SAN FRANCISCO, CA and CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 10/28/08 -- Model Metrics, a leading technology and service provider in the Software-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service industries, today announced it has raised $2.5 million in Series A financing from private investors. This first round of funding will be used to accelerate the development and launch of new mobile solutions for the iPhone and drive growth of core application development and implementation services for salesforce.com's Salesforce CRM applications and Force.com Platform.
Model Metrics builds custom applications utilizing cloud computing to deliver on-demand technology solutions to midsize and Fortune 1000 companies.

"Their work on the iPhone and partnership with salesforce.com demonstrates their level of talent and creativity. Raising a significant round of funding in this economic climate reinforces their potential. I'm looking forward to what Model Metrics will bring next to the market."
Model Metrics earned attention earlier this year by enabling users of the iPhone to leverage salesforce.com's Salesforce CRM applications and Force.com platform on the mobile device, and won awards for its innovative delivery of offline functionality on Salesforce. Its products include the PerfectCall productivity suite for contact centers and Expense2GO for iPhone, which lets users manage business expenses from their iPhone and synchronizes with online expense management in Salesforce.
Model Metrics also recently announced that it became one of only three salesforce.com partners authorized to deliver Salesforce CRM training in North America. Currently Model Metrics is the sole authorized trainer in Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit, Kansas City, and Indianapolis.
