HMS Software joins Oracle Partner Program

MONTREAL - December 21, 1999 - HMS Software joins the Oracle Partner program on the strength of its flagship product TimeControl®.

The Oracle Partner program recognises products and companies which have been designed to function with Oracle products. As an enterprise timekeeping system designed to function with Oracle 7 and Oracle 8, TimeControl was ideally suited to these qualifications. HMS has a large number of TimeControl installations already using Oracle as the data repository. TimeControl has supported Oracle database technology since 1997.

"Joining the Oracle Partner program is a strategic move for us," says Chris Vandersluis, president of HMS Software. "We've been a long-term supporter of Oracle and this alliance allows us to give our existing and future clients even better service when they install TimeControl into an Oracle environment."

"As an activity-based-costing solution, TimeControl is called upon for widespread distribution within mid to large-sized organisations. Being a part of the Oracle Partner program lets our clients know that we support one of the largest database environments available.

As a member of the Oracle Partner program, HMS Software will now be listed in the Oracle Application Solutions Guide which is available on-line at
