OREM, Utah – October 18, 2006 — AtTask, Inc., a leading provider of Web–based project and portfolio management (PPM) software, today introduced a new Consultant Partner Program focused on building strategic relationships with leading business consultants to expand the reach of AtTask, one of the highest adopted PPM applications in the industry.
The complexity of many of today's PPM applications has created an absence of flexibility for project teams. Companies large and small are being forced to mold their project management practices to match the way their current software was designed, rather than being able to customize their software to meet individual, team or enterprise needs. AtTask v4 r2 meets the needs of small firms to large organizations, and is available as software as a service or as a hosted enterprise solution.
"For many companies, the selection of PPM software has been based largely on how close an application's architecture matches their current business operations and IT infrastructure," said Chad Perry, vice president of channel sales for AtTask. "This defies what every good business consultant knows ? technology should never dictate sound business practices. Consultants are trusted advisors, and know what products and services are the best for their customers. Good project management software should be easy to use and easy to integrate into a company's existing network. AtTask removes the complexity from PPM, providing a browser, database and platform independent solution that can often be deployed in a matter of hours rather than weeks."
AtTask allows organizations to integrate literally any software application into the project management process, including CRM, HR and financial applications. AtTask serves as the first point of contact for human–activated events, triggering one or more events in one or more applications across the enterprise, thus driving true business automation. AtTask also allows organizations to streamline and document work using project templates and published processes. The software's automation tools help projects run smoothly and eliminate much of the busy–work that consumes valuable time.
"We want to be the number one PPM software tool recommended by the consulting industry," stated Perry. "The consulting industry has been looking for valid project management software alternatives to what's currently available in the market. AtTask is that alternative solution that will help their customers and help them add to their bottom line. We see the consulting community as a key sales channel for us, and have developed a partner program that reflects our commitment, including generous commissions, free partner licenses and pre–sales support that will literally ensure their success."
