Do you use eBay Business Policies for your listings?

Inventory Pro is Checkmate's "command central" for inventory management. This course will show you how to add vehicle records, inventory loose parts, and maintain inventory information by "drilling down" to exactly the parts you want to edit, making and saving your changes in just a few clicks.

In this class, we’ll show you the Integrated Car Part Pro (iPro) from the other side. You'll get insight into the the experience and perspective of your customers, repair shops and insurance adjusters in British Columbia who use iPro to find the right part (at the right price) for the repair.

Ecommerce: Car-Part.com, eBay, and Beyond (Plus Inventory DOs and DON'Ts)
In this course, we'll cover all the keys to successfully selling parts in a world that is increasingly online. We'll discuss best practices for images, internet sales, and inventory, to show you how to create part listings that perform competitively in today’s online marketplaces.
Using Car-Part Demand Data to Get Started
In this course, we’ll show you how Car-Part Demand Data delivers insight-driving data for today’s auto recyclers. Car-Part.com Demand Data provides data for local, regional, and global requests for parts, giving you the access to the information you need to bid wisely, inventory strategically, and price parts competitively. In Partmate, Car-Part Demand Data helps power the $martList algorithm ($martList easily identifies parts that will lead to profits for you).
1:00pm-4:00pm – Classes
CrashLink and Car-Part Interchange Plus for Checkmate, Powerlink, and Pinnacle
CrashLink is our first-in-class OE information tool. Using Motor® data, CrashLink serves as a powerful research tool. In this class, we’ll show how to use CrashLink to search for parts by OE number (or other criteria) and view list price history, application information (even for non-interchange parts!), and detailed part diagrams.
We’ll also introduce you to Car-Part Interchange Plus (CPI+), which provides new and enhanced interchange for parts for all major makes and models (including Mazda and Mitsubishi!). Parts with interchange are much more visible in online searches on Car-Part.com marketplaces. And CrashLink puts CPI+ within reach for Pinnacle and Powerlink users! Come discover how to tap into the $400 million/year CPI+ opportunity in the Car-Part.com marketplace!
Part Grading New Features / Web Inconsistency Report
The latest Checkmate build massively enhances part grading. Checkmate now recognizes Subjective Part Types, such as “Seats” or “Glass,” which are graded on criteria specific to that part type (not mileage or damage units). To assist in inventory management, Checkmate Inventory Pro can now run powerful audits that find any parts in your inventory with inconsistent or missing part information, so you can edit the parts to perform optimally in online marketplaces.
Photomate New Features
With abilities that go beyond just snapping pics, our Photomate app enables you to add photos to parts, manage your part locations, assign interchange to Resolution Parts, and even add parts to your inventory, all from your mobile device. In this course, we’ll show you Photomate’s latest enhancements, which make Photomate more dynamic as an editing tool that ever before.
Partmate and $martList New Features
Partmate, our portable inventory tool, makes the process of inventorying new vehicles quicker, easier, and simpler than ever before. Partmate is made powerful by its $martList feature, which identifies parts that will lead to profits. $martList's transparent algorithm suggests parts to inventory based on marketplace data, your own sales/requests, inventory, labor, and CPI+. In this course, we’ll show you how the latest updates to Partmate and $martList strategically enhance the inventorying process.
When online shoppers purchase recycled assemblies, they need to feel confident that they know what is and isn’t included with their purchase. To address this need in the market, Checkmate’s latest enhancements make it simple to ensure that your inventory data is accurate when it comes to assemblies. In this class, we’ll show you how Checkmate keeps you informed about changes in assembly status, and enables you to quickly and easily review your inventory data for assemblies that are labeled complete, but are in need of an update.
