BrightWork Announce Integration with HMS Software

June 2, 2017 by

BrightWork have teamed with the publishers of TimeControl to integrate timesheets into their project and portfolio solution for SharePoint


(Boston, MA – June 2, 2017) BrightWork are delighted to announce the availability of a new integration with TimeControl, the leading multi-purpose timesheet system from HMS Software. The integration links the TimeControl enterprise timesheet product to BrightWork, allowing users to report on timesheets right from their collaborative project management system in SharePoint.  The alliance between BrightWork and HMS was announced several weeks ago and the new integrated link between their products is now available.

“Integrating with best of breed systems such as TimeControl is one of the benefits of the SharePoint-based architecture of BrightWork,” says Éamonn McGuinness, CEO of BrightWork. “TimeControl extends the already extensive functionality of BrightWork to make task updating a natural part of ending one’s day or week.  We already have some clients in common using both TimeControl and BrightWork and we are very much looking forward to working with HMS on other clients.”

The combination of the BrightWork project management solution for SharePoint with TimeControl will deliver comprehensive project planning and tracking with task-by-task progressed timesheets.  Not only will BrightWork now be able to have timesheets with TimeControl’s unique Matrix Approval Process for Labor Actuals(tm), but other corporate systems such as payroll, HR, invoicing and job costing will be able to use the data thanks to TimeControl’s multi-function design.

“The launch of this integration with BrightWork is very exciting to us,” explains Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS Software.  “From the start of our technical alliance, both the teams from BrightWork and HMS knew the integration of both products would be a win-win.  Now collaborative project management systems using BrightWork will be able to include financial-quality actuals in their process.”

The integration between BrightWork and TimeControl has been designed with team members from both companies and will ship automatically within TimeControl as one of its standard Project Links.  Support of the integration will be a collaborative effort.  The integration is available immediately to clients with an active support contract.
