We’re always delighted when clients let us know how TimeControl has made a difference. This month, we are able to share with you a case study of Aegion Corp. who has been a TimeControl Industrial client since 2014. HMS and Aegion collaborated on this case study for several weeks. It shows the results of interviews with several Aegion clients including the CIO, Thys Lourens. Aegion is a Missouri based pipeline services company.
Aegion selected TimeControl Industrial for its ability to enable field data collection and reports in this case study that by using TimeControl they have been able to improve overall productivity.

In the lastest updated of TimeControl, enhancements to the free TimeControl Mobile App include new functionality for Crews. When the Mobile App links to a TimeControl Industrial license, additional functionality becomes available. Providing that the user has security profile access to these functions, they can now create, and edit a Crew Timesheet. In addition, the user can Approve or Reject Crew Timesheets as part of the approval process.
The Mobile App also allows the user to Add or Remove Crew Team Members.
Field Data Collection often occurs in areas where Internet services are spotty. If a connection is lost, the TimeControl Mobile App continues working offline until the Internet is restored and then synchronizes with the main TimeControl system.
The TimeControl Mobile App is available at no charge on the Google Play Store for Android phones and tablets and on the Apple App Store for iOS devices.

We’re very excited to announce the formation of a strategic alliance with ARES PRISM who are the publishers of enterprise project control software. ARES PRISM focuses on cost control, forecasting, change management and performance measurement and TimeControl focuses on project actual labor, material and equipment usage data collection. This makes a powerful case for bringing these two suites of functionality together.
Teams from the two firms are already hard at work finalizing integration tools between the respective products.
Our President, Chris Vandersluis explains that “This is a situation where one-plus-one equals much more than two. Our joint clients will enjoy the power of TimeControl’s multi-purpose timesheet and field data collection system matched with enterprise level forecasting and analysis. We think our clients and prospective clients are going to be very excited about what comes of this new partnership.
Dates for the complete integration have not yet been announced but it is expected shortly.
