“This new version of TimeControl Industrial is significant the project management industry,” said HMS Software President Chris Vandersluis, noting that the new mobile interface for the TimeControl Mobile app – available to Google Play for Android device users and on the Apple Store for iOS users – has been enhanced with mobile functions specific to the Industrial version of TimeControl. “We are committed to empowering workers on the go with the innovations in TimeControl Industrial Version 8,” Vandersluis said.
New features in TimeControl 8 – a multi-function system that includes support for Time and Attendance, Time and Billing, Project Tracking, Human Resource Tracking, and Research Tax Credit Tracking – include:
Crew Timesheets in TimeControl Mobile
TimeControl 8 includes the free TimeControl Mobile App and TimeControl Industrial users can, for the first, time create and edit Crew Timesheets and edit Crew members while mobile. With nearly half of the total global workforce expected to be comprised of mobile employees by 2022, these new features in TimeControl Industrial Mobile will be welcome.
Manage Crews in TimeControl Mobile
Not only can supervisors and team leaders create crew timesheets while on the go, they can also use the TimeControl Mobile App to update team members. A team lead who is out in the field with their crew can start their shift by updating their crew and then updating Crew Timesheet information as the day progresses no matter where they are.
Support for TimeControl Mobile when disconnected from the Internet
TimeControl Mobile has been enhanced so that if connection to the Internet is interrupted; something that can occur more frequently in remote construction sites, the App will continue functioning and will automatically syncronize with the central application as soon as a connection is re-established.
The TimeControl Mobile App includes dynamic data analysis for management of all timesheet data under their control. Instant graphics in numerous formats will enable rapid decision making based on where time is being spent.
All new Resource Planning
All new Resource Planning functionality that allows an organization to not only track actuals but make plans directly in the system of where resources will be required. This will allow planned vs. actual reporting with the already-extensive timesheet actuals.
The upgrade is available to existing on-premise clients with a current support and maintenance agreement at no additional charge from the TimeControl upgrades site at: TimeControl.com/support/updates. TimeControl Industrial 8 will be upgraded automatically for TimeControl Online subscription clients in mid-July.
