Now Corp uses IBM collaboration solutions

NOW Corporation announced it will use IBM Collaboration Solutions portfolio to become the country’s premier one-stop-shop IT and broadband services provider for enterprises and government agencies looking for safe, secure, top-of-the-line software solutions bundled with NOW Corporation’s broadband connectivity.

Workforce productivity, among the top challenges for organizations today, is one such area where NOW is looking to provide their integrated communication and collaboration solutions. According to TechAisle Asia-Pacific Mid-market Insights 2017 report, as the size of a business increases, companies also see an increase in the use of mobile and collaboration solutions that develop cohesiveness among geographically dispersed teams. With the partnership of IBM, NOW can help companies support their employees remotely on a secure platform and drive productivity improvement.

“As an integrated solutions company, NOW Corp. deploys telecom pipes, provides solutions to operational problems that encompass information technology, software systems and maintenance, network connectivity and cybersecurity to select blue chip and fast rising companies,” said Kristian Pura, Head of Enterprise Marketing at NOW. “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”

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. “Our clients are demanding more value and insights from mailing and collaboration tools. Our partnership with IBM gives us the capability to offer our customers an integrated business mail & collaboration platform that integrates email, chat, meetings, content and social networking on a single cloud platform to reduce clutter and focus on what is most important. 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 the country’s biggest companies such as BDO, Chinabank, Phinma Properties, Development Bank of the Philippines, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, Meralco and SM Retail count on NOW to provide their IT software solutions. NOW believes that as an integrated communications and collaboration solutions provider, NOW is well placed to enable companies for social business and improve workforce experience.
