Advantages of SaaS



Nowadays software-as-a service (SaaS) is the most promising development in marketing and business world. Despite the increasing popularity and market share of SaaS, traditional in-house software vendors still seem to be resisting this concept. However, as time moves on and individuals grasp a better understanding of Cloud Services the number of firms are adopting. Almost all types of business applications such as: CRM, Inventor, Accounting, Marketing and Project Management to name a few are now SaaS based.

Reasons behind the success of SaaS:

Vendor’s Responsibility

SaaS providers are responsible for managing and maintaining both the software and hardware components of the application. The network issues such as data redundancy, data backup and recovery are also planned and managed by the vendors. They upgrade the software on regular intervals.

Ownership

Since SaaS vendors charge a set price per user per month, the firms don’t have to pay extra money for modules they don’t even use. It literally removes the maintenance, end user support, and administration costs of the software. The implementation and customization costs of SaaS are also lower than the traditional software. All this results in a very low total cost of ownership (TCO).

Scalability

Hosted software, another term for SaaS offers you more scalability in using the software. By utilizing SaaS you are free to use as much or as little part of any software as you need. This gives you easy and economical access to many programs.

Regular Upgrading

SaaS Vendors regularly upgrade their software, so that the users don’t have to put any effort into installing and upgrading the applications.

Easy Access

A major advantage of SaaS is it can easily and quickly be accessed from anywhere with a web browser. This gives users a great facility even when they are at home or in another country. They can access real time synchronized applications from Laptops and Smart Phones.
