Benefits of Software as a Service (SaaS): The Wonders of the Cloud

Posted on Feb 12, 2014 3:31:00 PM by Ashley Wood

The benefits of SaaS can be found directly in the usefulness of the cloud and how it's already made businesses much more efficient than they had been for decades. If you've heard of SaaS, but don't know what it means, it stands for Software as a Service. Thanks to the cloud being able to store any piece of data and making it accessible anywhere there's an Internet connection, adding software there has made a world of difference in bringing more business efficiency.

Imagine being able to work with software and not have to worry about technicians configuring your system so it works correctly. Here at Amilia, we have an e-commerce software that works through the SaaS process so you don't have to worry about having it physically installed at your organization. But while ease of installation is a major part of why SaaS is popular, it goes beyond that in what it can do for you later.

The Saving of Money in Licensing and Maintenance

Having a software in SaaS form ultimately saves you money over time over owning a software outright. Because it's all internal and works similarly to a rental, you don't have to worry about paying for licensing on owning the software..

And when it comes to maintenance, any business knows what it's like to have to maintain physical software when things go wrong. Needing to call in an IT team to fix buggy software can bring on considerable downtime that no business wants for a single minute. With SaaS, all the maintenance is done for you automatically, and we do the same with our e-commerce software here at Amilia.

Automatic Upgrades

Sometimes the maintenance for software involves having to upgrade in order to gain new features or because a previous version is being phased out. This can be frustrating to a small business with a limited budget, and it can be an expense that hits at the wrong time. With SaaS, all upgrades are going to be automatic so there's no need to spend extra money for a new version with only a few new features.

Being Able to Test the Software Before Buying

The cloud allows you to try different software first so you can see if it's right for your business before committing. In fact, with the ability to try multiple software that way, businesses can essentially do quick shopping on different kinds of software so they can find one suitable for them.

If you need more efficient e-commerce for your business, the benefits you'll find in our software all connect to the above benefits of SaaS. You can essentially start your own e-commerce store through the cloud and be able to access it at any time of the day or night to help manage purchases with convenient features.
