TM Software Roles Out Two New Add-Ons for Atlassian's JIRA Platform

TM software, known for its highly successful JIRA business add-on, Tempo Timesheets, has come up with two new products, Tempo Planner and Tempo Books.

Atlassian’s JIRA is used for bug tracking, issue tracking and project management. By adding its own time tracking capabilities into JIRA, Tempo Timesheets helps round out JIRA as a complete professional services solution for businesses. The JIRA- Tempo Timesheets combination has helped scores of teams and organizations across the globe achieve greater efficiency, transparency, cost savings, and control over their operations, such as for billing, payroll, forecasting and cost analysis.

According to a news statement, Tempo is now used by more than 3,700 organizations in over 90 countries worldwide, and was voted the best Atlassian Marketplace add-on of 2012 by Atlassian. Tempo Timesheets is available in the following languages: English (US/UK), French, German, Polish, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Czech, Russian, Turkish, Chinese, Japanese, and Norwegian.

The newly launched product, Tempo Planner can be used alone or in tandem with Tempo’s suite of JIRA add-ons. This new add-on is designed to equip JIRA users with deeper project management and planning capabilities, GreenHopper integration, and business analytics.

Tempo Books may also be used alone or in tandem with Tempo’s suite of JIRA add-ons. This new add on is designed to simplify the tasks of cost and expense budgeting for JIRA projects. With its rate and wage management, client billing and invoicing assistance capabilities, Tempo Books has been designed to give a “whole new meaning to tracking value in JIRA,” its maker said in a news statement.

“Tempo and JIRA are a great combination at any company. Even if you don’t currently think you need to track time, I would strongly recommend you develop that culture. It’s a culture of communicating, and it helps everyone make decisions about how they use their time. The most important tool that any leader has is simply how we use our time. If we don’t know what we’re doing, then we can’t make decisions about how to use this most precious resource,” director of engineering at Balfour Michael Rainwater noted in a statement.

Recently Atlassian launched version 5 of JIRA, which offers a social product development platform that connects people, applications and activity to accelerate the software development process. New social features such as mentions, sharing and live activity streams immediately bring users into real-time discussions.
