Technology, Management & Analysis Corporation (TMA)

Contact Name: Dan Riveria

Contact E-mail: info@tmac.com

Web Page: http://webtea.tmac.com

TMA has developed a JAVA-based, Web-enabled reporting system designed to be a bolt-on application to Oracle FinApps. Our web:TEA/Time and web:TEA/Travel & Expense (TE) captures information, maintains it within a very detailed audit trail, and transfers it in a common format to the organization's Payroll, HR, and Cost Accounting Systems.

Web:TEA uses the tables contained within FinApps for personnel and project/task information rather than developing and maintaining our own internal tables. Edits are performed within web:TEA to help validate information reported and to ensure compliance with a company's specific business rules. Our Federal contracting (DCAA) and commercial customers have found that web:TEA can dramatically reduce their report completion time, administrative costs, and data-entry errors.
