Now Software Inc has extended it time and contact management software, Now Up-to-date, to run under Windows. The Portland, Oregon-based company said the move would expand its corporate customer base. Now Software sells mainly to large corporates that use a mixed environment of Macintosh and Windows personal computers and therefore need software than will run under both operating systems. Now Up-to-Date includes QuickAccess Manager, a permanent on-screen toolbar that gives users access to schedules, name and numbers, and additional diary dates that when entered in the QuickPad automatically appear under the appropriate date. The company said that its main rival was Microsoft Corp’s Schedule Plus, which is given away with Microsoft Office. Now said that it had the edge over Schedule Plus because Now Up-to-date ran under more operating systems. It claims to be compatible with Macintosh, Windows 3.1 and Windows95. Now said it is currently working on expanding its software so it can be accessed by remote users with Personal Digital Assistants and pagers. It is also looking at making the software available on corporate Web servers so that companies can offer this information as part of their Web sites. The single-user version costs #100 and will be available this week. The workgroup edition for five users will costs #475, a 10-user version will costs #875 and a 50-user version will cost #3,900. Workgroup editions will be shipping next month.
