The Social Side of Work – Industry Awards Validate AtTask’s Work Management Vision
“It’s time to rethink the way people understand and organize their work.”
That’s the message coming from AtTask, Inc., www.attask.com, and apparently they’re not the only ones that think so.
Following the successful launch of TeamHome, AtTask, the first true social work management platform, announced today that the company’s new approach to work management is gaining quick favor in the marketplace, with recent recognition that includes being named a finalist to both the Software & Information Industry Association’s 26th Annual CODiE Awards and the 2011 Stoel Rives Utah Innovation Awards.
“These awards validate the research and time we’ve spent examining and understanding what employees want and need in order to work more effectively and be more productive,” said Scott Johnson, Founder & CEO of AtTask. “We take great pride in providing a solution that is easy to use and empowers team members by creating an environment where they have more control over their work lives. This is the future of work.”
TeamHome is a new workspace designed around the philosophy that work should be social and democratized. Users are able to see, organize and communicate around their work in a simple interface. It provides individuals with the opportunity to have a say in their workload by accepting, re-assigning or negotiating timelines and specific details related to each assignment or task. This allows individuals to create a more accurate and detailed list of the items they’ve committed to and are responsible for.
AtTask was selected as a finalist for the 2011 CODiE Awards in the “Best Project Management Solution” category. This category recognizes the best business applications that automate the management of project-based business activities. The CODiE awards received 425 total nominations, and 113 products from 80 companies were selected as finalists. Nominated products underwent an extensive review by judges via live demonstration, trial product access and analysis of product documentation.
Winners will be named at an awards reception and dinner on May 23, 2011 at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco, California.
The Stoel Rives Utah Innovation Awards recognize significant innovations and the Utah companies that create them. The awards are designed to draw attention to the high level of innovation taking place throughout the state. This year marks the tenth year Stoel Rives has issued the Utah Innovation Awards.
TeamHome is a finalist in the Enterprise Software and Web-Enabled B2B Solutions category. Winners will be named at an awards luncheon at the Little America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah on Tuesday, May 3, 2011.
AtTask will demo TeamHome at the Utah Innovation Awards luncheon, beginning at 11:30 a.m. MST in the lobby of the Little America Hotel. For more information about AtTask and TeamHome visit www.attask.com.
