San Francisco, CA, June 3, 2008 – Openet, the leading provider of Transactional Intelligence solutions for the world’s largest and most innovative service providers, was recently announced as a recipient of the Red Herring 100 North America, an award given to the top 100 private technology companies based in the region.

"The companies on this year's list are proof that creative ideas continue to find the funding that turns them into promising businesses."
Red Herring’s annual lists of top private companies are an important part of the company’s tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs.
