earlier this year, and it's designed to help you sell more parts. You may have already received this update, which includes powerful new tools to help maintain your inventory, such as Views and audits.
If you use Checkmate but you have not yet updated, now's the time! (Click here to begin.)  Here's why: Checkmate's improvements and features are designed to help drive sales of your parts on and Integrated Car Part Pro (iPro).

These online marketplaces advertise your parts not only to retail customers, but also to insurance appraisers, body shops, and other recyclers. These customers (and the software they use to source parts), require clear descriptions and accurate part grading. Accurate inventory information has always been important, but it becomes more important all the time as crucial new features are added to the marketplace.
Shoppers aren't just reading your descriptions - they're also sorting and filtering by details like part condition. There are also features that help shoppers match component parts from an estimate to entire recycled assemblies. This intelligence makes it easy for shops and insurance companies to buy recycled parts, and that's the primary reason that iPro marketplace parts buyers in North America increase their recycled part utilization by 80% after using iPro (based on 2022 data).
In order for shoppers to find your parts when using these features (component-to-assembly matching, filtering, etc.), it's essential that your inventory data is accurate, consistent, and up-to-date. We need to be confident that your inventory information is accurate, and that assemblies are complete. That's the purpose and the goal of many of the new features: to help you improve your inventory data and better prepare your parts to thrive in the marketplace.
