Microsoft extends its alliance with HMS Software for a 24th year!

We’re delighted to announce that Microsoft and HMS have renewed their technical alliance for the 2019/2020 season. This relationship is one of the oldest technical alliances in the computer industry and it is still going strong today.

This will be the 24th year that the two firms have had a formal technical alliance partnership.

The relationship between Microsoft and HMS evolved in the two and a half decades we have worked together.  Our TimeControl timesheet system is now linked to so many Microsoft technologies from Windows Server to SharePoint and SharePoint Online and Dynamics and, of course Project.  Beyond that, it is the relationships between staff in the two companies that is so remarkable.

HMS and Microsoft have done marketing together, sales together, development and technical support together.

This year so far, HMS Software has qualified as a partner in the Project and Portfolio Management category.  To qualify for these programs, HMS went through Microsoft’s rigorous 3rd party testing and had a number of staff members pass Microsoft Certified Professional certifications.  We expect that this is the first of what will be several Microsoft Partner certifications it will achieve this year.

We have created a resources portal to help identify which Microsoft technologies can be advantageous when using TimeControl. The portal includes numerous resources including white papers, webcasts, PowerPoint presentations and more. The TimeControl Microsoft Technology Portal can be found at: Microsoft.TimeControl.com.
