AUSTIN, Texas – July 21, 2021 — Planview, a global leader in Portfolio Management and Work Management solutions, today reported record revenue and bookings in Q2 2021 continuing a trend of strong momentum and growth in 2021. Bookings for the second quarter of the year were at a record high, and total bookings in the first half of 2021 increased 40 percent year-over-year on a consolidated basis.
