New Hansoft 5.0 with QA chosen by The Creative Assembly Australia

Hansoft, the leading vendor of production management tools in the game development industry today announced that The Creative Assembly Australia has chosen Hansoft and that the new 5.0 release with integrated QA has been successfully rolled out.

SEGA owned studio The Creative Assembly Australia (maker of Medieval II: Total War™ Kingdoms, due in autumn 2007) has successfully implemented the self-titled Hansoft tool for production management.

“Hansoft transformed our diligent game development team from a group that worked a lot of overtime to make a deadline, to a professional outfit that finished world class software ahead of schedule,” says Ashley Parker, Senior Producer, The Creative Assembly International.

“We are very passionate about production management practices and there is big money in shipping better games faster. Working with The Creative Assembly Australia has been very exiting since they are truly leading the way, bringing project management and collaboration to new levels. By using Hansoft they will benefit from a new breed of tools that are not only blistering fast and intuitive, but also features truly innovative and unique functionality,” says Patric Palm, Managing Director, Hansoft.

With the new 5.0 release Hansoft has applied its design and the performance of their unique technology to create an industry leading user friendly and really fast bug tracking tool. The functionality is designed to help integrate the QA process closer with development. With the Hansoft SDK real-time integration can be made with other bug databases and systems.

“Since moving over to Hansoft, instead of working overtime to meet deadline, now we are heading home on time, and spending our days adding extra polish to projects ahead of schedule. For game developers like ourselves, the new QA functionality will let our staff track both scheduled work and bug fixing in one application, which will help tighten our time management even further,” says Ashley Parker.

“With Hansoft 5.0 every team member will have tasks and bugs in one place and using the free QA-accounts for testers will help you save licensing costs,” says Patric Palm.
