Enhanced toolset for studios that outsource work

The latest version of Hansoft’s project development tool adds will help simplify global collaboration, the company has said.

The Swedish firm says Hansoft 6.5 will come with better tools for studios that outsource their work. Fittingly there are also enhanced localisation tools for Japanese and Chinese developers.

“We have noticed a rapidly growing interest in Japan and China for the increased team efficiency Hansoft can bring,” said the firm’s Chief Development Officer Hans Andersson.

“Many of our customers there have asked for Hansoft being localised and we are now very happy to release a version localised in Japanese and mainland Chinese, complete with translated help files. We will also offer technical support by e-mail in Japanese and Chinese,” he added.

“We have made Hansoft simpler to use for team managers, and anyone else who work in a large-scale multi-team environment with massive product backlogs.

“Collaboration on graphical work is also made more visual with the new ability to include and do mark-ups on images in discussion threads. This makes both distributed and outsourced work easier.”
