Nighthawk to ship in 2007
Now Software is expected to release its 'Nighthawk' cross-platform group calendar and contact management software later this year, and announced the addition of three new employees to its development and operations departments to help realize that goal. "With NightHawk, we're not only building a completely new software platform, we're also improving the way we develop software, and how we function as a company," said Now Software president John Wallace. The Nighthawk calendar & contact module will be available for $150 per license, and owners of Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.0 and later will be able to upgrade for $70 per license when Nighthawk ships.
The software codenamed Nighthawk, which was previewed at Macworld earlier this year, is designed as an integrated application that builds upon the calendar and contact management functionality provided by Now Software's Now UP-to-Date & Contact software. The company claims the new software merges the functionality of calendar and contact management into one integrated, cross-platform application with server access for groups and administration.
