Brighter Connections acquires Metis business management platform

The Brighter Connections Group has acquired the Metis cloud management business. Metis is a SaaS-based service management and professional services application developed in the UK.

Metis will now be added to Brighter Connections' client cloud services offering, which already includes CRM and analytics solutions. Metis says of its solution: “Metis brings together your timesheets, expenses, sales pipeline, job budgets and forecasts and resourcing. For example, our pipeline dashboard shows you whether you will hit your targets for the year.”

Brighter Connections Applications and Analytics is one of three business units that make up the Huddersfield, West Yorkshire-based Brighter Connections Group, and will integrate the Metis solution into its portfolio. The group offers IT infrastructure solutions - on premise and in the cloud - IT support services, and CRM and mobile workforce management solutions.

On the acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, Brighter Connections Group said: “The plan is to support the current user base and attract more users through the enhancement of the application with greater integration of analytics functionality, which is becoming increasingly important in days of greater self-sufficiency and lean and agile workplaces.”
