CoreConnex Teams Up With Autotask to Produce Corelytics Special Edition

Industry's Best IT Business Management Platform Provides Most Insightful, In-Depth Business Analytics and Service Management Reporting to PSA Users

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 2, 2009) - SMB NATION -- Autotask Corporation today announced it has teamed up with CoreConnex, Inc. to offer a special Corelytics™ Autotask® Edition to customers and users of the industry's best IT business management platform.

Designed to track and analyze managed service businesses, Corelytics Financial Dashboard offers customers a benchmark on past performance and a methodology to forecast the future. The dashboard pulls financial data from Intuit's Quickbooks® accounting application and will pull key financial metrics from Autotask, providing a pictorial view of critical business metrics from the current quarter up to the past two-years. Effective immediately, all Autotask customers will receive the Corelytics™ Lite, Autotask Edition for free, or they may purchase the more comprehensive Corelytics Autotask Standard Edition for $49 per month.

"Now, only Autotask customers have a complete execution advantage over their business' performance," says Autotask CEO Bob Godgart. "By combining Corelytics' financial insight with Autotask's powerful hosted service platform, we are enabling our customers to take a pulse of their financial track record, better forecast upcoming quarters, and manage their businesses to peak performance. That's priceless."

Last month, CoreConnex secured an exclusive agreement with Service Leadership, Inc. (S-L) to embed S-L's Predominant Business Model© (PBM) calculator and S-L Index™ into the Corelytics' Financial Dashboard. The S-L Index benchmarks financial performance against an IT service industry standard. Anonymous IT service statistics are collected and updated monthly, allowing Autotask users to gain a quick, one-click view of how they stack up.

CoreConnex, Inc. President and CEO Frank Coker explains, "Autotask's customers can see how they compare to top performing companies with similar business models, and then set profitability and operating goals that explode industry norms. Our partnership with Autotask will allow us to combine the industry's best operating IT service data with our raw financial data to help the IT service industry take a giant leap forward."

Customers can access the Corelytics Autotask Lite and Standard Editions easily from the cloud to track revenue, expense, gross margin, and profit trend lines, as well as set service operating and financial goals inside Autotask. Plus, Autotask Live Reports' built-in ad hoc reporting engine offers operating detail that goes way beyond standard service reports, with visibility into every single data field, whether hard-coded or within one of the unlimited user-defined fields. Autotask users are able to spot trends and understand the dynamics that affect day-to-day business and profitability.

"Autotask customers can see what's possible and where management needs to place their focus to not only deliver on financial results, but improve the overall service experience," Godgart continues. "These capabilities are unprecedented in our industry today."
