TimeControl was born in a projectized world. Long before TimeControl became a commercial product, HMS Software's first mandate in 1984 included the creation of a timesheet that would serve both Project Management and Finance simultaneously. The core philosophy created from that timesheet system is embedded in what would become a worldwide phenomenom in 1994 with the launch of TimeControl.
TimeControl is the most integrated project timesheet system on the market today. Designed as a highly flexible system, it is able to integrate with multiple project management systems as well as with corporate financial and administration systems and services including HR, Payroll, Billing, Estimating, Job Costing and your ERP. Integrating TimeControl with both your project management and corporate systems allows you to have a single timesheet entry serving multiple purposes.
After all, isn't doing one timesheet a week enough?
HMS Software has maintained long standing alliances with the most popular project scheduling tools in the industry. Our relationship with the Microsoft Project team stretches back to 1995 making HMS one of the longest standing software partners in the world of Microsoft Project. Our relationship with both Primavera and Oracle goes back to 1997 making us one of the longest standing software partners of the Primavera project scheduling line. Our relationship with the Open Plan product line goes all the way back to 1984. Open Plan is now a Deltek product and HMS is a Deltek ISV partner. We are also a Hard Dollar technical alliance partner and we maintain other technical alliances with numerous companies in the project management industry.
TimeControl includes integration to all of these powerful project scheduling and cost control tools:
Microsoft Project Standard and Professional
TimeControl links to both Microsoft Project and Project Server and supports a mixed environment where multiple versions can be supported simultaneously. TimeControl has had a link to Microsoft Project since 1995.
Microsoft Project and Project Server
TimeControl links to both Microsoft Project, Project Server and Project Online and supports a mixed environment where multiple versions can be supported simultaneously. TimeControl has had a link to every version of Microsoft Project Server since it was first launched in 2002.
TimeControl has had a link to Primavera's scheduling systems since 1997. Indeed, some of our largest deployments of TimeControl have been done in conjunction with Primavera's products. We maintain links from TimeControl with every Primavera scheduling system version from P3 to the current version of both Primavera Pro and Primavera EPPM.
TimeControl and ARES PRISM have been designed to integrate together. Where ARES PRISM has the project controls, estimating and analysis functionality, TimeControl has the auditable multi-purpose labor collection ability. When these tools are put together, the combination makes for a powerful project control environment.
TimeControl includes a bi-directional link to the popular task management system JIRA. JIRA is a task management and project management system from Atlassian. It is best known in the Agile project management world and is available from Atlassian as a service or as an on-premise implementation. For developers and other technical users using JIRA now, timesheets can pose a challenge. TimeControl solves that challenge with this integration.
Deltek's Open Plan and Cobra
TimeControl got its start in the mid-80s as customized code written for our very first customer who needed to integrate a timeshet with Open Plan. TimeControl is a Deltek ISV (Independent Software Vendor) partner and maintains links between TimeControl and both Deltek Open Plan and Cobra.
TimeControl includes a bi-directional link to the popular BrightWork collaborative project and portfolio management system. BrightWork users can see their projects and tasks automatically in TimeControl and their assignments can be pre-loaded into new timesheets. The updated timesheet information can be sent back to BrightWork at the task level or a summary level to update the SharePoint-based system on demand or on schedule. The link works with both the online and on-premise versions of BrightWork and with TimeControl, TimeControl Industrial and TimeControl Online.
Integrating TimeControl Industrial and Hard Dollar's HD project estimating and cost control system makes for a powerful project control environment. Bring Field Data Collection with TimeControl Industrial together with extensive cost modeling that comes with HD. Extend your integration even further by integrating scheduling with Oracle-Primavera or Microsoft Project to provide a complete picture of your projects.
TimeControl and Version One have collaborated to design the TimeControl/VersionOne Integration. TimeControl includes a bi-directional link with the popular Agile project management system that allows enterprise timekeeping to link with sprint, maintenance and other tasks and update the tasks with actual hours from the corporate timesheet.
