EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Autotask Corporation today unveiled the industry's most robust set of Service Level Management Tools. Available now as part of Autotask's award-winning IT business management solutions, the new technology provides IT service providers with a more effective way to quickly and easily define, monitor and measure performance criteria. As a result, Autotask customers gain an operational advantage and are able to radically improve their service delivery and client satisfaction, while expanding their service offerings to clients.

The new upgrade, which was released today to all 25,000 current users at no additional charge, enables IT service providers to:

    -- Define key performance indicators (KPIs) by client
    -- Set performance targets by priority, issue type and sub-issue type
    -- Customize service levels by business hours and after-hours support
       requirements
    -- Define workflow and escalation rules
    -- Seamlessly integrate their Autotask service tickets
    -- Organize and prioritize service targets in ticket search grids
    -- Create customized reports for clients using Autotask LiveReports

"This new technology has been in development with the direct involvement of a broad cross-section of our customers to ensure it hits the mark and helps drive more productivity and efficiency throughout the services lifecycle," said Len DiCostanzo, senior vice president of professional services and business optimization at Autotask. "Those IT service providers who have seen the technology in action tell us that Autotask's new Service Level Management tool leap-frogs anything offered in hosted IT service management or professional services automation (PSA) tools on the market today."

DiCostanzo continues, "As more and more clients require their providers to establish performance criteria, the ability to set, monitor and report against these goals will present a significant way for IT service providers to differentiate their business from competitors and add more value to clients."

The new Service Level Management Tools are fully integrated into both Autotask Pro, the company's full-featured IT service professional management software, and Autotask Go!, its entry-level service management solution.
