Rock Band dev looks to Swedish tool company for project streamlining

Harmonix has licensed the latest project management tool suite from Swedish vendor Hansoft.



“As a rapidly growing studio we needed a server based project management solution that could support internally and externally driven projects and was easy to adapt to our iterative development process – Hansoft delivered,” said Harmonix production director Michael Verrette.

Hansoft 5.3 is the company’s newest suite of tools that provides collaborative scheduling, bug tracking, workload coordination, and document management.



“In the short time we have had Hansoft deployed, it has already increased productivity, communication and visibility across our entire team,” added Verrette. 



“The new pipeline and workflow tool has allowed Harmonix to automate many of our repetitive and time-consuming production tasks into a streamlined process that the development team has direct interaction with.”

Hansoft CEO Patric Palm said that the company “wanted to find a way to take much of the heavy manual work out of managing asset pipelines, to make it more lean. Seeing how rapidly Harmonix has adapted the pipeline tool, I think we have succeeded.”
