Car-O-Liner Streamlines Production With Hansoft Agile Planning Tool
Global automotive solutions company implements Hansoft for project planning and transforms product delivery process
MINNEAPOLIS, May 17, 2018 – Perforce Software, a provider of solutions to development teams requiring scale, visibility, and security along the development lifecycle, announced that teams at global automotive solutions company Car-O-Liner™ Group use Hansoft, an Agile planning and project management tool. The new tool has helped streamline and simplify the development of their collision repair and wheel alignment solutions.
The transition to a new solution arrives from a partnership with IT consultant, Headlight AB, who recommended they move to Hansoft based on previous experience with the tool. Since switching, Car-O-Liner has been able to simplify product development and project management for several cross-functional Agile hardware and software teams. The resulting efficiency from better data and real-time collaboration has been noticed throughout the organization.
“The winds of change can really be seen and felt in the organization,” says Sören Mellgren, Director of Engineering & Product Management at Car-O-Liner.
Most notably, Car-O-Liner project managers now have a single tool to organize, visualize, track, and measure their activities along the production pipeline. Aside from reducing the number of meetings and emails, they’ve trimmed time from their design and development phases by having a reliable and consistent tool for gathering and storing project data.
While teams at Car-O-Liner continue to build cutting-edge, complex, and custom solutions for the automotive industry, they now have an enterprise-wide Agile solution, Hansoft, to help make real-time decisions from data, and streamline and simplify production.
