Riot Games chooses Hansoft Project Management Tool

Uppsala, Sweden– May 25, 2010– Hansoft, the leading vendor of tools for project management and quality assurance for Agile and Lean software development, today announced that Riot Games has decided to implement Hansoft, after having evaluated a number of project management tools on the market.

“We were searching for a project management tool that is user friendly and flexible enough to handle agile development and pipeline workflows, while providing the depth of reporting we need at Riot Games, to give us insight into progress from a detailed project and high-level program view. Hansoft has it all. Compared to other tools, Hansoft has dramatically reduced our planning overhead. It has given us much greater clarity around how quickly we’re progressing towards our goals, as well as the flexibility we need to support the fast paced development at Riot Games” said Mark Franz, Director of Development at Riot Games.

Hansoft stands out from other tools on the market with its uniquely intuitive interface design and scalable performance, combined with powerful features such as pipeline and workflow editors, a dynamic reporting tool, integrated bug tracking and real time workload management. This gives project managers the control they need in an uncertain and complex development environment, to get the most out of talented teams and ship high quality games on time.

“I’m really excited to hear the story about how Hansoft helped Riot Games simplifying the complexity of their projects and given them greater control over the development process. I look forward to an ongoing relationship with Riot Games and hope to be able to support them shipping many high quality games in the future,” said Patric Palm, Hansoft CEO.
