OREM, Utah––September 29, 2008 – AtTask, the leading provider of project and portfolio management (PPM) software, announced today that it has been named to the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing private companies in the United States.

The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine’s tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition.”
Several factors contribute to AtTask’s rapid growth.
