Calero-MDSL Acquires MetaPort, a Leading Enterprise Network Mapping Software Company, Solidifying Its Commitment to Innovation

Company Continues to Redefine Technology Expense Management

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (PRWEB) April 20, 2021 — Calero-MDSL, an established pioneer in the high-growth Technology Expense Management (TEM) software space, announced today that it has acquired MetaPort, the leading telecom network mapping software company. MetaPort’s founder and CEO, Andres Aguire, will join the Calero-MDSL team as part of the transaction. Calero-MDSL prospects and customers will soon be able to turn network hardware and services data into powerful additional insights that will allow them to leverage new technologies like SD-WAN or reduce cost by identifying redundant or unused circuits.

“The MetaPort technology addresses a pain point we continue to hear from enterprises,” explains Scott Gilbert, CEO of Calero-MDSL. “As a result of this acquisition, our technology solution will now deliver CIO and CTO organizations a unique inventory visualization that provides a new level of visibility into their telecom estates. Mapping important cost and network details into a single pane of glass in near real time as networks evolve represents a true differentiator in our spaces. We are looking forward to working with Andres and his team to integrate this network mapping technology and deliver it to our global customers.”

For enterprise organizations, managing a sophisticated network spanning multiple global carriers can be as difficult as ensuring that they are only paying for what they need. MetaPort is a powerful tool that can be setup in minutes and presents network locations, voice and data circuits, and true carrier spend information in real- time through direct carrier integrations. The software is recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in Enterprise Networking for its ability to provide innovative networking analytics and automation tools that will help Infrastructure and Operations leaders improve the agility of the enterprise networks critical to digital business.

“I could not be more excited to work with Calero-MDSL as we make inventory accuracy more easily attainable,” said Andres Aguire. “Like Scott and the rest of the Calero-MDSL team, our sole focus is delivering software and service that solve the complex challenges facing enterprises today.”

“We have known Andres for many years and are excited to have him join the Calero-MDSL team”, said Steve Kaplan, Chairman of Calero-MDSL and a General Partner at Riverside Partners. “MetaPort technology, coupled with the powerful Calero-MDSL application, will change the way our customers manage their inventory lifecycle,” said Adam Hahn, Calero-MDSL Board Member and principal at Oak Hill Capital Partners. “MetaPort complements our portfolio of innovative products and will further cement our place as the innovative leader in the technology expense management software space.”
