Best Customer Solution
ACA IT-Solutions created a custom program for capacity and demand planning with Tempo Planner and Tempo Teams for the marketing communications department of a large Belgian retailer. The marketing department is responsible for most, if not all of the company's campaigns (big and small). These include digital campaigns on the internet or via regular media, and all the tangible marketing assets found in their many stores around the country, and in brochures distributed to customers through regular mail.
More than 30 teams inside the department are managed as Tempo Teams. Based on team roles, work schedules and holidays are planned against internal issues. The solution allows the company to calculate and display the capacity of all teams down to role level. On the demand side, templates define the work breakdown of common assignments. These templates contain the definition of a certain type of work and have a breakdown of expected lead times.
On top of that was a written custom app to calculate and assign both capacity and demand over time, which is imported into EazyBI via REST endpoints. This lets the retailer generate demand/capacity reports that enable planners to identify bottlenecks in the organization and identify areas of improvement.
“For as long as I can remember, Tempo has been the reference when it comes to tracking time in Jira. Over the years, we’ve built a really valuable partnership as well, where we know questions are heard and challenges discussed in a timely, professional and pleasant atmosphere,” said Walter Buggenhout, Atlassian Ambassador, ACA IT-Solutions. “And that is very much beneficial for our solutions team as well as for the customers we serve together.”

"Twybee and Tempo Software have been strong partners for two years and counting,” said Manon Soubies-Camy, Co-founder, Twybee. “Tempo solutions help our customers to better manage their planning and measure the profitability of their projects."
