OREM, Utah--March 23, 2009--AtTask, the world’s most popular project and portfolio management (PPM) solution, invites customers to gather in Salt Lake City to learn latest trends, best practices, and techniques from Audrey Apfel, Managing VP and Gartner Fellow, Harvey Levine, world recognized project management expert, author, and consultant, and AtTask customers Fiserv, Penson, Rawlings, SUNY and others.

“We are facing the most dynamic environment for business in history,” says Harvey Levine, presenter at the conference. “In these times, PPM is essential--even lifesaving for a business. Attendees to AtTask’s User Conference will be exposed to effective PPM methodologies that can reduce the damage caused by the current economic upheaval and help them take advantage of significant opportunities in today’s economy.”

“One of the biggest challenges for business leaders in today’s economy is making certain they can maximize their resources and drive high-performance projects despite shrinking budgets,” says Scott Johnson, CEO of Attask. “Project management experts and industry-leading organizations from around the world will discuss AtTask’s PPM solution and how to manage business-critical projects, reduce costs, and increase productivity across the enterprise--regardless of economic conditions.”

WolfNet Tech was looking for a PPM solution that would help them implement project management best practices and facilitate easy adoption into their workflow. Ease-of-use was an important criterion for WolfNet, and AtTask’s user interface was the primary reason they chose the PPM solution.
