MetraTech 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.
