Metron, the global leader in capacity and performance management announced a record year for revenue, in its 25th year of trading.
Metron, boasting a client list of leading Fortune 500 and FTSE companies, delivers solutions in the form of software and services on a global basis.
David Kitley, Metron CFO said ‘Metron has celebrated its 25th anniversary by achieving enhanced revenues around its core global market. Japan, South Africa, and Europe all showed strong growth. Additionally, Metron’s wholly owned US subsidiary, Metron Athene Inc, posted new license revenues 40% higher than the previous fiscal year and continues to make a very positive contribution to group profits and cash flow.
Customer satisfaction and loyalty is reflected in a 13% increase in maintenance revenues.

The immense savings that clients are enjoying, through good capacity management, are even more valuable to them in these hard economic times.
