Traditionally a company would purchase software as a license and then install that software onto dedicated hardware. The hardware was typically located on-premise inside the purchasing company and managed by their internal IT department. This type of purchase was generally expensive, with lots of hidden costs for setup, hardware, and maintenance. Deployment could also take many months or even years.
SaaS (Software as a Service) negates the need for organizations to install and run applications on their infrastructure. Hosted cloud infrastructure eliminates the expense of hardware acquisition provisioning and maintenance, as well as software licensing, installation, and support.
For a monthly or annual fixed fee, companies can adopt the software immediately without the risk of a considerable capital expense. The software and infrastructure get fully managed by the vendor needing no involvement from an internal IT team.
Rather than purchasing a software license alongside expensive hardware, you can subscribe to the service and pay either monthly or annually. This allows for predictable budgeting and the ability to terminate the service if requirements change.
Only pay for what you need:
With different plans to choose from, clients can pick the plan that suits them, and if requirements increase, they can adopt a higher tier plan or add options to unlock more functionality. This future proofs the solution and ensures that you only pay for what you need. If you add more functionality, users, or storage mid contract, we simply pro-rata the payment automatically.
Automatic Updates & Support:
Product updates and new features are continuously added by the vendor in the background, meaning you do not need to plan for upgrades or take responsibility for deploying them. Add new functionality as it becomes available, and should you ever need assistance, our tech software support is always on-hand to assist.
Being in the cloud means the application is available 24/7 365 days a year from any internet-enabled device anywhere in the world.
