Over the lifetime of a software program, be it a web site; web, desktop or mobile application, one of the most effective ways to save money is to get it right the first time, i.e., develop the software without bugs, because bug fixing becomes more expensive the later it is addressed. Not to mention damaging to the company’s reputation.
As software is so complex, unfortunately it is very hard to avoid bugs, and the bigger the program the greater the risk of bugs. So the trick is to fix the inevitable bugs as high up the chain as possible, starting at the point where the bug was initiated.
So our development procedures include three levels of testing during the implementation (programming) stage. In essence the software is being tested while the programmer is programming. This results in a higher quality product that costs less to build, which is released to market as much as 70% sooner.
