Everything You Need to Know about SaaS

externally hosted softwareSaaS is a term you might see a lot in online circles or tech publications and it’s thrown around so often that its meaning can become slightly obscured.

SaaS stands for “Software as a Service”. Through a subscription, a user is given access to externally-hosted software that provides them with specialised tools or features.

The services provided by these software solutions could include workflow administration, scheduling tools, or asset & inventory management.

Some examples of SaaS in action

Microsoft Office provides individuals and businesses with the capability to create, edit, and share a suite of documents and reports.

DocuSign allows businesses and freelancers to sign and verify documents virtually

Mailchimp give users the tools to create and track email marketing campaigns

Benefits of the SaaS Model

The SaaS model is popular with organisations and individuals since it holds a number of benefits when compared to buying software outright.

  • Cost-effective → Paying for your software and its tools on a subscription poses as less of a financial risk. This allows smaller organisations to reduce costs and manage their finances more effectively while still being able to access premium effective software.
  • Flexible → Another advantage of the subscription model is the flexibility to downscale or upgrade as needed. This is something that isn’t really possible with fixed software packages.
  • Convenient → SaaS exists to fill spaces in markets and the tools it provides normally help streamline or automate certain tasks and processes. Not to mention any development for software under a SaaS is handled solely by the provider, relieving strain and financial pressures from the client(s). SaaS providers also tend to be more responsive to queries and will work alongside you to improve your experience.
  • Dynamic → The software and its tools are updated regularly by the providers to eliminate bugs and upgrade its features which ensures the service continues to match the client’s needs. With constant updates and new features being rolled out, the client stands only to gain.
