Leading Global Software Firm Rolls Out First-of-its-Kind Time Management System, Targets World’s Growing Mobile Workforce
Leading global time management expert HMS Software – publishers of the TimeControl timesheet system – has announced the release of TimeControl version 7.4.1, a first-of-its-kind system targeting medium to large enterprises and their mobile workers. With nearly half of the total global workforce expected to be comprised of mobile employees by 2022, the newest release of TimeControl delivers unprecedented smartphone and tablet features, enabling users to do much more from their devices than simply collect time.
“This release represents a major leap forward in functionality,” 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 – allows users to create, view, edit and approve timesheet data, as well as perform historical searches, right from their phones. “With every new release of our product we reinvent the way companies manage their time,” Vandersluis said.
Additional new features found in TimeControl 7.4.1 – 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:
-Support for multiple timesheet periods at once, meaning some parts of an organization can start their timesheets on a Sunday and others on a Monday, while other parts can choose to use a bi-weekly, bi-monthly or other length of timesheet, making it possible for large global companies to operate efficiently from one single timesheet.
-Unparalleled flexibility in how charge codes are displayed with the launch of a new Hierarchy view that allows the configuration and display of timesheet charges to be selectable for each part of an organization while maintaining a common enterprise view in the background.
-Major changes to the TimeControl Application Programmable Interface (API) that make it easier to integrate the software with other mission-critical corporate systems such as Finance, ERP and Project Management.
TimeControl was originally released in 1994 and was immediately successful in the project management sector. Today it is a comprehensive enterprise timesheet solution used by companies worldwide. TimeControl is designed as a multipurpose timesheet able to serve the needs of both Finance and Project Management simultaneously. Features include: a multi-browser, multi-device interface; vacation approvals; executive dashboards; extensive approval functionality; flexible reporting and integration with other project management and corporate systems. TimeControl is available both as an in-the-cloud subscription service and for purchase for an on-premises installation.
TimeControl 7.4.1 will be upgraded automatically for TimeControl Online subscription clients. 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: TimeControl.com/support/updates. A free Hosted TimeControl Trial is available at freetrial.timecontrol.com. For further information about HMS Software, please visit http://www.hms.ca or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
