Accurately capture evolving user requirements


Model complex systems as complete flowcharts in-sprint, using a comprehensive range of importers, scanners, and a UI recorder.

Clear designs, accurate development, and rigorous testing that keeps up with business needs:

Not got time to model? Think again.

With VIP, modelling is:

  • Rapid, using a range of importers, an object scanner, and UI Recorder to completely capture complex systems in-sprint.
  • Reliable, catching potentially costly design defects before they can reach development and be perpetuated in code.
  • Easy-to-use, with simple BPMN-style modelling and a drag-and-drop approach to quickly assemble models from re-usable components.
  • Collaborative, using shared requirements models to drive testing and development, keeping business and IT stakeholders aligned.
  • Reactive, using visual models to incorporate new user stories rapidly, quickly spotting their impact on existing systems and generating rigorous tests to validate any changes made.

Better Design. Better Code. Better Tests.


The VIP Test Modeller quickly captures new or existing functionality as easy-to-maintain flowchart models, from which a comprehensive set of tests can be generated and executed automatically.

Agile Requirements Modelling with VIP:Hand-written user stories and diagrams:

1. Automated Agile Requirements Modelling:

Clear and complete visual models are automatically created from existing user stories, scanned objects, and recorded activity.

1. Ambiguous User Stories Introduce Defects

Incomplete stories pile up over time and are written in ambiguous natural language. There is no dependency mapping between components.

2. Clear and Complete Designs Drive Test and Development:

Design defects are spotted and removed from the visual flowcharts, providing development with a complete and unambiguous mode.

2. Costly Bugs are Perpetuated Throughout Code:

Developers cannot identify the impact of new user stories across complex systems, and defects arise as they misinterpret written user stories.

3. Testing Detects Bugs First Time Round:

Automated tests that exercise all the logic contained in the modelled user stories are generated automatically from the flowcharts.

3. Slow and Manual Testing Catches Defects Late:

Testers convert incomplete user stories into tests manually, but this is time-consuming and leaves most of the system exposed to defects.

4. Reactive Automation Keeps Up With Change:

New user stories are imported quickly, with the impact of the change reflected across interdependent components. A rigorous test set is generated to validated any changes made.

4. Testing and Development Falls Behind Changing User Needs:

The impact of a change request across complex systems must be identified manually, with tests slowly updated by hand. Defects arise due to the unforeseen impact of changes made.
