HMS and Oracle renew ties again at the Gold Level
Montréal, May 14, 2013 - The technical alliance that is made possible by the Oracle Partner Network allows both HMS and Oracle to offer a richer suite of functionality to their joint clients. Oracle clients can also work with TimeControl secure in the knowledge that HMS works properly on the Oracle architecture.
"Being a Gold Partner in the Oracle Partner Network gives HMS access to Oracle products and personnel in a way that delivers direct benefit to our clients," explains Stephen Eyton-Jones, HMS Software's Director of Technical Services. "Our link to Oracle-Primavera can be tested instantly when new versions become."
Clients are able to move data bi-directionally between Oracle-Primavera and TimeControl completely in the background and provide financial quality timesheet data to both Primavera for task updating and various financial modules of the organization such as payroll, HR, job costing or invoicing."
HMS Software became a Primavera Technology partner in 1997 based on the integration of its TimeControl timesheet software which has pre-configured links to move data to and from Primavera's project management products. 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.
This completely configurable link between TimeControl and Oracle Primavera allows for project, task, resource and assignment information to be moved from the project management system and actual hours, costs and task progress to move from TimeControl back to Oracle Primavera.
TimeControl is ideally suited to an organization which wishes to implement Oracle Primavera and to collect timesheet data to update both Primavera and central systems such as Payroll, Billing, Human Resources and Job Costing.
Some of TimeControl's value-added benefits when linking with Oracle Primavera include: multiple rates per employee, simultaneous support for multiple versions of Oracle Primavera, both a browser and mobile/tablet interface and matrix timesheet approvals with HMS's unique Matrix Approval Process for Labor Actuals™.
This process allows project managers to be able to approve hours task-by-task and departmental supervisors to approve hours and costs with an unlimited number of approval levels.
"The relationship between HMS Software and Oracle is one that is very important to us, "says Vandersluis. "It is one of the longest standing technical relationships in the industry and we are very proud to be an Oracle Gold Partner once again this year."
Some of the organizations who have already adopted TimeControl to work with Oracle-Primavera's systems include the Atlanta Hartsfield Airport, Koch Industries, Opal-RT, Norascon, Standard Life, Acergy, and Aegion.
