We’re delighted to announce that HMS and Microsoft have renewed their technical alliance . HMS has been a Microsoft certified partner for 12 years now but our relationship is much longer. We’re very proud to enjoy our 20th anniversary as a Microsoft solutions partner.
HMS became an inaugural member of the Microsoft Project Solution Partner program in 1995. The link between the first version of TimeControl and Microsoft Project prompted the Microsoft Project team and HMS to work together then and ever since.”
TimeControl has had an integration with every version of Microsoft Project since 1995 and with Microsoft Project Server since it was first launched in 2002. In 2006 Microsoft named HMS a “First to Market” partner for our work integrating TimeControl with Project Server.
This year we have renewed our Microsoft Partner certifications in both the Application Development and Project and Portfolio Management. To qualify for these programs, HMS has had to demonstrate success integrating TimeControl with Microsoft Project and Project Server with client testimonials and to have multiple HMS personnel pass Microsoft Project and Project Server testing. In addition, HMS had TimeControl successfully pass external 3rd party testing which is part of the Microsoft Partner Network program.
Microsoft technology is used to deliver both TimeControl and HMS Software’s in-the-cloud TimeControl Online service functionality but what technologies are used can vary from client to client. Windows Server is the platform for the server and some clients will combine that with Microsoft Project or Project Server, SharePoint or SQL Server.
We’re highly committed to the Microsoft relationship because it enables us to provide the best possible solutions to our clients.
We’ve create a portal to help you identify which Microsoft technology you can take advantage of when using TimeControl. The Portal includes links to many different HMS and Microsoft resources including white papers, webcasts, PowerPoint presentations and more.
