AtTask, Inc Announces a Cost–Effective and Easy to Use Alternative to Microsoft Project 2007

Orem, Utah –March 3, 2008 – AtTask, the leading provider of on–demand project and portfolio management (PPM) software, announced the addition of new interactive Gantt charting and team building tools to its web–based solution. These tools offer a comfortable working environment for MS Project Professionals while still providing collaboration for project workers and business intelligence for executives.

“AtTask’s interactive Gantt chart is our invitation to MS Project users; take what you know about MS Project, put it online, and see your plans in action. The Gantt area of AtTask will feel very familiar to those who’ve used project before,” said AtTask CEO Scott Johnson. “The great benefit to organizations though is that once the plan is in place, there is no confusion between that plan and the people doing the work – it’s all online and its very easy to use”.

Another key addition to AtTask’s tool set to is a new what–if way to make task assignments on projects – known as team building. “When managers are assigning tasks, they want to see who is available for assignment. They want a quick look across all projects and commitments in order to find best fits” said Nate Bowler, CTO. “AtTask will give immediate feedback about resource contention and availability as teams are being built. This is very interactive with undo, redo, and a host of helper tools.” Once the plan looks good, the manager goes live with it.

The ongoing innovation with AtTask is giving an edge to executives who need business intelligence about a full set of projects, project managers who need to understand schedules workload and trends, and average workers who need easy access to daily requirements.
