5 Key Benefits of Software as a Service (SaaS)
Software as a service (SaaS) is a technology trend quickly emerging as a popular option among IT professionals around the world. So, what is SaaS? SaaS is an alternative to the traditional software installation systems and is defined as a software distribution model in which applications are hosted by a vendor or service provider and made available to customers over a network. Ultimately, users rent the software instead of purchasing it and are generally charged on a monthly or yearly basis. To help understand why SaaS solutions can be advantageous over traditional software models, we have summarized some key benefits:
While traditional software models may require tedious and time-consuming installations that could take weeks or even months to implement, SaaS applications can be quickly deployed. It’s as simple as having Internet connection and login information to access your new software.
SaaS eliminates the need for recurring costs like maintenance and upgrades. Additionally, SaaS models utilize pay-as-you-go subscription pricing models that allow businesses to pay only for what they are using and help to avoid any heavy licensing costs.
