AtTask Wins 2009 SIIA CODiE Award-Named Best Project Management Solution

OREM, Utah--May 7, 2009--The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) names AtTask, the world’s most popular project and portfolio management (PPM) solution, Best Project Management Solution at the 24th Annual CODiE Awards--the only peer-reviewed awards within the software and content industries. AtTask was selected from a field of more than 850 CODiE nominations by a panel of expert judges as the software solution that best automates the management of critical business initiatives across the enterprise.

“Now, more than ever, information technology is playing a vital role in fostering American innovation and providing a powerful economic engine,” said SIIA President Ken Wasch. “We should not only congratulate these winners, but we should keep a close eye on them. These are the products and businesses that will help ensure our country maintains its leadership in the global information economy.”

“Winning the CODiE award for enabling executives to align strategic vision and financial objectives with project selection and execution on enterprise-wide business initiatives, affirms that we are incorporating the right innovations into our product to help organizations maximize their resources and reduce costs,” says Scott Johnson, CEO of AtTask. “Managers and executives in any industry can see what’s happening from boardroom decisions to project team execution with real-time, reliable data, and can actually forecast when projects will be completed--there is no other PPM solution that is offering this kind of functionality and business value.”

This year’s CODiE award is the latest in a series of recognition for AtTask, which includes last year’s CODiE Award for Best Project Management Solution. AtTask is ranked on the Inc. 500’s list of fastest-growing private companies, included in Apple’s “Go-to-Market” list of iPhone web apps, and recognized for its superior feature set, help/support, and collaboration tools by TopTenREVIEWS for the third year in a row. Chosen as a Red Herring 100 North America Winner, AtTask leads the industry exceeding Q1 2009 projections with 140% year-over-year increase in bookings.

“The CODiE Awards are so highly regarded in our industry because they are chosen by the people who actually work in the industry,” says Wasch. “Several rounds of voting--including a final round for some categories that took place just yesterday [May 5, 2009] after finalists had a chance to display their products--ensure that the winner truly represents the best-of-the-best.”
