AtTask Recognized as a Leader

Press Release

July 11, 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,” said Chuck Huntley, a project manager at Appalachian Regional Healthcare Systems. “AtTask allows our directors to organize work, and ensure 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 stated 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.
