BOSTON, Massachusetts and LONDON, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- MetraTech Corp. (http://www.metratech.com/), the innovative charging, billing, settlement and customer care product provider has won the Best Overall prize at the prestigious World BSS Awards. The award was presented to two companies, MetraTech and Oracle Corporation at a ceremony during IIR's BSS Summit 2009 in Amsterdam from June 8-11, 2009.
The World BSS awards are widely regarded as the highest industry recognition of BSS excellence and are now in their 13th year. MetraTech was nominated as a finalist in three categories. In addition to its victory in the Best Overall category, its groundbreaking Software and Services deployment at Microsoft Online was voted runner up in the Best Billing/Charging Implementation Project. Chairman of the judges, Hugh Roberts, noted that this deployment was the equal to the category winner, but competition rules prevent two shared awards, therefore, MetraTech was given Runner Up in light of the company's victory in Best Overall.
In addressing MetraTech's victory in the main category, Roberts noted that Best Overall was given to the company doing most to innovate and to lead the industry through a period of transformation. He pointed out the large number of exciting deals the company had concluded in the past 12 months as bearing witness to how the market had come to understand MetraTech's vision. He also expressed the hope that its breakthrough year would see that vision cemented in 2010.
The victory further underlines why, recently, Ari Banerjee, vice president of next generation software systems at consultancy Yankee Group noted in an interview published in DestinationCRM Magazine on May 8, 2009, MetraNet has unique characteristics that you don't see with [competitors] today. He added, Others will eventually catch up, but what [MetraTech] has today is compelling. MetraTech can come in and work with existing billing platforms. The company's flexibility impresses me.
