What could be better than Star’s flexible and limitless selection of metal building components?
Having it at your fingertips 24 hours a day for every step of the process – from shopping to shipping!
Star’s Components Online (COL II) web-based application gives you access to nearly 4,000 parts – and with all of the available sizes, colors and other choices Star offers, there are more than 250,000 options to meet your unique building design needs.
The application is available to all Star builders who have been set up to use Star’s COL II and FASTAR® systems, and can be used to search parts, get an estimate, place an order, review previous orders, and more.
COL II’s user-friendly interface design makes it simple to choose from six product categories – Panels, Trim, Accessories, Secondary Structural, Bracing, and Hardware – that cover components for nearly every Star Building product. Each category’s sub-menu allows you to narrow your search and navigate to your desired product selection quickly. For added convenience, parts may be searched by part number or by keyword.
Once a component is selected, you will be prompted to enter key data to ensure accuracy of your order. For parts with incremental quantity requirements, fields will automatically populate with the requisite quantity. As you add items to your cart, a “Frequently Bought Together” section will appear at the bottom of the window, displaying photos and information for products that many builders typically buy with the items you are purchasing. This feature is updated every night at Star, giving you the most up-to-date information to guide you in your purchasing decisions based on the valuable experience of other Star builders.
The last step, selecting your preferred shipping, crating, freight and payment methods, includes all of the options currently available to you when ordering from your Star sales representative. There are also opportunities to indicate purchases that are tax exempt or for resale, so ordering for every type of transaction is as seamless as the in-person experience you know and love with Star. As soon as you click ‘submit’, Star personnel will receive an alert, accept the order, and send a return email letting you know the order has been accepted and is in the system.
If you are not currently using the COL II and FASTAR® options, your Star representative can set up your account today – and give you easier, faster access to components every day (or night!) of the week.
