eTimeMachine™ works hand-in-glove with Microsoft® Project to extend and blend system information and capabilities. Furthermore, eTimeMachine™ offers great assistance to companies operating within a multi project management platform environment. Resource, cost and project data are consolidated across both Project Management tools to provide management with a complete enterprise - wide view of the current health of the organization and its projects.

  • eTimeMachine Enterprise funnels assigned activities from MS Project and other applications into its database; combines them with eTimeMachine’s activities and then delivers the activities to the assigned employee / workgroup / role, making them available in the eTimeMachine Workspace™ for time and progress reporting. 
  • eTimeMachine Workspace™ acts as an employee timesheet and available on the web, mobile devices and through e-mail, for work execution and time reporting. After a timesheet has been submitted, it undergoes a Review and Approval process. Timesheet information, including working hours, expenses, attendance, progress and status is first validated automatically based on established business rules, and then goes through eTimeMachine’s approval workflow.
  • eTimeMachine verifies timesheet information, and then passes it over to Microsoft Project (and other applications as required) where it updates actual cost, progress and status.
  • eTimeMachine’s transaction based back-end allows the system to collect, validate and store each employee's entry of time and progress to provide immediate time-phased earned value, cost, time and budget data by any defined period and at every level of the organization and enterprise project structure.

 

Integration Scenario In a Nutshell


  •  eTimeMachine collects and puts into employee’s personalized workspace activities from project management systems such as Oracle Primavera, MS Project, Help Desk systems (Remedy), Workflows, and eTimeMachine itself.
  • Employees update progress, enter time and expense, and submit timesheets for approval.
  • Once approved, eTimeMachine sends data to the respective Project Management, Help Desk, and other (ERP) systems such as Accounting, Payroll and HR.
