When we built Billing Boss we chose Ruby on Rails: it allows us to focus on what the application is supposed to do, and quickly build the right thing. Ruby on Rails is the brainchild of David Heinemeier Hansson of 37signals. We're fans of 37signals and their project management application Basecamp, from which Ruby on Rails originated. Ruby on Rails makes building web applications easy and fun.
For Billing Boss, Ruby on Rails was the right tool for the job. It kept us from being distracted by endless platform choices, architecture choices, and dozens of other factors that keep development teams spinning their wheels for years. We hope Billing Boss provides the right tools to get your billing done, and no more. Choices are problematic, and we want to make things easy for you. Let us know where we're missing the mark.
