Software as a Service (SaaS)

What is Software as a Service?

SaaS, or Software as a Service, is techno-speak for the idea that your software (all your applications) as well as your data are stored in the cloud. The most common example of SAAS is a CRM. Customer relationship management (CRM) is a cloud-stored software for managing a company’s interactions with current and future customers.

Before SaaS became an option, every company was required to choose a separate software platform for each of its application needs. After the arduous task of determining which software program would best meet current and future needs, the question of how many users (and consequently how many licenses) would need access had to be answered.

With the advancements made possible by cloud technology, a company with only a few employees can affordably have high-availability email, rich collaboration platforms, and/or remote meeting and private communication capabilities previously out of reach to all but enterprise customers.
