Autotask Supports Microsoft Small Business Specialists, Sponsors "Yellow Lounge" at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference

Autotask Makes It Easier for IT Solution Providers Specializing in Microsoft Small Business Solutions to Run Their IT Businesses Better

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - July 12, 2010) -  Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference -- Autotask Corporation, developer of the world's No. 1 hosted IT Business Management software, today announced its sponsorship of the popular "Yellow Lounge," open to Autotask customers and SBSC partners attending Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference this week in Washington, D.C. To help IT Solution Providers who specialize in Microsoft Small Business Solutions gain productivity and more easily manage their IT businesses, the Yellow Lounge will provide unique networking opportunities, product demonstrations and best-practice sharing. 

Autotask's hosted IT business management solutions allow VARs, MSPs and other technology providers to more easily sell, implement, manage and bill the IT products and services they offer. Autotask Professional Services Automation (PSA) software helps IT solution providers improve business performance by automating and better managing their people, projects and processes, while the VARStreet family of advanced quoting and e-commerce solutions makes it easier and more profitable for them to sell and procure technology products. Together, Autotask and VARStreet give customers the ability to automate repetitive, time-draining daily operational tasks, increase margins, capture lost billable time and focus more effort on business development and growth.

Autotask customer and Microsoft SBSC partner Debi Bush of CMIT Solutions of Denver, CO enjoys many advantages, "Autotask has given us the ability to better track our daily operations and monitor the profitability we are able to gain from selling managed and professional services. In addition, the productivity of our technical engineers has dramatically increased since we began using Autotask."

Autotask CEO Bob Godgart describes the benefits of more efficient IT business management and the importance of striking a balanced approach to selling IT products and services, "The current data from IPED is compelling; IT solutions providers who blend their product and services sales realize significantly higher net income and operating profit than those who rely on only one. That's why we focus on giving our customers the tools they need to better manage the complete product and services lifecycle for their clients, and for their businesses."

Godgart continued, "With VARStreet, we make it easier and more efficient for Microsoft's Small Business Specialists to sell and procure Microsoft solutions, through customized quotes or their own branded, fully-automated online stores. And it's all supported by real-time price and availability feeds from the largest distributors in the industry. We fully support Microsoft's SBSC program, and we understand how critical online services and Microsoft's BPOS managed solution will become. We're doing everything possible to support those businesses."
