MGI 360 Ratings: Billing Platform in Billing Management MAY 2 2017

MGI 360 Logo RATING UPDATE : We are upgrading the MGI360 Rating of Billing Platform from 51 to 54 and changing the outlook to Positive from Neutral.
OPINION: The improved rating reflects steady incremental progress in the product, competitive wins and production roll-outs, addition of management, high customer retention and satisfaction, better execution and more mature internal processes. We have had an opportunity to interview a number of actual and prospective clients describing a solution that is quick to implement, yet sophisticated enough for most complex tasks. Channel score is flat as the partner ecosystem and direct sales are going through a build-out. The finance score remains unchanged as the company continues to grow at 65%+ per year at break-even performance. BP functional capabilities are ahead of its product packaging. The company has been successful in penetrating a number of high profile accounts with a complex mix of requirements. 
USE CASE: The company solutions have a particular sweet spot in monetizing complex hybrid (physical and digital) assets such as in ports, logistics, transport and energy among others.

MGI 360 Ratings is a comprehensive system for evaluating technology companies. IT organizations use MGI 360 to track suppliers, assess purchasing risks and identify promising new vendors. Vendors utilize MGI 360 to track their markets and evaluate partners. Institutional Investors use MGI 360 for independent assessment of tech companies. MGI 360 ratings help lower costs, save time, reduce risks, and identify new opportunities. The MGI 360 ratings are on a scale from 0 to 100 and reflect company opinions of MGI analysts in five key areas on a scale of 0 to 20:
  • PRODUCT: How strong is the product competitive position?
  • MANAGEMENT: How competent and experienced is the management team?
  • CHANNELS: Does the company have a sales capability and channels needed to bring products to market?
  • STRATEGY: Does the company have a realistic view of the opportunity and a compelling strategy for success?

Each of these key criteria is subdivided into numerous sub-categories. In total, over 149 criteria are combined to generate an MGI 360 rating in each specific market space. Companies can have one or more MGI 360 rating - one for each market. MGI 360 ratings are revised as important developments occur.
