There is much debate around the merits of manual versus automated testing for ecommerce projects, but after we successfully cut implementation costs for our clients in every sector by automating testing, we here at BORN have decided to fully embrace it.

Because ecommerce projects are built out incrementally they demand an extraordinary level of agility – one that is achievable only through consistent automated tests. These tests reduce the risk that newly developed features could break existing functionality, which would result in a higher level of regression bugs being reported. The automated tests also ensure regression defects from previous sprints are caught quickly and efficiently.
