-- Resource Visibility capabilities allow any enterprise team to make
data-driven work management choices quickly and easily

SILICON SLOPES, Utah, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AtTask, a leading
enterprise work management provider, has introduced two revolutionary
capabilities—the first of their kind in the industry—that give team leaders
complete visibility into who the ideal owner is for each assignment, how new
assignments will impact their existing work, and which team members can take
on other projects to balance the load.

Team leaders face a constant struggle to effectively balance work requests
against the time, skill set and availability of team members. When assigning
work, team leaders have little visibility into how that assignment will impact
other projects, how it will affect existing deadlines, or even how it will
impact the work-life balance of the assigned team member.

The new AtTask release gives team leaders and members the power to make the
same data-driven work management choices that were previously only available
using Gantt charts and complex resource planning interfaces. These innovative
capabilities include:

  *Smart Assignments – Rather than defaulting to the people they know best or
    those they have worked with in the past, Smart Assignments gives team
    leaders intelligent recommendations for each project task. Using robust
    data and powerful algorithms, Smart Assignments identifies the team member
    with the right role and skills to complete the task effectively – and the
    availability to do so on time.
  *Workload Balancing – The new interface also gives team leads a simple,
    graphical view of everything their team is working on, including work
    assignments, personal tasks, issues and time off. This allows them to
    identify team members who have too much on their plates and redistribute
    the load by dragging and dropping assignments across the team.

"AtTask is bringing resource visibility across enterprise teams," said AtTask
CEO Eric Morgan. "One of the core strengths of our product has always been its
ease of use and ability to drive adoption among business users, not just
project managers. Capabilities like Smart Assignments and Workload Balancing
build on that commitment by taking complex and antiquated features found in
traditional tools and making them accessible to modern enterprise teams."
