Since launching the MARTA NOWaccount® Revenue Accelerator Program earlier this year, NOW Corp has helped small and diverse suppliers take advantage of the tremendous growth opportunities available with the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA), the ninth largest transit system in the country. MARTA is investing more than $470 million in capital expenditures, in addition to the $100 million it spends annually with suppliers on operations, and it is committed to increasing its expenditure with small and diverse-owned businesses.
Since the initial roll out of the program in February with a limited number of small and diverse suppliers, the MARTA NOWaccount program already is proving successful. Within months of enrolling in NOWaccount, Sheila Jordan, CEO of Knowledge Architects, tripled her contract with the transit authority – a great win for her business, but one that would require her to fund a million dollar project.
“I didn’t even have to blink,” said Jordan, who is planning to launch a new product offering this fall with transit authorities across the country. “We never could have done that without NOWaccount. It’s a lifesaver!”
