Leverage Software-as-a-Service to Supercharge Your Business
How Using a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Stack Can Save You Money and Streamline Your Workflows
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a term that’s become more and more prevalent over a handful of years. But, if you don’t know what it means, it refers to a software delivery method where everything the customer needs can be accessed via a simple internet connection. No need for expensive hardware installations – just internet access and a device that can connect online.
Here at Texada, we use the SaaS model to deliver our products to our customers. As a result, this means they save on software, server hardware and operating systems costs. We handle all of that on our end so that our customers get continuous and reliable access to the one-stop-shop that is the Texada platform.
A great SaaS vendor can be a game-changer for a business. Not convinced? Here are the top ten benefits of a high-quality, customer-focused SaaS provider:
1. Easy and Instant
Deployment is fast, and all you need to access the platform is to open up your internet browser. Then you can get to work in no time!
The lack of on-site equipment needed means it’s far less of an investment— no need to buy expensive servers or pay for costly installation and deployment.
3. IT Coverage
You also don’t need to take care of IT– that’s all done by the SaaS provider! This reduces staffing costs and provides the best possible security for your business. Having the people who know the product inside and out handle the technical side will ensure that all your IT needs are taken care of.
4. Stay Up-to-Date
The SaaS provider takes care of all the back-end updates, so you don’t have to worry about updating your systems. You just need to log in and enjoy the constant improvements of your software.
5. Maximize Your Up Time
The updates mentioned above are usually scheduled for after work hours, ensuring minimal downtime and high availability, and keeping your workflow moving forward without interruptions.
6. Everything Stays Backed Up
A good SaaS vendor will perform regular backups to make sure all your data is safe. For example, at Texada, we perform backups daily, which ensures our customers can quickly recover data if needed.
7. Stay Connected Globally
Since all you need is an internet connection to access SaaS platforms, you can be anywhere in the world and still have the same access to the software as you would at the office. Great for work on job sites, making decisions on the go, or even when you are working from home.
8. Keep Your Files Secure
Any good SaaS company knows that security is of paramount importance. Network, internal systems, operating systems, and application security all work together to ensure your data stays safe.
9. Scale Up with Ease
Since most SaaS solutions are subscription based, you can easily upgrade and manage the services you use depending on the season and your ever-changing business needs. Plus, upgrading to better serve your growing business is simple since you aren’t required to upgrade your physical infrastructure
10. Customer Service
SaaS vendors know that making sure their customers are happy is critical to providing a good solution. At Texada, we have an incredible service team that loves helping our customers and ensuring they are leveraging our products in a way that will be the most beneficial for their business.
Keep these in mind when selecting the right product for you and your business! A SaaS vendor that can provide all ten of these benefits is one that’s worth learning more about.
