Metia Group wins Kony Alliance Partner of the Year Award for accelerating business growth and customer transformation

AUSTIN, Texas, September 9, 2019 – Metia Group has been selected as Alliance Partner of the Year by Kony Inc., the fast-growing U.S. #1 digital banking SaaS company.

Selected as Agency of Record by Kony in 2018, Metia used its Strategy QuickStart methodology and unique audience listening tools to help position and launch the Kony Digital Banking Experience (DBX) product into the banking arena. The runaway success of the launch has accelerated Kony’s growth. The company announced record breaking growth of 158 percent for Kony DBX in fiscal 2019.
