December 22, 2021

Latest acquisition combines top-selling Atlassian project management solution with team and time management solutions to help product-led organizations unify capacity and complex product delivery

Tempo Software, the leader in team time management and productivity-enhancing solutions, today announced the acquisition of ALM Works, developer of the Structure for Jira software suite that enables project and program managers to make better decisions, work more efficiently, and deliver predictable results. A top-selling project management solution, ALM Works helps over 5000 organizations worldwide visualize, track and manage progress across large-scale, complex projects. Tempo and ALM Works together will provide the first suite of purpose-built program management apps to meet project, program and portfolio management needs for over 70 million users within the Atlassian Ecosystem. 

The combination of Tempo’s team time and capacity management solutions and ALM Works’ project and artifact structuring solutions will enable program managers to easily understand whether key initiatives are on track and meeting strategic objectives. A recent Tempo survey showed that 55% of software development executives reported that they use time tracking insights to inform project and portfolio management. This new combination of Tempo and ALM Works will provide organizations with the visibility required to move between strategy and daily execution, make informed decisions, and share progress with executives and stakeholders. 

“For over a decade, ALM Works has set themselves apart within the Atlassian Ecosystem due to their focused efforts on helping bring structure to complex project data,” said Mark Lorion, CEO, Tempo Software. “Through an even tighter integration with ALM Works, we are excited to bring a modern, easy-to-use and scalable program management solution to market and to our many shared customers and partners. Together we will uniquely support the teams who operate within Jira on a daily basis and provide the data that senior leadership teams need to be responsive as they set product strategy for an organization.” 

“ALM Works focuses on enabling project and program managers to solve complex problems with our flexible, adaptable Structure solution,” said Igor Sereda, ALM Works CEO. “By bringing ALM Works together with Tempo’s industry-leading time tracking and productivity management suite of products, we’re now well-positioned to deliver the most comprehensive program and portfolio management offering to the market. I am proud of the work our team has accomplished over the past 17 years and look forward to bringing visibility and strategic insights to even more people and teams.”

Combined with the recent acquisition of Roadmunk, the addition of ALM Works strengthens Tempo’s strategic portfolio management offering. As a modern and integrated solution suite, Tempo will meet the growing needs of today’s distributed and complex product organizations who need to project, plan, and adapt based on timely organizational capacity data and insights.
