Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from MetaSolv Software, Inc.

    PLANO, Texas, April 11 /PRNewswire/ --
 MetaSolv Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: MSLV), the leading provider of order
 management and service fulfillment solutions to next-generation communications
 providers, today announced the general availability of MetaSolv Solution
 5.0(TM) (M/5(TM)), the newest version of its industry-leading operations
 support system (OSS) solution.  Significant new functionality in M/5 will
 enable international and multinational providers to more efficiently operate
 and manage their networks as they move to adopt next-generation technologies.
     "The launch of MetaSolv Solution 5.0 is an important step forward in
 delivering a robust OSS solution that addresses the evolving needs of
 multinational service providers," said Curtis Holmes, president and chief
 operating officer, MetaSolv.  "We worked with our current international
 customer base to develop this release based on needs and requirements drawn
 from real world experience with our product.  Our open, flexible solution
 helps customers reduce costs and improve overall efficiency wherever they
 choose to do business."
 
     Enhancement highlights:
     To support the global marketplace, MetaSolv Solution 5.0 extends
 functionality to allow flexibility for service providers operating in diverse
 regulatory, logistical, and geographic environments.  No longer limited to the
 established, standardized Common Language(TM) system used in North America,
 M/5 enables providers to flexibly define how equipment, locations, and other
 critical network and service information will be entered into their OSS.
 Examples of additional new functionality include support for multiple
 currencies and languages, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) based date and time
 formats, and customized telephone numbering and other addressing formats.
     Another important advancement addresses next-generation providers'
 critical need for real time inventory information to enable faster and more
 accurate provisioning.  M/5 includes an open, bi-directional inventory and
 capacity management interface that enables providers to synchronize their
 physical network with their logical database.  MetaSolv 5.0 also includes
 additional enhancements that further strengthen current support for
 sophisticated IP address management for service providers offering Internet-
 based products and services.
     As part of efforts to offer MetaSolv solutions to providers around the
 globe, M/5 will be available beginning next month in Spanish and Brazilian
 Portuguese.  GVT, a leading competitive provider in Brazil, conducted beta
 testing of MetaSolv Solution 5.0.
     "At GVT, we recently completed a large-scale implementation, integrating
 17 distinct systems, with MetaSolv Solution as the cornerstone of our OSS.
 The functionality in the 5.0 version, including localization in Portuguese,
 confirms MetaSolv's commitment to offering a truly global solution that will
 enhance our future ability to stay on the leading edge in ordering and
 provisioning of communications services," said Ruy Shiozawa, vice president,
 information technology, GVT.
     "Adopting next-generation technologies is an important trend, but new
 technology does not change business fundamentals for the global communications
 industry.  Reducing costs, delivering quality products and service, and faster
 time to market remain the keys to success.  Mission critical solutions, like
 the MetaSolv Solution -- with its new functionality to better meet global
 providers' needs -- will be necessary as competitive markets continue to
 evolve," said Rob Rich, executive vice president, The Yankee Group.
