Hansoft project management solution implemented by Ignition Entertainment

Uppsala, Sweden– April 22, 2010– Hansoft, the leading vendor of tools for project management and QA in the software and game development industries, today announced that Ignition Entertainment has successfully implemented Hansoft.

“With projects spread across different time-zones and territories it was important for us to have a flexible system that was accessible to key personnel from anywhere in the world. We came upon Hansoft and found that it covered our requirements straight out of the box. The pipelines and workflows functionality allowed us to configure the system further to cover our remaining requirements, and in fact exceed them,” said Anne-Christine Gasc, Senior Producer, Ignition Entertainment.

Hansoft is a project management solution that simplifies complexity of large development projects, which often have distributed teams. Project managers and executives can easily follow the progress in real time and have full control over geographically spread resources and outsourced teams.

“The pipeline and workflow tool, that we introduced last year, has been a huge success among developers who previously struggled to manage complex, parallel, and nested flows of art creation. I’m really glad to hear that Hansoft has exceeded the expectations of Ignition Entertainment and we are excited to be working with them and keep helping them improve their productivity in the future,” said Hansoft CEO Patric Palm.
