Protecting and Promoting Use of InStar

Hi InStar Users,


I hope this note finds you healthy and safe. We have a quick announcement.

The InStar Users Group signed agreements with Vertafore for the InStar Source Code. We are in the process of getting the program unlocked. We were starting to wonder if this day would ever come.  The day has arrived, now the work begins.

We will turn over the source code to EDI Concepts to begin programming updates for delivery to those agencies in the EDI Concepts support program. Please contact with any questions. (if you get a bounce on this email it is probably only 1 address as this is broadcast to the entire IUG board)  Individual board member contact information is below.

If you are not enrolled in the EDI Concepts Support Program contact EDI Concepts at or and they can get you enrolled.

We are very busy prioritizing updates and how to deliver them through EDI Concepts.  EDI Concepts is assessing the many updates they have identified though their own experience, through hearing from users and providing support to many agencies over the past 5 years.

What if you switched to another system?  You will always have InStar as an option and an option that cannot be sold to another vendor.  If you wish to change back now, you have the opportunity to convert back now.  EDI Concepts has numerous agencies making the change back now and will be sending more technical information in their newsletter.  To verify you are on the EDI Concepts mailing list please send email and request to be included on their mailing list.

We wish to sincerely thank everyone as without your support this result would not be possible.  It has been a long and difficult battle.  Your current board members ask for others that would like to serve, please contact one of the board members.  We need to fill the position of Secretary right away.  The IUG mission will be changing from securing source code to managing the software to the benefit of the users. 

Please contact any of our board members for further information.  You may also respond to this email and the entire board will receive your thoughts and questions.
