Hansoft project management solution chosen by Curve Studios

Uppsala, Sweden– March 31, 2009– Hansoft, the leading vendor of tools for project management and QA in the game development industry, announced today that independent video games developer Curve Studios has successfully implemented Hansoft.

“Hansoft is a great asset to Curve Studios, helping us keep our commitment of constantly delivering high quality titles. We've found it a powerful tool that facilitates both Agile and Waterfall methodologies, and use it across multiple projects. Hansoft’s ease of use allows for rapid planning, and really helps to empower the team by giving them a constantly updated list of what their tasks are on different levels of granularity, as well as keeping them in touch with the projects’ bigger picture,” said Graeme Puttock– Head of Production at Curve Studios.

Hansoft is a project management tool used by developers in more than 20 countries around the globe. The ability to handle both Agile and scheduling projects keeps all teams on track and the project managers can easily follow the progress. Hansoft also takes resource management to a new dimension, making it easier to keep costs down, hit deadlines and ship better games faster.

“Over allocation used to be a typical problem when working over multiple projects. The difficulties to coordinate teams and maximise resources we saw among our customers, inspired us to develop a powerful resource management tool in Hansoft. I get constantly surprised over the amount of time and money that can be saved, simply by using existing resources in a more efficient way. Curve is an excitng studio and I’m really curious to see what they’ll come up with in the future,” said Hansoft CEO Patric Palm.
