OREM, Utah – (MARKET WIRE) – April 16, 2007 — AtTask is now the first on-demand project management solution to release a SOAP API suite complete with Software Development Kit (SDK) (www.attask.com/developer) and a ready-made API for Microsoft Outlook. This allows organizations to bridge a gap when relying on two software applications – each with critical functionality, running independent of each other. Organizations using Outlook can now update assigned tasks and jump to projects in AtTask from within Outlook. The SDK seamlessly places business intelligence in the hands of any company running AtTask Enterprise edition project management software. APIs for popular desktop and web-based applications such as QuickBooks and Salesforce.com are slated for later this year.
"Our customers asked us how to combine the power of AtTask with their mission-critical applications; the SDK is the answer," said Scott Johnson, CEO of AtTask. "AtTask has always been the leader in terms of ease of use – and once again, visibility productivity just got easier," he stated.
The APIs allow the entire robust functionality of AtTask to be available via remote calls. The SaaS (Software as a Service) solution, already recognized as an industry leader for its progressive approach to business process improvement and team-based collaboration, now offers the power of integration with the applications driving today’s business.
"AtTask has always been customer-centric," said AtTask CTO Nate Bowler. "We've been integrating AtTask with a wide variety of applications in numerous industry sectors on a custom basis for years. Now, with our customer base growing exponentially, we want to make that level of service available to each and every customer," he concluded.
