Do We Need To Standardize On A Single Project Management System Before Integrating TimeControl?
No and TimeControl is ideally suited for this type of challenge. The pre-defined links to project management tools can link a TimeControl Project and associated charge codes to project information in Microsoft Project 1995 and up Microsoft Project Server 2002 and up, Oracle Primavera P3 through P6, Deltek’s Open Plan, InEight’s Hard Dollar HD and VersionOne. And, it can link to all of those systems simultaneously. TimeControl is designed to make as many project system connections as you wish and then each project can be linked through that connection to a project in that system. This allows TimeControl to not only link some projects to Microsoft Project and some to Primavera P6 but TimeControl can link to multiple versions at the same time. Imagine a situation where some projects are being managed in Microsoft Project Server 2010 and some are being managed in a separate instance of Microsoft Project Server 2013. TimeControl could link to both systems at the same time and a TimeControl user wouldn’t have to worry about it. They would just enter their complete timesheet in TimeControl and the data will go to the right project system and the right tasks in the background!
