TimeControl Online Service supports International Data Locations

TimeControl Online, HMS Software’s Timesheet as a Service in the cloud allows clients to locate their data in numerous international locations to support international data privacy laws.

Montreal, Canada, October 13, 2020 – TimeControl Online is HMS Software’s Timesheet subscription service in the cloud. It has operated continuously since 2011 and is used by hundreds of organizations and tens of thousands of users worldwide. Since the adoption by the European Union of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), HMS has offered a “Data Location Option” for TimeControl data to be located in one of a number of countries to comply with local privacy regulations.

“Data Location isn’t critical for many organizations,” explains Chris Vandersluis, HMS Software’s President. “TimeControl is, after all, a service that is provided on a business-to-business basis directly to organizations and not directly to clients. However, for organizations where data location is critical, we are happy to provide the Data Location Service.”

HMS currently offers their Data Location Service as an annual option to their TimeControl Online subscription system. Currently, HMS has data locations offered in the US, Canada, The UK, Europe and Australia but other locations are possible.

“TimeControl Online is leveraged through Amazon Web Services,” says Stephen Eyton-Jones, the HMS Software Director of Technical Services. “The system is already a multi-server environment so locating data in one of Amazon’s many data centers while maintaining the underlying architecture and security is reasonably simple from a technical standpoint.”

The Data Location Option of TimeControl Online is available to any client on an annual basis. Fees differ based on the number of users and location selected.
