Over the past 15 years we have grown from an idea to an organization whose mission is to create voluntary industry standards that reduce cost and complexity for dealers, while increasing innovation and returns for all members.
As the STAR organization grows, so does its portfolio of standards, guidelines, and member implementations. These accomplishments and the momentum that STAR is gaining are a direct result of, and attributed to, the participation of our membership. Each member organization brings with it subject matter experts, business process knowledge, and most importantly, it’s commitment and support of industry standards.
As a member of STAR, you will have the opportunity to help develop voluntary industry information technology (IT) standards, which can improve the operational performance, effectiveness, timeliness and competitiveness of your company and it’s business partners.
In addition to the numerous general benefits listed below, STAR offers solutions to the unique issues faced by Manufacturers (OEMs), Retail Service Providers(RSPs), and Dealers.
