Dealers nationwide will soon be able to order any ClarkDietrich clip or connector product with the click of a button through the new Express Connect ordering platform. Set to launch in July 2020, the mobile-friendly website contains product information for more than 350 of the company’s commercial, residential and institutional clip and connectors, as well as comparative data on commonly used competing products, giving users key data to make purchasing decisions.

Express Connect combines around-the-clock access for simplified ordering with an intuitive, easy-to-use, interactive platform with all the relevant information found on in one user-friendly interface. Other features include:

  • Real-time inventory tracking
  • Competitive product comparison
  • Easy-to-select nationwide shipping options
  • Pricing details and bundling options
  • Recurring purchase settings
  • Advanced search options

“We spend a considerable amount of time speaking with our dealer network on how we can best make their lives easier, and flexible, around-the-clock access to information is consistently at the top of the list,” said Brett Hironimus, sales director, ClarkDietrich Clip Express. “With the launch of Express Connect we hope to have exceeded their expectations by providing an offering this unique from a steel framing manufacturer.”

ClarkDietrich has long been on the forefront of digital tools since the company debuted its iTools platform in 2013. A first-of-its-kind from a steel framing manufacturer, the web-based app gives contractors and architects access to a broad range of data including cost-saving calculators, design tools, ClipExpress Navigation, CAD Details, LEED request forms and product literature directly--all from their desktop or mobile devices.

“Our Clip Express team has worked diligently on the launch of Express Connect, and the feedback we've received to date confirms what we expected; that Express Connect will be a valuable resource for dealers by adding a new level of convenience and ease to the ordering process,” said Terry Westerman, vice president of marketing, ClarkDietrich. “We will continue to push the envelope around our digital offerings with new online tools for contractors, architects/specifiers and dealers.”

ClarkDietrich’s Clip Express Service is a dedicated and streamlined support and delivery system for steel framing connection products. It’s the industry’s top source for fast and economical connection solutions. With huge finished product inventories and a ship-it-now mentality, Clip Express helps keep projects on-time and under budget.
