Fort Worth, TX, October 21, 2008 (PRNewswire)– Now Solutions, Inc. (Now Solutions) is pleased to announce that it has won the bid to provide its proprietary emPath® 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® 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® in the Software-as-a-Service model in Canada. Now Solutions’ emPath® 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® 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® in the robust, Web-based SaaS solution. Because of the inherent flexibility of emPath®, 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® provides an even more cost-effective solution that offers the same powerful HRIS and Payroll features of emPath® coupled with complete data infrastructure, IT support, and a fully-serviced and integrated hosted solution.
