Software as a Service (SaaS)

Traditionally, companies have been required to buy, build, and maintain their own IT infrastructures. However, Software As A Service (SaaS) now gives companies an alternative option. Companies can now plug in and subscribe to services built on shared infrastructure via the Internet. The SaaS software model has thrived in recent years because of the many benefits it offers to companies of all types and size. Below are some of the reasons why SaaS solutions are proving such a popular choice.


Reasons why SaaS makes sense

Lower initial costs

Do you want to future-proof your business and put the tools in place to help you grow? Perhaps you would like to cut costs, improve security and spend more time on the day-to-day and less time worrying about servers, upgrades and maintenance?

SaaS applications are subscription-based. With no upfront license fees or infrastructure investment, there are lower initial costs. SaaS is typically managed by the provider, which also means lower ongoing operational costs for the company.

Anytime/anywhere access

SaaS applications are available from any computer or any device—anytime, anywhere. With the internet being a familiar and easy-to-use tool that most people are confident with, SaaS applications tend to have high adoption rates with low training requirements.

Pain-free upgrades

Because the SaaS provider manages all updates and upgrades, there are no patches for customers to download or install. The SaaS software provider also manages availability, so there’s no need for customers to add hardware, software, or bandwidth as the user base grows.
