Virtuos selects Hansoft as backbone of “The Virtuos Experience” program

D.I.C.E Summit, Las Vegas – February 9, 2011 – Hansoft and Virtuos today announced that Virtuos, the offshore game development leader, has successfully implemented Hansoft project management and QA tool to nearly 600 production staff across 4 different locations.

Virtuos development centers take responsibility for an ever-growing range of projects: from standalone projects involving a few specialists for a few months all the way to large multi-platform full game co-developments requiring thousands of man-months.

In 2011, Virtuos teams are rolling-out “The Virtuos Experience” program, which aims to provide extra levels of reliability and visibility to their clients. The company was looking for a solution which could help it take a new step in agility while providing real-time transparency to clients. Encouraging more initiative and improved team-work by enabling each team member to contribute to project management was also a requirement.

“We tested Hansoft alongside other solutions for many months before making our choice. Hansoft spared no efforts to demonstrate that their software offered the key functions Virtuos needed combined with ease of deployment,” said Pan Feng, Virtuos Production Director.

Hansoft recently introduced version 6.5, localized in mainland Chinese and Japanese, to simplify global collaboration.  The real time updated data, user friendly interface and easily customizable restricted access for external partners, in combination with a flexible licensing model, make Hansoft a great tool for outsourcing and remote collaboration.

“With the implementation of Hansoft, Virtuos is leading the way among offshore services providers by showing the importance of great communication and collaboration not only within their talented teams but also directly with their demanding clients. Virtuos is a good example of how easy Hansoft is to implement, also in very large organizations. We are very excited about working with them,” said Patric Palm, Hansoft CEO.
