MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF. – April 29, 2008 – Clarizen, the leader in OnDemand project execution software, today announced that it continues to see significant momentum in the marketplace and over 13,000 users are now registered to use its service.

One of Clarizen’s recent customers is 24-by-7 Service, Inc., a telecom services firm that helps enterprises monitor, maintain, and migrate multi-vendor telecom infrastructures. “Project management is at the core of our business. Effective telecom project management requires four components –a solid project plan; ability to keep your distributed team members on the same page at all times; enabling team members to easily access the project plan and finally, provide clear and accurate visibility into the status of every task so potential issues can be addressed proactively”, said Hal Anderson, Chief Technology Officer for 24-by-7 Service. “We needed a Web 2.0 project management tool that met all of these requirements and could integrate into our on-demand telecom services portal called PBX+ ( – Clarizen was our answer”.
