IB Picture edit toolsInventory Buddy Version 7 has added several new features to make inventorying cars easier and smarter! Additional picture controls have been added where you can now crop pictures in our Final Desktop Review, and automatically add watermark logos to the pictures (however, as an FYI, watermark logos may violate eBay terms). If you are a Bid Buddy customer, as well, you could even cheat and automatically import the auction pictures into your Inventory Buddy.

Added integration with URG Parts Pro has added a crash guide data hotkey to Inventory Buddy. Hotkeys for eBay Sold Listings and generic Google searches are one button click away now, too. You can now also automatically save a recall report in your vehicle pictures to prove you checked for recalls at the time of inventory. Those recalls are automatically checked and displayed as you inventory the vehicle to ensure you are properly notified of recalled parts, and will automatically tell you if RAS is paying for the recalled airbag. Support for additional cloud utilities besides Dropbox, such as Google Drive and simple file sharing has been added as well.

Inventory Buddy makes it very easy to walk around the vehicle to inventory a new salvage purchase, note damages, and take pictures all on a Windows Tablet, and we then transfer the file over to your normal PC to price the parts before putting them into your Powerlink or Pinnacle Professional Inventory Management System. Our support staff is only a phone call or simple connect up away from helping you inventory cars even quicker today!

About Us

Buddy Automotive Innovations has been serving well over 1,000 professional automobile recyclers across the U.S., Canada, and Australia for going on 14 years. Buddy Automotive was founded in July 2003 by Mike Lambert and John Johnson. Inventory Buddy and Bid Buddy are designed specifically for Auto Recyclers to make their businesses more efficient and profitable. We currently have 2 full time sales reps and 6 full time support technicians and over 1,400 Buddies in use today.

John Johnson Jr (a.k.a. Triple J) graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University in 2003 with a BS in Computer Science and a minor in Business Administration. All throughout college, John worked at his father’s salvage yard, Parker Street Used Auto Parts in Manchester, CT.

All of the software John has created for the industry is based on his desire to find a better way to do things. He wrote his first program in 2000, a Junk Car Database that handles all the paperwork processing, title tracking, and state reporting for all vehicles coming into the yard. This program is still in use today. John also worked for the ARA Services Corporation back in the early 2000’s to first help them extract data from Checkmate Systems.

It is through this work that John met Mike Lambert.

After working via phone for over a year, John and Mike finally met in person at the 2003 IT show, where John demonstrated his prototype of what is now the Inventory Buddy to Mike. Within 3 months they began a joint business effort to market the Inventory Buddy, and then Bid Buddy.

John also has a real passion for the Agricultural Fair industry, as a member of the Hebron Lions Club that holds one of the top 3 annual Fairs in CT. John is a Past President of the Hebron Lions Club and Past Fair Superintendent of the Hebron Harvest Fair. He is also the very first person to receive an official designation of Certified Volunteer Fair Manager from the International Association of Fairs and Expositions in 2015.
