Order stock parts directly in Compass. Our initial offering includes chain shackles, anchor shackles and conductor bar components. Learn how in the tutorial below.
Type a model number into the smart search bar and Compass will bring up the product with all characteristics embedded in that part number. Then, you can add it to a quote with no additional work. If you want to configure a specific characteristic of that product, but leave everything else the same, you can do that as well before adding to the cart. See how in the video below.
You can choose Basic or Expert Mode depending on the level of configuration you need. If you only need basic information with basic modification, the configuration process is simplified. If you still need all the options, click on expert mode and you can create highly configured products. See how below.
Upload a spreadsheet with item numbers and quantity to Compass, and we'll give you pricing and lead times with the click of a button. See how easy it is in the video below.
