HMS Software's project management consulting practice stretches back to 1984. Over the years, we have participated in a wide range of consulting projects on some of the most prestigious projects and in some of the most complex project environments in the world. Our experience in consulting covers the range from project management process to project management systems implementation to custom programming.
Our technical staff are all qualified consultants and we rotate our staff between consulting, training, development and technical support to ensure they remain at the leading edge of skill and knowledge on all technical aspects of automating a project environment. If you're interested in some of the consulting contracts we've done in the past, go to the Our Projects page.
We have extensive experience in the implementation of enterprise project and enterprise timesheet systems in organizations from as small as 50 employees to as large as 50,000 employees.
Our focus is the implementation of enterprise project and enterprise timesheet systems with everything that entails. HMS has had experience with a variety of project scheduling and project cost control systems. We have been working with Microsoft Project for over a decade and are one of only 19 companies recognized by Microsoft as a "Premiere Microsoft Project Solution Partner". We also have experience with the Welcom Software line of products including Open Plan, Cobra and WelcomHome and the Primavera line of products. HMS is a Primavera Alliance Partner and a Welcom Connect Partner.
As the publishers of TimeControl, HMS is obviously well positioned to assist with implementing an enterprise timekeeping system and with the technical and management issues that are involved with such an implementation. We have several pre-packaged programs for clients who want assistance with their TimeControl implementation.
Our methodology depends on the nature of the mandate. For purely technical mandates we can work on a time-and-materials basis, or in a pre-packaged, fixed-price format. For more complex projects, we prefer to work on a phased basis. In this case, we start with a short scope and discovery phase and then deliver the project in manageable phases.
We have several prepackaged consulting options which correspond to requests that we receive often. You'll find more information on them below. If you don't see something that's the right match for you, please just ask and we'll have one of our technical personnel work with you to scope your requirements with you.
As the publishers of TimeControl, we have designed several packages of installation and configuration of TimeControl based on the version of TimeControl selected and the complexity of the implementation. You'll find more about these programs in the TimeControl Service Solutions Area.
HMS is a Software developer. Aside from our commercial success with TimeControl, HMS has worked with numerous organizations to assist them with developing applications, interfaces and utilities as part of their project management or timesheet environments. Our custom development methodology is based on staged development where we work in phases. To find out more about how we can help with your requirements, email us using the HMS Services Request page and we'll have one of our technical personnel speak to you directly.
Enterprise Project Management Assessment
If you don't know where you are, it's hard to figure out where you're going. HMS can work with your organization to assess what aspects of your project management environment would most benefit from change and how to best implement an enterprise project management structure. Our work will result in a Roadmap of what you will need to do to implement an Enterprise Project Management environment. We can then assist with whatever elements of the plan you wish.
Microsoft Project Consulting
HMS can assist you with all aspects of creating an enterprise project management environment using Microsoft Project and Project Server in as detailed or summary role as you require. We can help with everything from evaluation to installation and even help set up a PMO. Microsoft has named HMS as one of only 19 Premiere Microsoft Project Solution Providers in the world, a distinction we're very proud of.
