"We are thrilled to be able to be able to offer Timesheets as a Service (TaaS) with TimeControlOnline," says Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS Software. "This will allow existing and prospective clients the opportunity to focus on enjoying the benefits of TimeControl without having to worry about the technical installation, infrastructure or support of the system. It is an ideal solution for companies who want to get up and running with a timesheet instantly."

Subscribers to TimeControlOnline do not need to purchase server hardware, operating system licenses, databases or even TimeControl licenses nor will they need to hire or train technical personnel to install the system, do technical support, upgrades and maintenance of either TimeControl or any of the components.

"TimeControlOnline represents months of hard work and dedication from the HMS development staff," notes Stephen Eyton-Jones, Director of Technical Services. "For the past 17 years we have been committed to ensuring that TimeControl remains on the cutting edge of technology. TimeControl was one of the first timesheets available on Windows, one of the first available on a client-server database, one of the first available on a browser and will now be available in the cloud."

Clients will continue to enjoy the option of purchasing TimeControl. HMS is committed to supporting both on-premises installations of TimeControl and online subscriptions of TimeControlOnline.

Subscriptions to TimeControlOnline are priced on a per user per month basis. For pricing information please contact HMS Software at or visit
