Benefits of Software as a Service
One of the primary benefits a company gains by using SaaS (Software as a Service) to solve their software needs is that the provider is responsible for time and money spent on maintenance, tech support, and upgrades – not the business using the software.
Accountability for keeping the software working and up-to-date lies with the vendor – who just happens to have a vested interest in keeping their clients happy! The SaaS provider may charge the consumer an upgrade fee, but the consumer doesn’t have to go through the process of buying the upgrade and installing it.. In the same way, the consumer does not have to worry about virus or other network-threatening difficulties. The consumer also gets access to a 24-7 help desk to work through any challenges.
Cost saving is another big reason companies go with SaaS. SaaS saves on salaries, software, equipment, and office space. There is also a fixed cost per user, which helps you in your budgetary plans. Many SaaS providers such as Digital Sabre also offer services scale with your company’s ups and downs, and a price per month arrangement. You don’t have to worry about long term commitment in unpredictable times.
