Embracing digital transformation

Star International Ltd is embracing the trend towards digital transformation in the marine industry, with the implementation of a cloud-based system to support growth, improve operational efficiency, and enhance customer and supplier experiences.

We selected Cooper Software to deliver the enterprise resource planning (ERP) initiative, following a competitive evaluation, with a program based on IFS Cloud software.

Considered a more complete solution, the appeal of IFS Cloud is its industry specific design, that eliminates the need for third party add-ons. Cooper Software will be the system integrator of choice having demonstrated both industry knowledge and pedigree with similar projects. The Company’ s unique methodology to support rapid project delivery driving a shorter time to business value was also a deciding factor for the operations at Star International, following a competitive evaluation.

Alongside a range of marine and offshore products, we deliver on-site inspection and servicing packages designed to support the changing needs of shipping schedules, including fire safety, marine evacuation systems and refrigeration. The company is trusted worldwide by leading cruise and ferry operators, shipping companies, shipyards, commercial ports and military organisations.

Star’s Managing Director, Matthew Ball, commented: “Our engagement with Cooper Software focusses on how we will underpin our strategic business objectives through the deployment of marine-specific, best practice processes. They are helping us to understand our roles throughout the project which empowers us to meet aggressive time scales for what is a significant business transformation project.”

Lubin Hoque, Sales Director at Cooper Software added: “The approach we have developed helps customers to evaluate IFS and build a complete understanding of the business benefits and total cost of ownership associated with an ERP transformation. We are also meticulous at defining the optimal engagement model based on the capability and capacity of internal customer resources.”
