Workfront, formerly known as AtTask, a provider of cloud-based enterprise work management solutions, has celebrated the opening of its new headquarters after a highly successful fiscal year. In conjunction with the opening ceremony, the Workfront team provided tours of its new, state-of-the art facilities and answered questions about the company’s future.
In January 2015, the decision was made to rename the company under the new corporate brand Workfront. The name change was considered the foundation of the company’s branding efforts to convey the enterprise nature of the solutions it provides to its customers.
“Simply stated, we have outgrown the AtTask name,” said Eric Morgan, CEO of Workfront. “The company was founded in 2001 and has evolved significantly since then. We now have over 500 employees, and more than 1,000 clients. We are solving complex work management problems…and we needed a name that conveyed the enterprise power of the solutions we deliver. Workfront, as confirmed by our market testing, is a name that is a much better reflection of the company that we’ve built, the leadership role we play, and the problems we solve for our customers.”
In addition to outgrowing its original name, the company outgrew it’s existing space as well. “In January 2013, we moved to Thanksgiving Park in Lehi, UT, but we quickly outgrew that space as we found ourselves with employees doubled up in cubicles,” said Eric Morgan, CEO of Workfront.
Morgan continued, “Utah is becoming a true hotbed for technology in the U.S., and Workfront is a key contributor to the state’s tech success. Last year we added nearly 250 new jobs and we have no intention of slowing down. In 2015, we anticipate continued growth as we deliver a solution that helps our customers better prioritize, schedule and manage the work across their enterprise.”
The company has received numerous awards in the past few years, including recognition for its standings in the region. These include the following:
- Ranked in Utah Business Magazine as on of Utah’s Best Companies to Work for, second year in a row
- Ranked 24th in Utah Business Magazine’s Fast 50; sixth year being ranked
- Ranked 51st in MountainWest Capital Network’s Utah 100; seventh year being ranked
Workfront solves work management challenges by managing the full lifecycle of work, from initial request, prioritization and planning through coordination, delivery and measurement in a single tool. By providing a single system, teams are able to collaborate in the context of work and gain complete visibility into the work that is being done. This eliminates the need for unnecessary status meetings and gives teams time back to be more productive.
