Corporate Description

Tasker.ly is a wholly-owned division of Newsinator LLC (formerly Twain Partners) and was founded in 1998.

The division was originally founded to solve change management issues using the cloud. Typical problems such as launching a new product, managing distant staff and their competing priorities, making email a power-tool and not a sinkhole. And this is when we became social. 

The original name in fact was simply "WhatRUWorkingOn.com", and unaffectionately mispronounced often when minimized to its acronym WRUWO. [Still functioning by the way.] Cool kids were told of the name change.

As we grew more integrated into the workflow of divisions of corporate America, we thought clients would take less offense of actual work product being reduced to mere tasks, than the overlording original name suggesting managers are watching every move (which managers can do, using our system).
Tasker.ly's main staff is a core of 5 developers and trainers, a Productivity officer, and a client service rep. The Tasker.ly division is currently seeking a CEO and is being spun out from its parent. The parent company has 30 clients and is profitable.
