AtTask launches new Enterprise Work Management solution that provides visibility to every level of the organization

Traditional Project Management Tools Fail to Meet Enterprise Work Needs

SILICON SLOPES, UT — January 30, 2013 — Today’s enterprise work environment is more complex than ever before. Work is often impacted by a myriad of siloed tools, disengagement, confusion, and a lack of visibility into value and resources. Traditional project management tools are no longer enough to meet these challenges, as they only focus on projects, not the full work lifecycle. AtTask is changing all of this with a single solution to help teams manage the full lifecycle of work with the industry’s only cloud-based Enterprise Work Management solution.

“The enterprise application market has matured over the past several years, and we’ve seen that traditional project management tools are failing,” said Eric Morgan, AtTask CEO. “Our clients are no longer just managing projects — they are managing and controlling the chaos of all types of enterprise work. Enterprise teams need a single, central place to improve visibility and productivity by eliminating the wasted time caused by disconnected tools and processes. Our Enterprise Work Management solution provides that single system of truth for our customers.”

AtTask revolutionized project management over two years ago with the introduction of social project management and a focus on team member adoption through its unique TeamHome solution. Customers reported a 400% increase in team member adoption and a 500% increase in project manager adoption, which delivered exceptional visibility and productivity. Enterprise Work Management is the next stage in solving the complexities faced by enterprise teams.

Hundreds of companies, including Fortune 500 brands, have managed their work with AtTask, including Nike, Cisco, ABC, ESPN, 3M, BASF, Trek, and Schneider Electric. Schneider Electric has leveraged AtTask to manage its global work across several departments since 2009. Since that time, the company has increased its workflow through streamlined processes, better capacity planning, and faster reporting.

“With AtTask, we’re able to get full work visibility and insight in real-time to help bring clarity to the organization, which helps us build trust with our peers.” said Bill Maxwell, Schneider Electric’s Director of Communication Systems. “AtTask has become our system of truth.”

AtTask is the only work management solution in the market that meets the unique needs of the enterprise: Managing repeatable, structured, and frequent interdependent work that requires significant team collaboration. The AtTask Enterprise Work Management is a single solution that provides:

  • End-to-end work lifecycle management

“Enterprise Work Management provides visibility for senior managers, managers, and enterprise workers that they can trust, use, and understand,” said Morgan. “Visibility is critical for every role involved as they justify and forecast their resources, align work with strategy, and improve productivity. The key is to put a tool in the hands of the team members that they will actually use. Once they engage, the ability to gain visibility increases dramatically.”
