Studio 9 Support and Upgrade Agreement (SUA)

 Powersim Software provides Support and Upgrade Agreement (SUA) for the Studio business suite of products.

What is SUA?

A yearly Support and Upgrade Agreement (SUA) allows users of Studio to access new features without additional costs each time a feature pack is released. Non-SUA customers must wait for a new major release and then pay for an upgrade, to get access to the same features.

You never have to pay to upgrade your Powersim Studio to new versions and the new files are easily available for download over the Internet.

You will also get access to phone and e-mail support on any technical issue.
