NOW Solutions Wins Bid to Provide emPath(R) HR & Payroll Software-as-a-Service Solution to Daishowa Marubeni International Ltd., Peace River Pulp Division, in Canada



    FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 21 /CNW/ -- Now Solutions, Inc. (Now Solutions)
is pleased to announce that it has won the bid to provide its proprietary
emPath(R) human resources and payroll management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
solution to Daishowa-Marubeni International Ltd., Peace River Pulp Division, a
pulp and paper manufacturer based in Canada. emPath(R) is an integrated Human
Resources Management System (HRMS) and payroll solution that provides a low
total cost of ownership and a high return on investment while enabling users
to improve management of personnel and decision-making capabilities.
    Commenting on this contract award, Marianne Franklin, President and CEO
of Now Solutions stated, "We faced different competition than in our
traditional license model.  Consequently, this is a terrific win for Now
Solutions, as Daishowa Marubeni represents our first client for emPath(R) in
the Software-as-a-Service model in Canada.   Now Solutions' emPath(R)
Software-as-a-Service offers clients the convenience of a maintenance-free
human resources and payroll management solution that you would normally expect
with an outsourced provider but with the added flexibility, integration and
control more typical with in-house software.  With this offering, we have
significantly expanded our emPath(R) marketing opportunities."
    Now Solutions is one of the few companies certified by the Canadian
Privacy Institute under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic
Documents Act (PIPEDA).  To be certified, both the software and the company
must comply with PIPEDA.
    Now Solutions' contract award can be attributed to the flexibility and
rich functionality of emPath(R) in the robust, Web-based SaaS solution.
Because of the inherent flexibility of emPath(R), Now Solutions can deliver an
extremely sophisticated payroll and human resource management solution on a
SaaS platform in a more cost-effective manner than other HRMS providers.  The
SaaS version of emPath(R) provides an even more cost-effective solution that
offers the same powerful HRIS and Payroll features of emPath(R) coupled with
complete data infrastructure, IT support, and a fully-serviced and integrated
hosted solution.
