Reykjavik, Iceland, April 27, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Tempo, a global leader and visionary in building best-of-breed solutions for Atlassian’s popular project management platform, JIRA, today announced the launch of its new Tempo Books add-on for enhanced budget, utilization, and billing management capabilities to empower enterprises of all sizes.
Used alone with JIRA or along with other Tempo add-ons for JIRA, including the award winning Tempo Timesheets, Tempo Planner, and Tempo Folio solutions, Tempo Books gives executives, account managers, and project managers transparent and centralized value and revenue tracking, as well as better team, project, and customer account management capabilities. Tempo Books delivers visual, real-time data and custom reporting for strategic decision-making.
“With Tempo Books, our goal is to supply managers in consulting services with a good analytical tool to both compare revenue against set budgets and get a good overview of all of their teams' time allocation,” said Sveinbjorn Palsson, Product Manager of Tempo Books. “We see Tempo Books as a solution for one of the missing links that JIRA users are experiencing today, where the work is transformed into accountable, billable data.”
"Tempo Books gives us and our customers high-level financial information in JIRA, enabling us to budget and manage costs and income associated with our projects, to track our key performance indicators, and to help us to better define and measure our organizational progress,” Agust Einarsson, Tempo’s CEO, said. “Used along with Tempo Timesheets, Tempo Planner, and Tempo Folio, we have complete transparency of the work performed across our teams and can maintain a continuous value flow to maximize the return on our investments."
Key highlights of the new Tempo Books solution for JIRA include:
Billing management features translate cost rates and JIRA worklog data into quantifiable value, allowing businesses to centrally manage customer billing in JIRA.
Customizable revenue reporting provide clear summaries to monitor profitability and progress according to strategic planning and help ensure that business targets are met or exceeded.
Budget tracking features give easy access to account information and display whether budgets are under-performing or headed over-target.
Utilization reports help businesses better assess and manage team efficiency by tracking overall worked versus billable time.
Clear customer and account overviews enable executives and account managers to quickly and visually identify risks and make better decisions regarding organizational resources.
Enterprise features, including JIRA Data Center support, flexible licensing, granular permissions settings, and a robust API for boundless integration options help ensure that Tempo Books will scale as businesses grow.
