EAST GREENBUSH, NY - In response to rapidly increasing market demand, Autotask Corporation, the world’s leading provider of hosted IT business management software, today announced that it is significantly expanding global operations and translating its software into six languages; German, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, French, Italian and Japanese.   The move follows recent announcements that the company has opened international sales and support offices in the UK and signed a distribution agreement to serve customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Autotask software is currently used by thousands of IT service providers, value-added resellers (VARs) and managed services providers (MSPs) in 54 countries.  More than 25% of Autotask’s customers are located outside of the United States and Canada; a figure that continues to increase.  The company anticipates fully-localized and translated versions of its software will be available in German and Mandarin Chinese by early 2012, with the remaining translated versions available by the end of Q1, 2012.

“Autotask already has a significant operation around the world and year-to-date sales outside North America have just reached triple-digit growth over this time last year,” said Mark Cattini, Autotask President and CEO. “Making a serious commitment to meet the demands of our global customers and prospects is a natural step in the growth of our business and a natural part of the evolution of any mature software-as-a-service [SaaS] company."

“Our customers, IT services providers, work with more than one million businesses and tens of millions of end points around the globe to keep their technology infrastructure working optimally,” said Kevin Donovan, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Service at Autotask. “As more and more of those SMB and enterprise businesses replace legacy software systems with outsourced cloud-based, SaaS solutions, the demand for an open IT business management platform like Autotask has grown steadily.  We saw the trend in North America first, but it is increasing rapidly around the world.”

“The rapid growth we are experiencing now benefits all our users because it allows us to continue to invest heavily in our core product development and support, increasing the value and improving the overall experience for our customers,” Cattini added.

Autotask Corporation currently employs more than 200 full-time staff in East Greenbush, NY, USA, London, England, Beijing, China and Pune, India and operates datacenters in the United States and the United Kingdom.
