Metron has recently strengthened its US and UK operations with the addition of new personnel in its Pre-Sales, Software Testing divisions and Software Development teams.
Andrew Smith, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Metron commented “We pride ourselves on leading the way in Capacity and Performance Management solutions, and that means having the right people working with our clients and developing our software. The Pre-Sales recruitment strengthens our US team further on the back of our rapid expansion.
“The Software Testing and Development aspects of the business need to grow in line with our sales growth” says Des Atkinson, Chief Technical Officer for Metron, “In addition to training our existing team in the agile methodology we now follow, we have brought in new staff to add to our capacity and expand the skill set available across the team.”
Metron announced recently that its half year profits were up on last year with a notable 100% increase in sales of its Professional Services. It appears that Metron’s consultants are in demand.
“We know that our expertise in the area of Capacity Management is second to none. We literally wrote the book, having co-written and advised on the original Capacity Management processes and guidelines contained within the UK Office of Government Computing Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and we continue to be involved in the ongoing formulation of the latest versions.” added Andrew Smith, Metron’s CSMO.
Metron recently spoke at The Green It Expo in London and its staff are frequently called on to give talks and papers across the globe.
