THE Supreme Court (SC) has given Now Corp. the go-signal to implement the P57.5-million Judiciary Email System project.

In a disclosure to the stock exchange, Now Corp. said it received the notice to proceed from the Supreme Court to install the e-mail system, after the contract was signed by both parties.

“The Project, with a contract price of P57,528,888.00, covers the installation of a private cloud-based, on-premise e-mail and collaboration system that will set up an initial 7,000 e-mail accounts for the judiciary,” the listed information technology firm said.

The company is undertaking the project with joint venture partner Accent Micro Technologies, Inc., using IBM’s Collaboration Solution portfolio.

Now Corp.’s five-year plan is anchored on a build-operate-transfer project for enterprises. Under this, enterprise clients will be provided with their own private communications network that is independent of public telcos, equipped with broadband connectivity, along with a cyber security plan and a collaboration software system.

Apart from IT, Now is also engaged in providing products and services related to media and telecommunications.
