International dev group says Hansoft tools can simplify the process

Swedish management tool company Hansoft has announced a new deal with international game developer Ignition Entertainment.

Terms of the agreement were not announced, so it remains unclear how long Ignition will spend with Hansoft’s project management tools.

Ignition – a UK-headquartered company with offices in LA, Florida, London, Mumbai and Tokyo – said that the company’s own international spread made Hansoft an ideal choice in simplifying the dev process.

“With projects spread across different time-zones and territories it was important for us to have a flexible system that was accessible to key personnel from anywhere in the world,” said Ignition senior producer Anne-Christine Gasc.

She added: “[Hansoft’s] pipelines and workflows functionality allowed us to configure the system further to cover our remaining requirements, and in fact exceed them.”

Hansoft describes its tool chain as a an “integrated solution for agile and lean development, collaborative scheduling, real-time reporting, bug tracking / QA, workload coordination, portfolio and document management.”
