LAFAYETTE, CALIFORNIA , July 15, 2009 – TechExcel, Inc., a leading provider of Application Lifecycle Management software, today announced the general availability of DevSuite 8.0.

From requirements to project planning, work item tracking to QA testing, DevSuite allows team to follow configurable, integrated processes based on best practices. DevSuite also enables software development organizations, regardless of size, to manage globally distributed development teams efficiently and effectively. Version 8.0 introduces many new and enhanced features, including integrated support for Unicode characters, definable user interface settings for multi-lingual projects, and a new dashboard engine called MyWork.
