HMS Software and Projects/Applications Resources Group announce Strategic Alliance partnership

Publishers of TimeControl collaborate with Projects/Applications Resources Group to provide enhanced services with TimeControl and Oracle/Projects

Montreal, June 25, 2010 - HMS Software, a leading provider of project management and enterprise timesheet solutions, has announced a new strategic alliance partnership with Projects/Applications Resources Group; a specialist in Oracle EBS implementations with a particular focus on the Oracle Projects and Oracle Financials Applications.

"This is a great technical partnership for us," explains Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS. "The PAR Group has over 20 years' experience just like HMS does and they are specialists in the financial side of the project management paradigm where HMS has the matching extensive experience in project management and timesheets. Both companies have clients and industry experience in common."

With the acquisition of Primavera by Oracle, the combination of TimeControl, Primavera and Oracle Financials has become even more significant. Primavera provides the high-end project functionality. Oracle Projects and Oracle Financials provide the accounting, job costing and billing ERP functionality. And, TimeControl provides the enterprise-wide timesheet functionality designed to link with both Primavera and Oracle Projects.

Combining the skills of HMS Software, its partners and the Projects/Applications Resources Group means that clients who wish to implement all three systems will be able to work with experts in all three of these domains at once.

"We're very excited about working with HMS and their TimeControl timesheet system," says Patricia Bowyer, President of the Projects/Applications Resources Group. "We have worked on a number of Oracle Projects/Primavera projects and the combination of HMS Software's expertise in enterprise timesheet functionality with their TimeControl opens new avenues of enterprise solutions for our clients."

HMS Software's relationship with Oracle stretches back to 1997 when TimeControl first supported the Oracle database. Our long-standing partner relationship with Oracle has allowed us to test new versions of TimeControl on upcoming releases of the Oracle database. HMS Software originally became a Primavera Technology partner based on the integration of our TimeControl timesheet software which has pre-configured links to move data to and from the Oracle Primavera project management system. Now Oracle Primavera clients who require more financially oriented timesheets or timesheets which are well suited for both payroll and project updating purposes can deploy the TimeControl timesheet and Oracle Primavera together.

The bi-directional link between TimeControl and Oracle Primavera allows for project, task and resource information to be moved from the project managements system and actual hours, costs and task progress to move from TimeControl back to Oracle Primavera. TimeControl's additional functionality makes the product an attractive add-on when an organization wishes to implement Oracle Primavera and to use the timesheet data to update both project management and financial systems such as Payroll, Billing, Human Resources or Job Costing. TimeControl is able to link to virtually any financial system including Oracle Financials, SAP, Timberline and Microsoft's Dynamics group of finance packages.

Some of the clients who have already adopted TimeControl to work with Oracle Primavera's systems include the Atlanta Hartsfield Airport, Koch Industries, Opal-RT, Schering-Plough, Acergy, San Mateo County and Aecon.
