Hansoft successfully implemented by Epic Games China

Uppsala, Sweden, February 9, 2009– Hansoft, the leading vendor of tools for project management and QA in the game development industry, today announced that Epic Games China has successfully adopted the Hansoft production management solution.

"What doesn't bend, breaks. Hansoft is ideal for game industry development because it provides flexibility for shifting priorities and goals through highly intuitive and usable interface design. The ability to easily manage resources for projects, customize the production style and views per project and user, and quickly see resource conflicts, workloads and costs continues to impress me daily. Overall, Hansoft's integration of the scheduling, reporting and bug tracking systems, with large scale multi-user role based architecture, makes it an excellent single tool solution for the full production pipeline," said Mike Hines, Project Director at Epic Games China
