EAST GREENBUSH, NY--(Marketwire - February 23, 2010) - Autotask Corporation today announced that CEO Bob Godgart has been named a 2010 Channel Chief by the Everything Channel's CRN. Channel Chiefs are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. They consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.

Today, Autotask's online and offline user community is impressively comprised of more than 30,000 peers and additional strategic industry partners, creating a unique person-to-person network where members can exchange ideas, best practices and innovative solutions on how to better manage their businesses. Autotask Corporation's innovative IT Business Management platform allows companies to sell, implement, deliver and bill services in the cloud, and gain control over their critical business processes and manage people, projects, even business partners and clients more easily.

For the eighth consecutive year the Channel Chiefs were chosen by Everything Channel editorial based on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities.

"I am both honored and humbled to be recognized as a 2010 Channel Chief by Everything Channel for Autotask's dedication to the IT channel," said Godgart. "From day-one of launching Autotask, we recognized the talent and expertise that exists within the IT Channel. Autotask is dedicated to serving channel partners with valuable IT service and solutions management practices that will spur growth among our user community, forge new industry partnerships, and strengthen ties among businesses in our industry."
