Fort Worth, TX, December 11, 2008 (PRNewswire)– Building on 35 years of leadership in the Payroll and Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) marketplace, NOW Solutions, Inc. (Now Solutions) announced today another significant advancement in its technology. NOW Solutions’ completely web-based solution, emPath®, was an early adopter of .net and ASP.net platforms, and emPath® has recently been enhanced to support Web Services.
The new Web Services feature for emPath® allows any application to have on-demand access to all of emPath's® built-in business rules, features and functionality. This enhancement expands the functionality of emPath® and opens our technology to effectively allow any application, on any platform, to fully integrate with this Web-based HRMS Solution. Using the new Web Services feature, an application can instantly call, execute, validate, update, and process any or all of emPath's® payroll and HR functions and features -- and at a substantially reduced cost. Users will benefit from significant incremental cost savings, both in installation and ongoing maintenance.
Marianne Franklin, President and CEO, stated: “ ‘On-demand’ access to this technology is an extraordinary step for NOW Solutions. It permits our best-of-breed HR and Payroll solution to be truly integrated with any application. For example, emPath could be accessed and updated by any of our customers’ Financial Solution, Student Information System, Patient Care System, Manufacturing Solution or other ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) applications. This enhancement in our technology effectively eliminates the issue surrounding a company wanting a “one-brand” ERP solution. Our customers in Manufacturing, Health, Education, Banking and other industries can now easily exchange data and fully access product functionality from any brand of solution. In this challenging economic time, it is tempting for a Company to use the HR and Payroll solution bundled with its ERP offering. The ability to have emPath seamlessly integrate eases the burden and virtually eliminates the cost of exchanging data between one solution and another.”
Now Solutions’ continued success can be attributed to the robust, Web-based features and flexibility of its products. emPath® is an integrated HR payroll solution that provides a low total cost of ownership and a high return on investment while enabling users to improve decision-making capabilities.
