MetraTech Partners With MuleSoft to Automate Integrations for Metanga Customers 
Leading Commerce and SaaS Billing Provider Launches On-Demand
Connectivity to Leading Accounting and Financial Systems 
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/14/13 --  MetraTech Corp., the
leading provider of agreements-based billing(TM), commerce and
compensation solutions, today announced an agreement with MuleSoft,
provider of the world's most widely used integration platform, to
provide end-to-end solutions for connecting its Metanga SaaS billing
solution to SaaS and on-premise accounting applications. Powered by
CloudHub, the award-winning integration platform as a service (iPaaS)
from MuleSoft, the partnership enables Metanga to offer packaged
integration apps that automate business processes across leading
accounting applications, including Intacct, NetSuite, QuickBooks
Online, QuickBooks Desktop and Microsoft Dynamics GP (NASDAQ: MSFT).  
Metanga is a commerce and billing engine providing management of
customer enrollment, product catalogs, pricing, promotions,
invoicing, customer self-care and payment capture for cloud,
financial, communications and media, and transportation and utility
verticals. Metanga supports end-to-end revenue models that enable
billing functionality to extend into a CRM system like Salesforce.com
(NYSE: CRM) and integration with financial applications. These
integrations are supported through a robust set of SOAP and RESTful
APIs. It is designed to facilitate consumption-based billing for
online applications that require more than simplistic recurring
credit card billing. By coupling Metanga with leading financial
management applications, customers are provided with a sophisticated
billing capability to expand their service offerings.  
"Metanga customers are looking for the shortest path to monetization
for their cloud-based offerings," said Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of
MetraTech. "With the integration apps that we've built on CloudHub,
it's fast and easy for our customers to connect Metanga to leading
accounting and financial systems without the need for custom code.
Metanga customers can preserve their investment in financial
management applications, but are now empowered to take advantage of
sophisticated subscription and usage billin
g. The speed and agility
enabled by on-demand integrations, offers our customers increased
scalability and flexibility as their business grows."  
MetraTech's Metanga and MuleSoft offer five packaged integration
apps, one to each of the following accounting platforms: Quick Books
Online, Quickbooks Enterprise, Intacct, Netsuite and Microsoft
Dynamics GP. These applications address the following integration
scenarios most commonly faced by Metanga customers: 


 
--  Updating of balances for invoicing with complete payment
    synchronization between Metanga and accounting
--  Synchronization of products with accounting to allow revenue
    categorization
--  Automating the revenue reporting process by providing details of
    receivables and recognition codes
--  Supporting dunning processes by associating revenues with synchronized
    customer accounts

  
"We're pleased Metanga has joined our growing ecosystem of SaaS
providers that leverage CloudHub to offer seamless integration as a
part of their offering," said Chris Purpura, vice president and
general manager of CloudHub at MuleSoft. "Connecting customers
through custom point to point code doesn't scale or meet the
multi-tenancy requirements of SaaS. The CloudHub SaaS partnership
program is designed to help fast growth SaaS providers like
MetraTech's Metanga to automate business processes across
applications, removing the largest friction point for new customer
adoption."
