Software as a service holds multiple advantages over normal software. As opposed to the traditional business environment, where a business has a server in-house with multiple applications and users, SaaS is done entirely through cloud computing. With SaaS, the user doesn’t pay for a physical product and instead buys the right to access the software over the internet.
SaaS holds multiple advantages over normal software:
- Reduced time – With SaaS users benefit from a preinstalled software, and enjoy instant access to their products after purchase. No need to coordinate an appointment for someone to come on-site and install an application.
- Scalability – Users will be able to scale their personal experience to better fit their business needs. No need to buy a whole new software in order to get new features. Features will be added to the SaaS and available to customers immediately.
- Lower costs – Pay to use the product monthly or yearly through a subscription cost, and gain instant access to software. No licensing fee, and reduced maintenance costs since the SaaS provider owns the software environment.
