NOW Corporation will team up with IBM to provide integrated communication and collaboration solutions for enterprises and government agencies and drive productivity among geographically dispersed teams.
“By partnering with IBM, we can now offer a unified collaboration platform for our clients. This allows businesses with distributed workforce to embrace a new way to work that improves personal productivity and team collaboration,” said Kristian Pura, Head of Enterprise Marketing at NOW.
NOW offers IBM Collaboration Solutions software licensing, technical maintenance and support, user-training services, applications development to a host of companies and is an IBM Premier Business Partner. NOW was named IBM’s Top Business Partner of the Year for IBM Collaboration Solutions in the Philippines in 2014 and 2015.
“We are helping our clients implement IBM Verse, a cloud business email hosting platform and messaging software. It allows our clients to not just use traditional emails but to also host audio and video conferences, make information and background about the people and companies within the email network more accessible. Most importantly, it also serves as a social networking platform since Verse is tightly integrated to IBM Connections, a collaboration platform for businesses,” said Maneth Libid, Managing Director of NOW’s software collaboration group.
Libid says the partnership with IBM gives them the capability to offer customers an integrated business mail & collaboration platform that integrates email, chat, meetings, content and social networking on a single cloud platform.
IBM Verse is available on the cloud and as an on-premise solution.
NOW works with several companies and government agencies to deliver IT software solutions and broadband services. Some of NOW’s clients are BDO, Chinabank, Phinma Properties, Development Bank of the Philippines, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, Meralco and SM Retail.
