Generix Group, a leading publisher of collaborative management solutions, and Systar, a leader in the field of Business Activity Monitoring (BAM), have signed an international partnership agreement. Generix Group will use Systar's core business to offer TradeXpress customers Event Manager for TradeXpress, a product intended to enhance reactivity to operational contingencies.
"In increasingly collaborative environments, companies have a growing need for reliable and profitable inter-company management solutions. Our customers have expressed requirements for proactivity in the face of potential contingencies. They seek to better manage value chain responsibilities," says Michel Jardat, Director of Strategy and Alliances for Generix Group. "By integrating Systar's technology, we can enable TradeXpress customers to reduce their risks in view of better managing their operational commitments."
Systar's BAM solution enables functional and IT managers to react rapidly in the event of a process malfunction. BAM (Business Activity Monitoring) allows permanent real-time monitoring of operations, critical business processes and key performance indicators.
TradeXpress is Generix Group's B2B integration platform; it reduces administration costs and accelerates companies' business process by automating exchanges throughout the value chain. Around 800 companies worldwide use TradeXpress, including Banque de France, Belron Carglass, Carrefour, DHL, Dachser, Danone, and Gefco.
By integrating Systar technology with TradeXpress, Generix Group immediately shortens their customers’ response time in the face of critical events. A series of warning rules and normality criteria are used to assess end-to-end process quality, to identify critical situations and to predict their impact on the end result.
Bertrand Bouhour, Systar's COO, says, "The major market analysts agree on the fact that BAM represents an efficient and pragmatic approach to improve processes in companies with critical data flows. The partnership between Generix Group and Systar strengthens both our companies: it represents a good opportunity to increase Systar's presence in industries such as electronic commerce, logistics, retail, manufacturing and in all direct logistics flow activities, and it enables Generix Group to provide its customers with ever more efficient and global solutions for managing their commitments and increasing their competitiveness”. He concludes, "This alliance is an additional recognition of the value of Systar’s technology and of its expertise in BAM and is a further step in Systar’s strategy to grow its channel revenues."
Generix Group has already integrated Event Manager for its own management requirements. Event Manager will be progressively rolled out to the other business applications (ERP and Supply Chain Management) sold by Generix Group. By continuing its strategy of developing its product offers through partnerships established with the market's leading experts, Generix Group thus intends to help its customers achieve a head start in their respective markets.

Systar is listed on the NYSE Euronext Paris Stock Exchange (ISIN: FR0000052854-SAR) and has offices in North America and Europe.
