OREM, Utah – December 6, 2006 — AtTask, Inc. today announced the availability of AtTask version 4 release 3, which sets a new standard for Web–based applications, from its customizable presentation and workflow, to its ability to optimize personal productivity and enhance project success. AtTask v4 r3 includes the latest AJAX technologies to enhance usability and flexibility, as well as expanded collaboration and accountability features, which help produce better business results. AtTask is browser, database and platform independent, providing broad access for users across the enterprise and better integration with disparate data sources. The completely Web–based application is available as software as a service (SaaS) or as a self–hosted enterprise solution.

In addition to incorporating AJAX for better performance and a more intuitive interface, AtTask v4 r3 includes the following major updates:

  • AtTask Reporting Framework: Define charts; complete custom rollups; and get instant access to graphs, with supporting aggregate and detailed information all with the click of a mouse.
  • Interactive Gantt Charts: Manage projects by editing tasks, resources, priorities, constraints process flows, and then instantly see the impact of the changes within the project details.
  • Trend Analysis Tools: Track the progress and health of any project by using baseline analysis tools and process improvement worksheets.
  • Favorites: Instantly hot–link to any project, task, report or issue in AtTask.

"What excites me about the latest release of AtTask is its 'cool' factor, from its user–friendly interface to its desktop application–like responsiveness," said Scott Johnson, chief executive officer of AtTask, Inc. "With the interface, we have removed much of the complexity and technical stereotypes typically associated with project management, making PPM approachable to everyone within the organization. You really must see it to believe it. By using Web 2.0 technologies, such as AJAX, AtTask has taken a leadership position in Web application UI performance and usability. The benefit to our customers is AtTask's high user adoption will lead to greater returns on process improvement and project management, as well as improve the bottom line."

According to Jeffrey M. Kaplan, managing director of THINKstrategies, "One of the most important and often overlooked benefits of today's SaaS solutions is the real–time, multi–user interface and dynamic processing that web–based applications can provide. On–demand project and portfolio management solutions, like that offered by AtTask, enable organizations to fully leverage the power of SaaS to meet their business objectives."
