Overview of TimeControl benefits


TimeControl's interface is designed to be easy to use. We know that end-users will spend only a few minutes a week entering their timesheet so the interface must be both simple and intuitive. TimeControl is multi-device compatible, multi-browser compatible and multi-lingual. The user needs to see only those aspects of TimeControl that they must and best of all, TimeControl can eliminate the need for multiple timesheets making this the one-stop entry for all timesheet data!


Flexibility is at the core of the design philosophy of the TimeControl timesheet. From the very first custom timesheet created by HMS, delivering a commercial timesheet solution that would fulfill multiple needs was a requirement. This philosophy runs through the system architecture, interface and integration options. It is no wonder that the development staff think of "Semper Gumby" (always flexible) as their motto.

Rates/Extended Rates:

Rates can mean so many things to so many different people. When we ask prospective users about rates, we have to distinguish actual rates of pay, billing rates, balance sheet costing rates, average project rates, resource rates, bankable overtime rates and more. The response to our questions is almost always that the client wishes to accommodate multiple definitions at the same time. The TimeControl rates architecture is so adaptable that there is a free tutorial on how to create solutions that require multiple rate scenarios.
