OREM, Utah—January 26, 2010—AtTask (www.attask.com) finished 2009 with the strongest quarter in the company’s history, fueled by a focus on providing business leaders with the means to ensure executive strategies become the goals of management and the work of project teams.
“The need to identify a new model for managing work is changing the way business leaders look at project management,” said Scott Johnson, CEO. “Top-down management focuses on resource utilization, but fails to gather ground-up intelligence. AtTask is a solution that engages the workforce, allowing information to seamlessly flow up to executives and across departments. This functionality is the force behind our accelerated growth.”
In today’s business climate, organizations need to react quickly to changing markets, which makes accurate and timely executive visibility into every initiative critical for validating that corporate strategy is executed upon. AtTask’s unique solution approach is the reason more than 100 organizations around the world, including Trek Bicycle, The Girl Scouts of America, and The Marketing Store, chose AtTask as their work management solution in Q4 2009
Enabling organizations to approach the project management process with a holistic top-down, bottom-up, and cross-functional solution allows customers to achieve complete visibility, accountability, and operational effectiveness. The company’s commitment to serving the needs of their customer base is further evidenced by steadily rising Q4 2009 renewal and up-sell rates, with customers including Boston Scientific, Buckman Labs, and GE Healthcare either renewing or increasing their commitment to AtTask project management software.
The need to find a better way to get work done is changing the way business leaders look at project visibility and accountability. Because organizations—including those beyond traditional IT—need to react quickly to changing markets, executive visibility into every initiative is critical for validating that corporate strategy is executed in the projects undertaken by the workforce.
“Our primary objective is to determine which projects are aligned with corporate business goals and will deliver the greatest business value,” said Paul McGriff, Manager of Governance and Administration for Buckman Labs. “AtTask is a valuable part of our strategic process that aligns every project with business objectives, which is why we are extending our relationship with AtTask by not one, but three years. AtTask continues to provide a significant cost benefit, and the licensing options are a tremendous value.”
