With Star Connect, you can welcome new customers from your logistical chain with open arms. Chain cooperation becomes a lot easier. This power strip (ESB; Enterprise Service Bus) enables you to quickly and safely link existing systems with each other. This gives you the opportunity to purchase specialist applications for all your specific processes. Not just your ERP software, internal systems, but especially systems from customers, suppliers and other links in the logistics chain can be easily connected via this ESB software. Through your ESB you have an overall dashboard in which you can monitor your total data communication. If the EDI logistics connection is inactive or the information is not supplied correctly, you will be well informed in advance so that immediate action can be taken. Once you have installed it in your company, you will be able to quickly and adequately tackle any future integration problems.

Star Connect is a central EDI communication platform (ESB) for the exchange of electronic data, which uses the free open source tool from Talend. This is a power strip where your applications and the applications of all your chain parties with whom you collaborate can easily plug in to. This has been enriched by Yellowstar with mapping (drag and drop) and dashboards. Mapping ensures that connecting a new party to a standard message can be easily realised and dashboard alerts make it easy to monitor, so that the process continues smoothly. Star Connect is the ‘administrator’ that stores data correctly, safely and in a locatable way in your underlying application landscape. Multiple databases and applications are automatically supported with EDI links for logistical system integration. That gives you the freedom to choose applications that are compatible with your business operations. Pure efficiency!
