Automated Testing of Online Booking Service Using Microsoft Visual Studio Helps BMI Airlines Increase Bookings and Save 250 Working Days a Year.
In 2008, U.K. based airline BMI, British Midland International, wanted to bring the development of its online booking engine in-house to respond faster to customer needs. With so many variations of flights and services offered, user interface testing is critical. The BMI development team re-wrote the site using the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate development system which offers powerful automated testing. The team predicts a saving of 250 days a year.
