Zoom Home Page
This is the homepage. You can simply browse the catalogs for products from here. To order online, you must log in. Search capabilities are restricted to Northern part number only until you have logged in. If you are going to search and purchase a product, we recommend going right to the Sign In link and logging in before browsing for your product. Once signed in, you will stay signed in for up to 4 hours without activity. After 4 hours, the system will log you out due to inactivity.
Zoom Sign In
This is the page that you come to after choosing the Sign In link. Enter your username and password in the login box to continue. If you haven’t requested a login, please click the request login link, fill out the form and click submit. A username and password will be sent to you if you are currently a Northern customer.
Zoom Once Signed In Once logged in, you will notice that the system recognizes what company you are with, what store you are (if one was chosen) and you can see what warehouse you are shopping out of. This new site allows for easy change of warehouse by clicking the pull-down menu and selecting a new location, BUT… keep in mind, if you change the warehouse and you had items in your cart, the items MAY drop from the cart if the item is not available from the newly selected warehouse.

Product Detail Page Updates
This coming year we plan to take a scrutinizing look at our website and adjust some verbiage and organization of details to address some inconsistencies. This will not be a major disruption to using the website, the products themselves will remain in the same navigational places. What you will see change is the structure of the details of each individual product page. Some changes will include:
Expected and consistent information (specifications) will all be placed into the Item Details table below the product
Each product within the same product family will have the same information
Zoom Product Details
On the item detail page, you can see a larger picture, the Item Details, Alternate Views of the product, and additional information if available. You can also see availability, check other warehouses, see your cost as well as jobber price, and have the ability to add to your cart from this page as well.
