Valiantys VertygoSLA powers JIRA Service Desk SLAs
We are happy to announce that Atlassian has acquired VertygoSLA from Valiantys. VertygoSLA is a leading add-on for JIRA in the Atlassian Marketplace that allows organisations to track their service level agreements (SLAs) for acknowledgement times or resolution times.
VertygoSLA is incorporated into JIRA Service Desk, the latest service desk offering from Atlassian. Most of the features in VertygoSLA will continue to be available in JIRA Service Desk, but redesigned with a completely new, streamlined user interface that closely integrates service level agreements with the rest of the JIRA Service Desk offering. With the power of VertygoSLA, JIRA Service Desk allows you to set up advanced SLA metrics, report on performance in real-time and drive your team forward with highly visible SLA priorities.
VertygoSLA will no longer be offered for sale separately from 2nd October 2013.

As of JIRA Service Desk 1.1, working hour calendars are supported
