Uppsala, Sweden – June 26, 2012 – Hansoft, the leading vendor of tools for project management and defect tracking for Agile and Lean game and software development, today announced that Radical Entertainment has successfully implemented Hansoft.

“Radical Entertainment has been making video games since 1991, and during that time, we have developed our own cutting-edge proprietary technology, pipelines and processes. Our tools have served us incredibly well for over 20 years, so the adoption of Hansoft for production management is a massive statement of support.  Hansoft's advanced tools, workflows, flexibility, and strong support will significantly increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our production flow.  This will allow us to focus even more on what we do best - making great games!,” said David Fracchia, Vice President Technology at Radical.

Hansoft project management and QA tool has helped the world’s most demanding developers increase productivity and ship better software faster for nearly a decade. Agile and lean development, collaborative scheduling, real-time reporting, bug tracking / QA, workload coordination, portfolio and document management are tightly integrated in one real-time updated solution, flexible to bend to the needs of a specific organization.

“Leading studios around the world like Radical Entertainment are our customers, and since they are already themselves developing cutting edge tools and technology, they are a very demanding community to serve. But this is what we thrive on, continuously pushing forward with new releases making development simpler for the teams and enabling new more productive ways of working. We are very excited to have Radical Entertainment part of this community now and looking forward working together,” said Patric Palm, Hansoft CEO.
