Hansoft successfully adopted by Avalanche Studios

Uppsala, Sweden – December 9, 2011 – [2]Hansoft, the leading vendor of tools for project management and defect tracking for Agile and Lean software development, today announced that the leading game developer Avalanche Studios has successfully adopted Hansoft.

“For us, Hansoft was a major turning point in the project. Together with a fresh road map, Hansoft helped us structure and get an overview of our work, which has been immensely helpful. The more we use it, the more we want to use it,” said Dan Thronström, Senior Producer, Avalanche.

Hansoft’s fast performance in combination with an intuitive interface makes it an easy to use tool that typically becomes a natural part of the daily work at the studio. Agile, Lean, scheduling, bug tracking, workload coordination, portfolio- and document management: Hansoft brings it all together, makes it easier to get an overview of the project and ship on time with top quality.

“No studio wants to end up doing a death march. Where other tools fall short providing only flat lists of things to fix, Hansoft helps teams achieve a more proactive and structured approach. It’s no silver bullet, but certainly gives the team a better shot managing their production successfully.

Avalanche Studios are not only doing exciting games but now also setting up an office in New York and we are thrilled to start working with them,” said Patric Palm, Hansoft CEO.
