MetraTech Corp., a leading provider of Web Services-based billing, customer self-care and partner management, has expanded into the Asia-Pacific region with the opening of a new office in Singapore. Located in the prestigious Suntec Tower 3, the new location will enable the company to better serve its growing roster of clients and partners in the Far East.
The companyâ€™s MetraNet solution, the first to bring Dynamic Business Modeling to the billing market, enables service providers to rapidly and cost effectively implement new business models. Both leading tier one operators such as Telus, and cutting edge companies such as Blyk, have deployed the solution in recent months. MetraNet is already generating significant interest in the highly competitive Asian region where time-to-market and Return-onâ€“Investment considerations are paramount.
Noted Vladimir Mitrasinovic, senior vice president, global sales and marketing, MetraTech: â€œthe opening of the companyâ€™s first office in the Far East represents another significant step in our development. It underlines that MetraNetâ€™s success in the global market is fuelling real, â€˜bricks and mortarâ€™ growth. In light of the opportunities and interest we are already experiencing in the region, we expect our presence in Singapore to make an immediate and real contribution to MetraTechâ€™s continuing success.â€
Added Scott Swartz, chief executive officer, MetraTech: â€œThe billing market is reaching an inflection point in which hard wired, third-generation billing systems architected around embedded â€˜best practiceâ€™ approaches are no longer viable. This inflection point is quickly becoming acute in the AsiaPacific region due to service providersâ€™ aggressive plans to deploy sophisticated, innovative and novel services and business models. The ability to dynamically reflect and automate, rather than laboriously translate, these business models has created a growing demand for the MetraNet platform.â€
