MetraTech Corp., the innovative charging, billing, settlement and customer care product provider, today announced that Nervogrid, an Information Technology (IT) service provider for the SME sector, has chosen MetraNet as the billing, settlement and customer care solution for its Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offerings. MetraNet’s unique dynamic business modeling-based functionality will enable Nervogrid to offer fully managed, secure and performance-guaranteed IT services to businesses within the education, financial services, legal and manufacturing/logistics industries with a pay-as-you go model.
“We need to be able to quickly syndicate a wide variety of IT services from a diverse set of vendors and provide our clients a high level of automation in a cost-efficient, pay-as-you-go model,” said Aleksi Partanen, chief executive officer, Nervogrid. “Most of the billing systems we looked at are very rigid and don’t come close to providing the flexibility and scalability that our platform requires. MetraNet was the only billing, settlement and customer care product that could map into our SOA Service Delivery Platform and dynamically deliver the change management necessary to service our clients both today and over time.”
Nervogrid’s DaaS offerings allow businesses to focus on their core expertise and use the ‘cloud’ as a virtual IT infrastructure. Clients can outsource the management of business applications, desktop infrastructure services and datacenter services to Nervogrid. All these IT services are centrally produced and managed in Nervogrid’s datacenters and delivered to customers over a network. Services are subscription-based and clients only pay for what they use, whether it is by the number of users, worksites or gigabytes. Services are fully scalable from a single user to multi-site environment with hundreds of users.
“It’s exciting to see companies like Nervogrid successfully exploit the power of Cloud Computing,” said Scott Swartz, chief executive officer, MetraTech Corp. “The unparalleled flexibility and elasticity of MetraTech’s dynamic business modeling approach is a perfect fit for Nervogrid and other businesses that want to create Cloud Computing and Software-as-a-Service offerings. We are looking forward to working with the Nervogrid team to make their innovative DaaS IT services highly successful.”
