OREM, Utah – October 17, 2006 — In the past, the value added reseller (VAR) community has been somewhat limited when it comes to recommending project and portfolio management (PPM) software to their customers. With PPM software revenues expected to surpass $10 billion by 2010 (Gartner), VARs are ready for an alternative to the current, cumbersome desktop project management software on the market. In response to the market need, AtTask, Inc. today announced that its on–demand project management software, AtTask v4 r2, is now available to the reseller community through AtTask's new partner program. The program features among other benefits; zero program fees, free application licenses for sales partners and industry–leading commissions.
AtTask's PPM software is available as software as a service or as a hosted enterprise solution. AtTask runs on virtually any software platform, is browser and database independent, and is scalable to meet the demands of small boutiques to large enterprises. AtTask was also designed to allow organizations to integrate literally any software application into the project management process, including CRM, HR and financial applications.
"After evaluating the marketplace, we recognized a large gap between the project management needs of today's businesses and the software solutions available to the VAR community," said Chad Perry, new vice president of channel sales for AtTask, Inc. "VARs want choices, and they have been somewhat limited in the past with what they can offer their customers. With that in mind, we are excited to now work with the reseller community to offer our powerful, flexible and scalable solution that meets the PPM needs of a variety of companies and industries. Whether a company is running Linux, OS X or Windows, needs 5 or 5,000 licenses, or wants a hosted application or on–demand service, AtTask is the answer."
While many PPM applications can be difficult to implement and use, AtTask is possibly the highest adopted software in the project management industry. The adoption rate is attributed to the user friendliness of the software, as well as the flexibility of AtTask in allowing companies to easily customize the software to fit their business needs without losing any functionality. A recent product review in eWeek magazine said "AtTask 4.02 does a good job of making project management approachable by offering a simplified user interface?in fact, the application feels much more like a personal productivity application than a project management application."
"AtTask is looking for key strategic resellers around the world that have the vision to become regional project management experts," added Perry. "We are promising the necessary tools and resources to help them increase their bottom lines by offering them a proven, functional product that can truly benefit their customers. We know that the demand for project management applications is on the rise, so we're investing significant time and resources into outfitting the reseller community with an alternative solution to help them capture a piece of the market. We see the reseller community as a key sales channel for us, and have developed a partner program that will rival any in the industry."
