An Open Letter to our Customers and Partners from Tim Mulron & Jon Terry

Today, we are excited to announce that LeanKit has been acquired by Planview, and we are joining the Planview portfolio of work and resource management (WRM) solutions.

By combining our two like-minded cultures, and by building on both of our companies’ strong commitment to serving our customers, we see an incredible opportunity to enable organizations to communicate, innovate, and deliver faster -- not only at the team level, but also up and across the entire organization.

At LeanKit, our goal has always been to support you, our customers and partners, in solving your toughest challenges at work. Joining Planview will significantly expand our ability to achieve that goal for you.

Planview is the global leader in work and resource management. They provide solutions designed for strategic planning, portfolio and resource management, product innovation, capability and technology management, Lean and Agile delivery, and collaborative work management. Like us, they seek to help their customers connect strategy with execution -- one of the many reasons why we believe that Planview complements LeanKit so well.

Moving forward, we will maintain our commitment to delivering new features and providing the customer support we always have, so you can continue to rely on LeanKit every day to manage work and collaborate with your teams. All of us at LeanKit and Planview are committed to making this transition as smooth as possible for you. If you have any questions about how this transition affects your LeanKit account, please contact your account representative.

Whether you’ve been with LeanKit from the beginning or just recently joined us, we’d like to sincerely thank you for being our valued customers and partners. Since 2009, you’ve been the reason we’ve come to work every day, and we look forward to continuing to serve you as part of the Planview family.

Thank you,

Tim and Jon
