HMS and Oracle have renewed their technical partnership for a nineteenth consecutive year. Oracle has just named HMS as an Oracle Gold Partner for the 2016-2017 season. We’re delighted with our long standing and evolving Oracle relationship.
The alliance between HMS Software and Oracle dates back to the mid-1990’s. HMS initially joined the Oracle partner program in 1997 because of the development of TimeControl version 3 so we could properly support the Oracle database. That year marked the start of another technical alliance, this one between HMS and Primavera. We joined the Primavera Partner program to properly support the integration between HMS Software’s TimeControl’s and Primavera’s project management software. When Oracle purchased Primavera many years later, these two initiatives blended together to form a much richer relationship with deep and enduring ties.
The TimeControl timesheet system now supports many different products that have become part of the Oracle family including the MySQL database and links between TimeControl, Oracle EBS, PeopleSoft and JD Edwards. We work regularly with Oracle to support our clients.
The Oracle Partner program in which HMS has been named as a Gold Partner again this year allows software publishers such as HMS to work directly with Oracle to more effectively bring products and services to each other’s clients. Thanks to our status in the Oracle Partner program our integration with Oracle-Primavera P6, for example, can be tested on pre-release versions.
Some of TimeControl’s value-added benefits when linking with Oracle Primavera include: multiple rates per employee, automated business rule validations, automated workflow, missing timesheet notification, simultaneous support for multiple versions of Oracle Primavera, both a browser and mobile/tablet interface and matrix timesheet approvals with HMS’s unique Matrix Approval Process for Labor Actuals™.
We are proud to be an Oracle Gold Partner once again this year and look forward to our relationship evolving for many years to come.
