HMS names Commint TimeControl/Primavera Center of Excellence

Montreal, Quebec - February 10, 2000 - HMS Software announced today the appointment of Commint inc. of Houston, Texas as its Center of Excellence for linking TimeControl, HMS's enterprise timekeeping system, with Primavera Project Planner (P3 and P3e) products. This new alliance allows Commint to act as a distributor for HMS's TimeControl throughout the U.S. Commint will now be able to enroll dealers for TimeControl from among the many representatives and 3rd party experts of Primavera solutions throughout the U.S., the Caribbean and Mexico.

"This new alliance is key to the rapid expansion of TimeControl," according to Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS. "Commint was the very first Primavera dealer over 15 years ago. Their influence on the extensive Primavera product industry is significant. This new alliance will allow Commint to act as an internal expert for Primavera product users who are interested in implementing TimeControl."

TimeControl has included a direct link with Primavera Project Planner (P3) since 1997 and has recently announced a link with Primavera's new project management system, Primavera Project Planner for the Enterprise (P3e).

This strategic alliance comprises both marketing and technical components. Commint already resells TimeControl as a dealer. Now they will be able to resell as a distributor through dealers they enroll. In addition, Commint's technical services have been extended to provide TimeControl implementation expertise to the Primavera-oriented expertise they already provide across the U.S.

"We're very excited about this new facet to our relationship with HMS," says Keith Kelley, President of Commint. "Our success over the past year as a TimeControl dealer has enabled us to deliver best-of-breed solutions to our existing clients. In particular, the combination of Primavera's project management software and HMS's TimeControl makes for a powerful solution for organizations committed to managing their business by project."

Commint has already signed on new dealers for TimeControl. "Many Primavera representatives are interested in supporting both product lines," according to Kelley. "HMS is a Primavera Alliance Partner so they know the products and companies are compatible. Established Primavera dealers see this as an opportunity to extend client support from a project management arena to a more enterprise-wide approach."
