Oracle-Primavera EPPM administrators know that a Primavera timesheet for task updates is already included when you purchase the EPPM Team Member license. But there are many business scenarios where using a third party timesheet will maximize your Primavera effectiveness.
TimeControl is a multi-function timesheet that is already integrated to both Oracle-Primavera EPPM and Primavera Pro. It was created to bring timesheet functionality even further.
Imagine one or more of these scenarios:
You need a timesheet but you are using Primavera Pro on the desktop, not EPPM on the server or in the cloud
TimeControl already includes complete integration with both Primavera EPPM and Primavera Pro on the desktop. You can support as many desktop users as you wish and even have a mix of EPPM projects and remotely managed projects on Primavera Professional integrated at the same time.
Your rates are different per client or per project or per task
TimeControl has extensive rate management functionality allowing an individual to have an unlimited number of rate codes. An employee can have different rates for different projects, different rates for different roles on the same project or different rates for different tasks all on the same timesheet. Not only that, but for each of those rate codes you can maintain multiple values so tracking the internal cost, billing value and average project cost can be done all at the same time.
You use Roles rather than individuals in Primavera for Resource Scheduling
TimeControl supports the notion of work at the role level, the generic resource level and the individual.
You are working at a different level than the project tasks
TimeControl allows you to summarize Primavera activities into higher level TimeControl Charge Codes or to summarize TimeControl Charge Codes to Primavera activities. This lets the timesheet function at a different level than the project schedule.
Same timesheet for Primavera and Payroll and HR and Billing and R&D Tax Credits…
This is TimeControl’s key design feature. It is an auditable timesheet that is designed to be multi-purpose. TimeControl fulfills multiple timesheet requirements from the same timesheet at the same time. It’s perfect for Finance, HR, Payroll, Billing, and governance as well as integrated with Primavera.
You need to enter timesheets for a whole crew at a time not just individuals
Need to enter a high volume of timesheet data for field personnel who don’t even have access to a computer? TimeControl Industrial is our field data collection version which allows you to enter Crew Timesheets, Material consumption, Equipment usage and even production accomplished and integrate that information with Primavera.
