OREM, Utah--April 13, 2009--GE Healthcare PET Radiopharmacy, a leading provider of transformational medical technologies and professional consulting services, chose AtTask, the world’s most popular project and portfolio management (PPM) solution, to enable visibility and collaboration among project teams working on GE installations in several different countries across the globe.

“Our biggest challenge was making sure that project managers around the world had access to the same information at the same time,” says Marcia Taylor, PET Radiopharmacy Program Leader, Edison Engineering Development Program. “We wanted to give our project managers visibility into all of our current projects and resource needs, regardless of where they were in the world. We evaluated several different options, AtTask was the best solution to meet our needs.”

“Customers like GE Healthcare, with offices all over the world, need a PPM solution that is location, language, and platform neutral,” says Scott Johnson, CEO of AtTask. “AtTask is the only PPM software available in German, French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and English. With sales and service offices in the U.K., China, Japan, and across the U.S., AtTask is perfect for organizations who have project teams scattered across the globe.”

GE Healthcare’s PET Radiopharmacy Team uses AtTask to more efficiently track the installation of sophisticated and complex medical technologies that enable project managers to access the real-time information necessary to provide clinical and research readiopharmacies with complete equipment and service solutions. GE Healthcare’s goal for PET Readiopharmacy: The complex, simplified.

“We look to AtTask to help our Radiopharmacy service teams be more productive,” says Taylor. “Ultimately, we believe AtTask will help us significantly reduce the time it takes for an equipment installation.”
