OREM, Utah – February 22, 2006 — AtTask, Inc., a leading provider of project management software, today announced the addition of several new organizations to its growing list of customers. The mix of companies and nonprofit organizations has selected AtTask's enterprise project management software, AtTask, to simplify projects for a variety of business and organizational needs. New customers include: Adaptive Limited (U.K.), Focused Momentum, Healthnotes, Literacyworks and The Local Pages.
"The ability to solve a variety of complex concerns from all types and sizes of organizations demonstrates the versatility of our project management tool," said Abraham Knell, vice president of sales for AtTask, Inc. "AtTask will maximize management resources, facilitate team collaboration, and improve organizational efficiencies and individual accountability for any size company in any industry. It has become the project management tool of choice for many industry leaders."
Focused Momentum, based in San Francisco, Calif., works with corporate leaders and leadership groups to define their strategic direction and align their organization's energy and efforts toward its achievement. "Our business grew by 175 percent last year, so our 'old' methods were completely unable to handle the complexity of our changing company," said Cecilia Lynch, principal, Focused Momentum. "One of our greatest challenges was billing our customers in a timely manner. Employees work remotely on multiple projects and regularly perform different functions. With AtTask, we now enjoy accelerated invoicing, central project management and expense report systems, and new easier project design tools. Overall, AtTask is the most effective tool to analyze our business performance."
Adaptive Limited (www.adaptive.com) is an international corporation providing a web based and industry standards compliant Enterprise Knowledge Repository and related "Adaptations" to enable Enterprise Architecture management. Graham Robson, professional services manager for Adaptive commented about AtTask, "As a UK/US customer, AtTask's multi–currency and multi–calendar capabilities were a real factor in our choice of project management tools."
Utah–based The Local Pages (www.thelocalpages.net) produces multi–state local directories with unique features such as a reverse directory section, easy–to–read bold print throughout the directory, a menu section, and a comprehensive community information section.
Joe Reidling, director of operations for The Local Pages said, "Our business is forecasted to grow exponentially over the next few years and we have selected AtTask as the project management tool to make that growth possible. AtTask is a very robust product with a price that is ideal for a company like ours and the level of customization AtTask provides will be integral in allocating and managing our expected growth. This tool will prevent us from duplicating work and allow us a snapshot view of our business potential."
Literacyworks, an educational nonprofit organization, uses educational technology to increase the quality, availability, and accessibility of literacy curriculum for individuals with low literacy skills. Literacyworks serves programs, both nationally and internationally, with over 140 countries coming to the site to increase their English literacy skills. The non–profit organization, based in Oakland, Calif., provides education assistance and literacy programs with consultation in the areas of technology support, educational material, funding, and assessment.

"@Task has given us the opportunity to help our clients to manage their projects more efficiently," said Max Ferman, art director with Literacyworks. "We use AtTask's Helpdesk module to initiate a request for work, convert that request into a project plan, and confirm with clients before we begin the process. They know exactly how many hours of work their project will require, how much the work will cost, and how soon they can expect the result. There are no surprises, and no miscommunication of requirements. Invoices are compiled as we go, and clients know immediately how they are doing on their budget."
