Autotask Corporation CEO Bob Godgart Recognized as Channel Chief

Everything Channel's CRN Recognizes IT Channel Software Innovator's Quality of Service, Support, Product Reliability and Channel Friendliness as Top Reasons for Honor

EAST GREENBUSH, NY--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Autotask Corporation, an innovator of business management software and services, today announced that founder and CEO Bob Godgart was recognized as a Channel Chief by Everything Channel's CRN.

CRN Channel Chiefs are the most influential executives who consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies. Under Godgart's leadership, Autotask Corporation had a record year of success and introduced an unprecedented amount of new and enhanced offerings designed to help IT solution providers manage their IT services businesses better.

In addition, Autotask unveiled a Professional Services business unit in 2008 which enabled the company to build closer ties to its customers by helping them establish and grow a managed services practice, said Godgart. "None of our competitors offer such a service. Our professional services team is a true differentiator enabling us to go beyond the technology and deliver the training, education and best practices IT solution providers want and need to succeed long-term."

Last year, Autotask welcomed more than 11,000 new VARs, MSPs and service providers, in addition to extending its global footprint in Asia and the United Kingdom, doubling international sales to account for 20 percent of annual revenue. The software innovator also continued research and investments to set new performance standards for its entire software portfolio. Finally, Autotask inked the most successful implementations and integrations with leading managed services software innovators, as well as alliances with Master MSPs and manufacturers.

"We've built Autotask around the IT business needs of our service and solution provider customers," said Godgart. "It is an honor to be recognized by our customers and Everything Channel's CRN for our commitment and dedication to growing successful IT service businesses and building more profit opportunity for the IT channel."

This year, Autotask will host its first worldwide user conference March 29 - 31 in Nashville, TN. All Autotask users are welcome to attend. Registration is offered exclusively through the Autotask User CommunITy.
