System Support Contracts (SSC)
In order to meet your needs for test-system support during important project critical periods such as the introduction of a new product or the addition of new system features to an existing solution, we offer a range of off the shelf system support contracts designed to meet your specific test system support requirements. Our SSC packages provide you with the confidence that you will have the right engineering expertise at hand when you need it most. Purchasing one of our system support contracts gives you the peace of mind that the support is there when your engineering teams need it, with no need to raise additional purchase orders that can often take time to organize and get signed off.
Our experienced engineering team can assist with diagnosing and troubleshooting system issues, integration of new system features, and providing additional software development as your needs develop. By choosing one of our SSC packages, you get a block of support hours and a guaranteed initial response time to ensure you get the support you need. Each SSC option includes on-site support time so that our engineers can ensure that the modifications and updates carried out are operating correctly. Preventative System Maintenance (PMC) can be provided within the contract. Components used for system maintenance will be converted to hours and deducted from the total hours included in the contract.

Preventative Maintenance Contracts (PMC)
We offer a preventative maintenance option for our existing customers. We perform a "health check" on your systems on a six month and annual basis to ensure that it is running smoothly and will continue to do so. Preventative maintenance is usually scheduled to fit around your production needs.
Obsolescence is a major problem in the design and through life support of equipment. Although appropriate checks are made in the design process it is necessary to carry out annual investigation and report to enable equivalent replacements, ‘end of life’ purchases, or propose design modifications to extend the useful life of the system.
We are also able to maintain drawing packages and use effective change control methods to ensure the build status of systems in the field are known. Our support activities also extend to the inclusion of existing legacy equipment. We are able to provide reverse engineering services, generate support documentation, review and provide CE marking for these equipments.
