TEMS version 2 was released on February 23, 2012. TEMS Version 2 simplifies many setup and configurations, allows you to bill based on the job type and special rates (such as serving in the weekend or night for a special rate). You may do job costing for government projects and billing.

TEMS version 2 has many intelligent features, system guidences, ease of search, and it holds user’s preferences. It allows you to create reports in PDF. It allows you to invoice based on the projects rather than based on the account, so you can create multiple invoices for the same account receivables independently.

TEMS is available in Dutch language from version 2.

Thanks to our contributor Ben Leuverink for providing the Dutch translation of the entire application.

The single installation of TEMS will appear in different languages based on users preprefernce. 

You can use TEMS in Italian language. Fabiano Gazza has translated the entire application in Italian. The single instance of TEMS will appear in different languages based on logged-in users preference of language. Currently it serves in English and Italian. More languages will come soon.

TEMS is a community project. If you want to help us translating in another language, please contact us.

When we started our company Initechs in 2005 we searched for time and expense management system, paid or free, Client-Server or Web-based, Hosted or SaaS (This term was not made at that time). We found a lot of software, we tried a few of them with an expectation that one of these will give us the basic functionalities that we are looking for. Our demand was not unique! Strange enough all these applications covered many aspects like budget, estimate, calendaring, to an extent project management, and accounting, but did not have basis features that any small consulting companies would look for. At last we detailed out a functional specification and developed the time and expense management application on IBM System-i (iSeries called on those days, next generation of system of AS/400) using our proprietary framework. Over 5 years that application gained a lot of maturity and got a lot of appreciations from potential users. Meanwhile software industry also changed a lot. SaaS and Open Source have got solid footings on the ground; LAMP Stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) became a de-facto platform for small to medium size applications. We have used many open source product for our internal use, like SugarCRM, Joomla, Drupal, Notepad++, FileZilla, jZip, MantisBT are to name a few. Sourceforge.net provides a fairly workable platform and Google provides many services to run a business at no cost. Towards the end of 2009, my friend Mahantesh Gadekar (who is a co-author of this LAMP application) and I decided to develop the same application that is running in IBM System-i on LAMP stack and publish it using sourceforge.net. It took us little over 8 months to complete the first version and publish it for public.
