HMS Software completes compatibility testing with Microsoft Project Desktop 2019
Montreal, Mar 4, 2019 - HMS Software, the publisher of TimeControl, one of the world's most popular timesheet systems has announced today that they have completed testing on the integration of TimeControl with Microsoft’s latest version of Project for the Desktop. This continues an unbroken integration of TimeControl with every version of Microsoft Project since 1995. The relationship between HMS and Microsoft is one of the oldest technical alliances in the software industry.
“Integration with Microsoft Project is an essential element for TimeControl,” says Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS Software. “While many currently focus on Microsoft’s Project Server, we know there are millions of licenses of Project Desktop in the market and delivering an integrated centralized timesheet that can link to them is how TimeControl is best known. We’re proud that TimeControl has had the longest standing integration with Microsoft Project of any tool in any category in the industry.”
HMS Software’s TimeControl timesheet has had an integration with every version of Microsoft Project on the desktop since 1995. The integration has evolved with new versions of Project. The link currently supports Microsoft Project, Microsoft Project Online, Microsoft Project Server and with many other Microsoft products like SharePoint and Excel.
Integrating TimeControl with Microsoft Project gives a single source of timesheet entry for multiple purposes. TimeControl’s auditable, multi-purpose design means the timesheet can be used not only for updating Microsoft Project with hours, costs, material and equipment consumption and task progress but also for updating Payroll, HR, Billing, Job costing, R&D tax audit tracking, Defense Contract Audit Agency Compliance and much more.
“Working with Microsoft has evolved over the years and I’m pleased to say that I’ve been here for it from the beginning,” explains Stephen Eyton-Jones, HMS Software’s Director of Technical Services who has been with HMS since 1989. “With the latest version of Microsoft Project we’ve put the integration through extensive testing to ensure that the movement of data to and from Project works properly and accurately.”
