Although Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has been around for some time, it is still the future solution. There are still a growing number of companies considering the transition to a SaaS solution. If you opt for SaaS software, one of the most important features is that the software is no longer installed on your server. The solution is located on the supplier’s server and can be consulted via any device with the internet. There are several advantages if you choose SaaS software. We are happy to explain it to you.
What is SaaS?
As mentioned, SaaS software is no longer installed on your server. The solution service provider manages the system on the server. If you agree with the service provider, you pay a monthly fee to use this software. You can consult the system via a device with internet access so that you can use it anywhere and at any time. Our service and maintenance software is such a SaaS solution and has the same advantages.
1. Provided with automatic updates and bug fixes
One of the main advantages of SaaS is that your business software is automatically provided with automatic updates and bug fixes. You are no longer responsible for performing updates. As soon as an update is available, your system will be updated automatically. You will hardly notice this. It also automatically means that your system always complies with laws and regulations. An outdated system is a thing of the past.
2. Easy to adjust
If you choose a SaaS solution, you no longer have to deal with high, one-time start-up costs and investments. In addition, you can easily add functions at a later time, without having to pay for them from the start. If over time, it turns out that a particular feature doesn’t meet your needs and you no longer need it, you’re not stuck with an expensive purchased feature. Employees who no longer use the system can easily be scaled, or you can add more employees at a later time. With a SaaS solution, you only pay monthly for what you use.
3. Consult via any device with an internet connection
Especially in the present time, a significant advantage is that your employees can use the software everywhere. Since the solution no longer runs on your server, you only need a device with an internet connection to access all data and functions. Employees work uniformly in the office, at home, and on the road.
4. Inexpensive to purchase
In general, a SaaS solution is more economical than a heavy on-premise system with high start-up costs. Some time ago, we already explained how you could save costs with a system in the cloud.
5. A system with a future
You can assume that software suppliers of a SaaS solution will remain engaged with their customers. Because of the subscription form, customers like you can cancel the subscription of the solution. To prevent this, software suppliers do everything they can to keep improving the system. If you choose a SaaS solution, you can assume that your system is future-proof. The system will be further optimized on all kinds of crucial fronts.
