ÂWe looked at a number of possible solutions to support the delivery of our Professional Services, and Autotask clearly had the most flexible platform to fit our business,Â said Greg Rable, XpediteÂs Senior Vice President of Global Services. ÂWe were also impressed with AutotaskÂs knowledge of the IT Professional Services business.Â
Another new customer is Sada Systems Inc., a technology consulting and outsourced IT services firm. ÂWhat attracted us to Autotask is the ability to combine and reconcile all of our billable activities in one system,Â said Tony Safoian, CEO of the firm.

The new IT Services Edition of Autotask was specifically designed to help IT Service Providers manage all aspects associated with the delivery of their services, such as:
Â· Tracking the customer relationship from prospect, through new customer setup to service delivery and billing.
Â· Implementing IT and software engagements with robust project management tools that keep every task on track and within budget
Â· Processing customer service requests with streamlined workflow, automated notification and a secure client access portal that lets customers create their own tickets via the web.
Â· Tracking and monitoring the billable time that field service technicians spend on support, break-fix calls and scheduled maintenance, with real-time status and reporting.
Â· Approving and invoicing all services, with the flexibility to handle block hours, time-and-materials, or fixed-price contracts.
Â· Capturing and converting managed services alerts through Microsoft Outlook into service tickets that are tracked from diagnosis through resolution.
ÂThe combination of all these tools makes IT Service companies run better,Â said Autotask CEO Bob Godgart.
