MetraTech Empowers Microsoft's Office Live Meeting with Dynamic Solution for Service Creation, Billing and Partner Management

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 5, 2005--MetraTech announced today that Microsoft Office Live Meeting has successfully deployed the MetraNet billing solution. The solution enables Live Meeting to quickly create and deploy innovative services that increase revenues and market share, all at a lower total cost of ownership.

This successful implementation is the combination of MetraTech's MetraNet product, Microsoft's .NET technologies and the Microsoft Real-Time Collaboration Business Unit. Microsoft is now empowered in all aspects of the MetraNet platform and is not dependent on MetraTech's or a third party's professional services for future configurations, upgrades or custom development.

"In the burgeoning Web conferencing space, our ability to deliver high quality services that meet the diverse needs of our customers is key to our success," said Jawaid Ekram, general manager of services for Microsoft's Real-Time Collaboration Business Unit. "MetraNet has helped us launch innovative new services and create tailored offerings for our enterprise customers and resellers while reducing operational costs."

"Microsoft has made an aggressive push in the real-time collaboration and communications space. MetraNet provides Microsoft Office Live Meeting with a billing and partner management solution that helps meet scalability requirements while also empowering Microsoft to be self-sufficient. We're proud that Microsoft chose MetraNet to meet these needs," said Scott Swartz, MetraTech president and CEO.
