Jim Johnson suggests you consider how WebEx develops and releases software, Standish Group decided to adapt WebEx's method to our development organization. You need to have an iterative development methodology. You start with a release baseline. This is how it works. You develop the function over the current code. You test as best as you can within your budget. You add it to the application. If you have done a poor job, you might receive a bunch of calls, but then you fix it. You will know better the next time to do more testing first.
