“Mxi has created a differentiated product that supports MRO service providers in maintaining a customer-centric focus and Flightstar is the perfect complement to this vision,” says Dave Seibel, Chairman and CEO, Mxi Technologies. “With maintenance outsourcing shifting to place a higher value on quality and consistency, the business benefits afforded by the Maintenix MRO Edition is enabling our customers to more confidently and profitably compete on a local and global scale.”
