EAST GREENBUSH, NY--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) - Sponsor and registration count is heating up for Autotask Corporation's spring interactive face-to-face conference, Autotask Community Live 2010. The agenda is final for the conference that is set to take place in Miami, FL on April 18th - 20th. The action-packed agenda boasts tips and ideas to better manage an IT service business as well as details for owners, technicians, operations managers, sales professionals, even finance personnel.

Initial sponsors for the event include: Platinum sponsor Zenith InfoTech Ltd.; Gold sponsors Intronis Inc., Level Platforms Inc. and N-able Technologies; and, Silver sponsors Asigra, CompTIA, OwnWebNow Corp., and Reflexion. Autotask CEO Bob Godgart anticipates more sponsors to join in the upcoming weeks. "We're already attracting a record number of U.S. and international attendees and sponsors who are taking part in this year's event. When everything is said and done we will have the most diverse group involved in a PSA user conference."

The agenda is based on feedback from last year's event and includes topics for both new and advanced Autotask users:

-- Sunday kicks off with the nearly sold-out Autotask Academy Accelerator Bootcamp offering jam-packed tips and tricks to maximize the popular IT services management platform, and additional pre-conference events including CompTIA's Mastering Business Strategy and Karl Palachuk's Execution and a Zero Downtime Migration seminar

Registrants will also enjoy innovative workshops led by peers, Autotask representatives, Managed and IT Services industry leaders, in addition to multiple networking opportunities and more. The schedule is designed for certain classes to be repeated in order to avoid overflows. Also, schedule conflicts are minimized based on anticipated related topics.

Last year's Autotask Community Live event had a lasting impression on Autotask customer Jay Street of Critical Business Systems: "I'm sure looking forward to this year's event. Last year's Community Live not only convinced me that we made the right choice for Autotask as our PSA tool, but it motivated me to move from Autotask®Go! to Autotask®Pro. It's a great product and we can't imagine 'doing life' around here without it."
