Product Lifecycle Support

As products evolve and mature, the balance shifts towards product lifecycle management (PLM). To remain competitive and for continuous value creation, product companies need to sustain their products by releasing patch updates, providing regular upgrades, feature enhancements and customer support at all levels; thereby maintaining satisfaction levels. At the same time, they need to bring out new versions of the products and also ensure that these inter-operate with existing products. All this puts a strain on the existing product development resources, which need to focus on new product development.

With its expertise in both software and hardware engineering, Mistral offers proven and robust product lifecycle support services, thereby helping companies focus their resources on new product development. Mistral’s product lifecycle support services include:
