To keep track of what to bill each month, newspaper distribution company VTD used to rely on spreadsheets emailed back-and-forth between the regional managers and the billing department. The process ment a lot of manual work for everyone involved, and was also very prone to errors. To fix both of these issues, eLabs developed a simple web application where the regional managers report their billing data each month. The billing department then has access to all the data in one location.
Using an agile approach and test-driven development allowed us to discover and verify the complex business rules. If we had tried to map them all out beforehand, some would inevitably have slipped through the cracks. The automated tests made sure that the end result - the billing data - was always correct and consistent.
