Press release from: Live Software Solutions

/ PR Agency: Bob Little Press & PR
Software developer Live Software Solutions (LSS), a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, has been helping developers at leading insurance comparison website, Gocompare.com, to make the most of its investment in Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2008 Team Foundation Server (TFS) – a software system that enables effective management and reporting across multiple projects.

LSS’s managing director, James Boother, explained: “TFS came about because Microsoft developers were finding that, within different projects, the phases of the software development life cycle - requirements gathering, architectural design, software design, software builds, and software testing - were not well integrated. Across projects, there was excessive variation in methodology, terminology, calculations and reporting.

“So, Microsoft produced the Microsoft Visual Studio Team System. This client/server system consolidates source code control, project management, build and test environments, work item tracking and bug tracking.

“We’ve been using TFS at LSS for over three years – and found it invaluable,” he added. “In that time, we’ve developed a fair amount of expertise in working with this software – so the advice and guidance we can give is beyond that which you would find in, say, an instruction manual.”

Susie Bradshaw, systems architect at Gocompare.com, commented: “TFS represents a substantial investment for us, so our developers needed to be ‘up-to-speed’ with all its capabilities as soon as possible.

“LSS’s James Boother and its technical director, Mike Goatly, spent a few days at our offices in Newport, Gwent, helping us to explore the finer points of TFS.

“Both of them were highly knowledgeable in the product and their real-world experience of developing with TFS really came across during the training sessions. They were able to provide us with practical tips and tricks that can only be gained with extensive hands-on experience of using the product.

“At Gocompare.com, we’ve created a comparison service where our customers enter their details only once and compare insurance products on a like-for-like basis so that they can choose the level of cover that they need from over 90 insurance companies,” she continued.

“Customers can make their decision based on the cover that is included, rather than purely on price.

“We also use a special five star rating service which indicates how closely the policies match the customer’s requirements. The more stars, the closer it is to what they've asked for.

“Consequently, given the complexity of our systems, it’s important that we achieve effective management and reporting across multiple projects – which is what TFS offers us. And, thanks to LSS’s knowledge and practical guidance, that is what we’re achieving – to the ultimate benefit of our customers,” she said.
