Eurocom, Britain's most successful privately owned games development studio, is set to become even more efficient with its adoption of Hansoft, a project management tool which enables game development to be tracked and organised much more easily.

Hansoft's fast and easy state-of-the-art functionality strengthens our project management capabilities and enhances our studio efficiency. Our adoption of Hansoft is also demonstrates the increasingly intricate process of managing game projects"

We are proud to provide Eurocom with a tool that will help them take the stress away from management and empower their teams to deliver even faster on desired quality and budget," says Patric Palm Managing director of Hansoft

Hansoft recently also announced its 3.2 release with project history analysis and enhanced functionality for involving publishers and outsourcing partners in the project. "We believe tighter collaboration will be increasingly important but also more difficult. Hansofts integrated solution will leverage the growing teams to their full potential," says Patric Palm.
