Billing Solution Provider to Monetize Nervogrid’s Innovative Desktop-As-A-Service Offerings

Cloud Computing Pioneer Chooses MetraTech’s MetraNet As Billing Platform

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) - Innovative billing software and customer care product provider MetraTech ( is celebrating a new client in the form of Nervogrid - an Information Technology (IT) service provider for the SME sector. Nervogrid has chosen the market leader's flagship product MetraNet as the billing solution for its Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offerings. MetraNet's unique dynamic business modelling-based building system will forge the way for Nervogrid to offer fully-managed, secure and performance-guaranteed IT services to businesses within a range of industries whilst employing 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 of Nervogrid. "Most of the billing solutions we looked at are very rigid and don't come close to providing the flexibility and scalability that our billing platform requires. MetraNet was the only settlement, customer care and billing system 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."

MetraTech's billing software will merge with Nervogrid's DaaS offerings and 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.

"It's exciting to see companies like Nervogrid successfully exploit the power of Cloud Computing," said MetraTech's Scott Swartz, Chief Executive Officer of the subscription and cloud billing expert. "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."
