HMS software updates partner program
Leading provider of enterprise timesheet management system expands partner opportunities
Montreal, February 24, 2009 - HMS Software, a leading provider of project management and enterprise timesheet solutions, has announced a new technical and marketing partner program designed to extend the types of partnerships available with the company.
"We've had technical alliance partners and marketing alliance partners since the inception of the company," says Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS Software. "With the release of our TimeControl enterprise timesheet system in 1994, this effort focused more on recruiting full-service dealers. Now we'd like to extend the TimeControl partner program to identify other types of partnerships."
HMS Software's dealer program has 23 full service value-added-resellers of HMS Software's representing the popular TimeControl timesheet system in 47 countries around the world. The TimeControl Dealer Program has focused on locating and enrolling organizations already experienced with enterprise project management and the implementation of enterprise systems.
"We're very proud of our dealer network," Vandersluis explains. "If you were to add up all the companies served by all of our dealers, it represents some of the largest and most prestigious companies in the world. Our new program will allow us to extend our reach to service organizations which are able to recommend TimeControl yet not have to become a full-service dealer in order to benefit from doing so."
The new HMS Software Partner Program identifies 4 levels of partner:
TimeControl Full Service Dealer
A TimeControl Full Service Dealer is empowered by HMS Software to resell TimeControl. HMS has recruited some of the most knowledgeable and experienced implementers of enterprise systems in different markets as our full service resellers. These TimeControl Dealers can provide TimeControl along with the associated services required to make a TimeControl deployment a success. Often these same suppliers are known for their experience in deploying systems that can link directly with TimeControl. HMS makes sure that our TimeControl Dealers have access to the very latest in product and technical information about TimeControl.
HMS Software Strategic Partner
HMS Software has established Strategic Partners which provide HMS with technology or which have technology with which TimeControl integrates. These organizations are among the most known in the technology industry including Microsoft, Oracle and Deltek.
TimeControl Alliance Partner
The TimeControl Alliance Partners who HMS work with on a regular basis recommend TimeControl to their clients and are compensated for doing so. These Alliance Partners have skills either in enterprise timesheet or enterprise project management and have identified TimeControl as a potential solution for their client base. HMS works with our Alliance Partners to ensure they have the latest information on TimeControl and collaborate with them to assist throughout the selection and acquisition process. Once TimeControl has been acquired, HMS works with the Alliance Partner to ensure the deployment goes smoothly and that the deployment partner has access to whatever technical or feature-based information is required to make the deployment a success.
TimeControl Associate Partner
HMS works with key Associate Partners to help create the solutions we bring to you. These technology or service Partners are organizations with which we maintain a strong relationship and include some of the most respected names in the technology industry. TimeControl Associate Partners have a reciprocal marketing agreement with HMS.
"We believe our new Partner Program will expand the number of quality companies who are associated with TimeControl and HMS Software and will result in better overall services to our clients," says Storm Leutner, Director of Operations at HMS. "The new types of partners allow us to keep more technology and project management firms informed about the latest developments with TimeControl and that means prospective and existing clients can be kept up to date with what we believe is one of the best timesheets on the market."
