LEHI, UT — July 10, 2012 — AtTask, an industry leader in Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) project management solutions and of Collaborative Work Management, has been named to the “Leaders” quadrant in the Gartner Inc., 2012 Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Based Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) Services.
AtTask provides best in class on-demand PPM tools that solve project management problems the right way by making work about people and giving executives visibility they can trust. AtTask’s focus on social work-collaboration results in dramatically increased adoption rates and encourages team member engagement.
“Real-time cross communication is critical in the work that we do. We have seen increased engagement with users and they stay logged into the product longer,” states Chuck Huntley, a Project Manager at Appalachian Regional Healthcare Systems. “AtTask allows our directors to organize work, and ensure we we’re focusing on the right things. As a result, more people quickly adopted AtTask, which helped us accomplish the goals of our company.”
Gartner states that “Leaders share many attributes with technology providers rated as Visionaries and Challengers, but they are also differentiated by comparatively higher ratings in many areas, not just a few, with overwhelming customer references supporting their claims submitted as evidence. Consistency between a provider's stated strategy and product direction, and its execution (that is, integrity) is important, along with demonstrated vision, enabling the provider to address emerging and often vaguely defined market requirements.”
“Being positioned within the ‘Leaders’ quadrant by Gartner confirms the work we have been doing within the PPM and IT space to establish ourselves as market leaders and project management innovators,” said Eric Morgan, CEO of AtTask. “We have gained input from a tremendous group of global clients while rapidly incorporating social and collaborative capabilities into our offering, enabling us to provide a solution better suited to help organizations successfully understand and manage their work. It’s an honor to be recognized by Gartner as a leader in the space.”
Gartner evaluates vendors on 15 weighted criteria based on their relative strengths in the market, including: core goods and services; product capabilities, quality, feature sets and skills; product innovation, customer experience, product execution, marketing responsiveness, organizations business model, and financial stability.
AtTask is the SaaS leader in project management solutions and Collaborative Work Management. AtTask helps organizations empower knowledge workers by leveraging the combined power of social collaboration, increased engagement, accountability, visibility, and recognition—making it possible for people to take ownership of their work and perform at a higher level—ultimately creating an environment that fosters productivity, motivation, and results. AtTask’s collaborative work management approach solves critical business issues for a broad range of customers including Forbes Global 2000 brands such as Nike, Cisco, ABC, ESPN, 3M, REI, and Trek.
