Nov 15, 2019News

The presentation of the 2019 Romanian OSPAs took place on Friday 15thNovember at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel and we are delighted to announce the winners.

OSPA winners were selected by an esteemed panel of industry figures who judged entries using the same criteria which is applied across the world.  Each winner demonstrated that they have performed at an exceptional level and has shown their commitment and outstanding performance within the security sector.

Professor Martin Gill, founder of the OSPAs said:

“The security sector has for too long been under the radar. Here the Romanian security sector has shown why this is unnecessary; there are some outstanding individuals, teams, initiatives and companies being recognised  as nominees for an OSPA.  They collectively shine a spotlight on the best from the security sector globally and in Romania in particular.”

“First of all, I would like to personally congratulate all the finalists and our competitors in OSPA for their projects, as well as and the coordinators for a great gala event.
I know everybody is proud of their work and they are supposed to be. As for our part, even if we knew we have a powerful software, it is nice to hear good things and appreciation from others. So, I like to thank the jury and the sponsors of this event for choosing Metrici as top company in a security category. It was already a great joy to be nominated as top three, but I can not emphasize how grateful we are for being voted number one on OSPA. To be honest the award comes as a gift after so many years of constant improvement and hard work, and the Metrici team would like to thank everybody involved for this award. We are truly obliged for this great honor and recognition given by independent experts. Being honest, the journey to this point was not easy and the credit is not entirely ours. Metrici grew with the help of our partners, distributors and integrators and thanks to their constant feedback and demands. Transforming the ideas into code and later in a overall solution was hard work and meant dealing with various challenges on the way. But we are not complaining, as our partners satisfaction with a done project is a great reward. We overcame every problem to deliver a software solution which is so versatile that can be used from managing small businesses to entire smart cities. I would like to further show our gratitude to the jury, which understood that technology is changing our way of thinking security, administration, integration and management. It is our common effort to make people understand that Artificial Intelligence can bring good things. Finally this award motivates us to keep improving to prove Metrici fully deserved it.”
