New Tempo Cloud for JIRA
In 2016, Tempo embarked on its most ambitious project to date: to create a brand new version of Tempo Cloud for JIRA. With the introduction of Atlassian’s new cloud platform, Atlassian Connect, which allows for better customization and full control over production and deployment for add-ons, we saw an opportunity to narrow our focus and improve our products to cater better to customer needs.
Our new Tempo Cloud for JIRA was first enabled on the Atlassian Marketplace in late November 2016, built from the ground up with the Atlassian Connect framework alongside a new user interface and scalability that will serve our customers far into the future.
Revenue improved by 41% year-on-year
Tempo’s annual earnings increased by 41% year-on-year, fueled by double digit rate growth across the board of the company’s products:
Tempo Planner (resource management and planning) +82% YoY
Tempo Budgets (portfolio financial management) +46% YoY
Tempo Timesheets (time tracking) +37% YoY
Tempo Cloud +65% YoY
North America operation continues to grow
The number of employees at Tempo grew by 41% in 2016. We added 20 new employees in our offices in North America, both in Montreal and San Francisco, bringing the total number of Tempo employees to 90.
Almost 2800 new customers acquired
Bringing Tempo close to the 10,000 customer mark since its launch almost a decade ago, 2016 saw a substantial increase of almost 2800 new customers, including Starbucks, Texas Instruments, the Government of British Columbia, Estee Lauder, Porsche, and many more.
Over 120 partners worldwide
Collaborative growth is key to the strength of Tempo and in 2016, our Atlassian Expert partner network grew to a total of over 120 partners worldwide. Tempo is looking forward to fostering and strengthening partnerships with both existing and potential partners as well as customers in 2017.

Donated over $75,000 to the non-profit Room to Read, calculated from all proceeds from our 10-user starter license sales. Room to Read seeks to improve literacy and gender equality in education in the developing world.
At the beginning of December, we continued striving towards empowering more children in developing countries with an education through Room to Read. Our starter license program was priced at $100, 10-user licenses, which enabled us to increase the amount of donation from all the proceeds.
