Software as a service, or SaaS, is one of the fastest-growing commodities on the web
Sales force defines SaaS as “a way of delivering applications over the internet – as a service”. SaaS removes the need for businesses to download and maintain software by simply accessing the service they need over the internet. Traditionally businesses had to build and manage their own I.T network to do business online and the majority of the time the costs are, simply put ‘ridiculous’. SaaS removes the need for internal systems and saves business time and money by providing cloud-based, instant services.
We use MyExpenses, DriverCare, IComply and TimeOff, three of which are currently available from ourselves and in widespread use with many businesses and industries.
Here are the top reasons why business should convert from an on-premise system to a cloud based system:
1. Cheaper Costs
SaaS is generally a subscription-based model where you can sign up for a period of time with set costs, giving greater clarity of your total expenses from the outset. When you use an SaaS platform, you have everything you need while no longer having to fork out on I.T upgrades or new hardware. The SaaS platform managers everything for you, which, in turn makes everything autonomous while also saving you time and money. With this autonomy installed you get results much faster than a manual setup.
2. Free Upgrades
Upgrading and maintaining services is key to running a successful business. Don’t worry about upgrading your SaaS, its done for you! The only thing that businesses need to do is agree on the terms of the service that we can provide, which shouldn’t be difficult. You are paying for our services so you can expect software or patches to be updated as soon as they become available.
All the best SaaS platforms have the ability to integrate seamlessly with all sorts of systems which, as it happens, ours does. SaaS platforms will assist with growth and there should be no breakdown of service as traffic and demands on the platform increase.
4. Only Pay For What You Use
Initial costs can be daunting at first, but you will quickly realise how much time and money you could save by using an SaaS that automates everything. The subscription based model means you’ve got a clear monthly or yearly forecast of what you’re going to spend on the platform. As a provider, we expect nothing but growth for customers who are organised enough to take advantage of SaaS providers.
