New Product Coming Soon

We are pleased to announce WinStar - our new tracking software for companies servicing Backflow prevention units.

 This is a subset of our popular STAR software currently available for DOS. This upgrade is being developed using FoxPro Version 9 - the latest version of Microsoft's (tm) premier database environment.  WinStar has all the Windows look and feel with the same power, flexibility and usability of STAR.  We have extracted the features of most interest to Backflow prevention companies to create a product targeted just for them. 

WinStar should be available in September, 2009.  This product will sell for $1,999.

The upgrade price for existing STAR users is $999. 

This product requires Microsoft (tm) Windows XP or Vista to run properly.


Winstar provides customer information tracking, municipal agency tracking, backflow unit tracking and supports yearly inspection requirement notification and tracking.  Reports show which units require their yearly inspection.  WinStar will create letters to send to your customers informing them of the need for their yearly inspection and allow you to track which customers have complied and which haven't.  Detailed information of each backflow unit is maintained as well as important customer and contact information relating to each backflow unit.

Current STAR users will be able to upgrade to WinStar without losing any of their current data. STAR users will be notified when WinStar is released.
