OREM, Utah-July 2, 2009--AtTask, the definitive solution enabling organizations to collaborate and accomplish the work most essential to the enterprise, is the Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) solution for United Kingdom-based Netcel, for prioritizing initiatives and strategic planning.

Netcel is one of the leading providers of Web content management systems in the U.K. and turned to AtTask to provide a solution to a disjointed management process. “Our old system was not collaborative,” said Tim Parfitt, a Web Developer at Netcel. “We were often in the dark about a project’s progress, and if there was a problem, we didn’t find out until it was too late to do anything about it. That is why AtTask was so appealing to us.”

“The visibility, ease of reporting and configurable reports really met our needs,” he continued. “As a manager, I could see exactly what was being accomplished by team members in real time. As a result, I could identify any obstacles or what projects my team should tackle first. AtTask makes it incredibly easy to keep the big picture in mind on every project.”

AtTask gives decision-makers access to all the information needed to ensure a project’s success. With new features like the Optimizer and Best-Fit capacity planning, managers can find the right mix of projects by helping them identify risk tolerance, rank the importance of return, low cost, and alignment. In addition, new portfolio scorecards allow for easy evaluation of completed projects.

“For a company on the leading edge of technology and Web development, it was important for Netcel to find a PPM solution that could grow with them,” said Scott Johnson, CEO of AtTask. “It is our goal to provide companies like Netcel a formalized process, and provide support if needed. Our professional services include online support, forums, phone coaching, Boot Camp, and even onsite training. We value our customers, and are dedicated to helping them succeed.”

Before purchasing AtTask, Netcel attended Boot Camp, a two-day training seminar to help teams implement the solution as easily and quickly as possible. “Boot Camp was the final step for us in choosing AtTask,” Parfitt said. “Meeting others who were using AtTask was extremely helpful. We were able to compare notes, and were reassured we had made the right choice.”

“We are certain AtTask will help us not only save money,” Parfitt said. “But reduce overruns, provide more accurate billing, resolve issues quickly, increase collaboration and teamwork, get things right the first time and improve our overall process.”
