EAST GREENBUSH, NY - August 25, 2008 -- Autotask Corporation today announced it has successfully integrated its award-winning, web-based Business Management Software products with OnForce, the world's largest marketplace for IT service professionals. Available now, the technology integration between Autotask products and OnForce allows service providers to increase their bandwidth and quickly expand IT service coverage from regional to national without adding permanent staff.
"Demand for skilled contract professionals is at an all-time high, making this integration with Autotask a timely and strategic partnership for OnForce," said Jose Bernal, OnForce's senior vice president of business development. "By integrating with our marketplace and allowing solution providers to access OnForce directly from the Autotask system, we've made it easier for customers to find the IT talent they need and manage their outsourced IT projects from start to finish."
According to Autotask customer Andrew Harper, CIO of Gaeltek the integration not only saves his company time, but it will ultimately make it easier for his team to create an OnForce request, thus streamlining the entire IT outsourcing and collaboration process. "The integration to OnForce is built right into Autotask, and works automatically. Furthermore, the integration is free and ties into a valued resource that we already use today."
