Uppsala, Sweden – Jan 9, 2014 – Hansoft, award-winning tool for agile team collaboration and management, releases Hansoft 7.5 and takes agile to new levels.

“Hansoft 7.5 contains a number of improvements based on user-feedback, especially from our enterprise clients using Hansoft to scale agile super-large. Compared to other tools, Hansoft has proven particularly fit in large development environments with several parallel development streams, for the teams, programs and on the portfolio level. These organizations typically have complex release trains, use multiple developments methods and work on different OS platforms,” said Patric Palm, Hansoft CEO.

“Flexible release tagging” is one of the new features that will make life easier for large organizations, allowing them to face a reality of multiple releases mixed from several dimensions, for example targeting several releases in one sprint and managing complex release trains. The sprint burndown has also been improved with an ideal burndown line, exclusion of non-working days and the option to turn off sprint prediction.
