Customers throughout the world rely on our predictive scheduling and real-time insights to guide decisions, navigate change and manage uncertainty.

A new home for our products and our team

I’m proud of the people at LiquidPlanner and everything we have accomplished together. Today I’m thrilled to announce another milestone; LiquidPlanner has been acquired by Tempo

For some, this company needs no introduction as they are a major player in the Atlassian Marketplace. For those who aren’t familiar, Tempo is a leading provider of portfolio management solutions with applications encompassing time management, resource planning, budgeting, strategic roadmapping, program management and more.

The unique power of LiquidPlanner’s predictive scheduling engine, built-in prioritization model, and capacity planning is a game changing addition to Tempo’s portfolio management offerings. The mutually beneficial and complementary elements of this partnership have the combined companies equipped and energized to provide lasting, differentiated value to the market. 

What does this mean for our customers?

Through this partnership, we have the means to offer our customers expanded value through new product development and integrations. 

That being said, on a day to day basis, our relationship doesn’t change. LP serves a wide range of customers and businesses of all sizes across various industries including manufacturing, software development, IT, marketing and professional services. We will continue providing the support and solutions you need to succeed in today’s business environment. 

What does this mean for our team?

I’m pleased to report the people you know and trust, who understand your business and work for you every day, continue on this journey. We wouldn’t be where we are today without their contributions.

We are grateful you chose us to support your business, and it is our privilege to continue serving you in this new chapter. 

What do we look forward to?

This is a monumental day for LiquidPlanner as we merge with Tempo’s award-winning solutions and bring our powerful capabilities to the Atlassian Marketplace. We have worked hard to build a platform that provides value to many of the world’s leading brands, including KPMG, Delta Airlines and Bayer, and now we can bring our solution to new audiences. 

With Tempo, we have the opportunity to expand and strengthen our shared mission to help teams build better, together.
