AtTask Project and Portfolio Management Solution Considered Recessionary Godsend
AtTask provides Washington State Employees Credit Union complete project portfolio transparency, accountability, and real-time access to accurate and up-to-date project information

OREM, Utah--March 9, 2009--Washington State Employees Credit Union (WSECU) chose AtTask, the world’s most popular provider of project and portfolio management (PPM) solutions, to maximize IT resources and provide complete project transparency with an easy-to-use solution that will eventually be rolled out to departments outside of IT.

“AtTask is a godsend,” says Keenan Wagner, Director of IT for Washington State Credit Union. “It allows us to look at everything side by side and prepare reports that we can hand off to senior management so they can tell us where they want us to go.”

“Organizations like WSECU turn to AtTask because they need to validate every initiative and understand the impact of every potential project to maximize their resources,” says Scott Johnson, CEO of AtTask. “AtTask provides the project and portfolio transparency and accountability they need to focus on those projects that will provide the greatest benefit to their business.”

Senior Management reports that previously took a day and a half to compile and prepare, are now available immediately from a dashboard, reviewed in minutes, and prepared for presentation in under an hour—allowing decision-makers access to the accurate information they need to make informed decisions. The bottom-line benefits to WSECU include complete project portfolio transparency, accountability at every level of the project, and real-time access to up-to-date project information, available through an easy-to-use interface that encourages broad adoption.

“Ease of use was a major consideration for us,” says Wagner. “AtTask offered the most intuitive user interface, and is very well accepted by all the members of our team.”
