If you are still unfamiliar with the SaaS concept, this is the right place for you to discover what SaaS is all about, development of SaaS applications, its characteristics as well as benefits.
SaaS is a specially-designed software distribution model whereby a third party provider like us hosts applications and also avails them to clients through the internet. It is among the three major classifications of cloud computing, together with IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-service) and PaaS (platform-as-a-service).
SaaS is quite similar to Application-Service-Provider and On-Demand-Computing (ASP and ODC) models of software delivery. Essentially, we host software and avail it to approved clients and end-users through the internet. Our clients have network based access to copies of applications that were specifically created for SaaS distribution.
The software’s source code is similar for all approved clients. Whenever new functions and features are created, all approved clients can have access to them. Depending on the SLA (Service-Level-Agreement), clients’ data may be safely stored locally, in the cloud or on both platforms.
SaaS eliminates the need for you to conduct installation and running of applications on your own in personal data centers or computers. Consequently, you would not have to spend significant resources in acquiring hardware, maintaining the hardware, purchasing software licenses or installing software.
There are many other benefits that you will enjoy if you let us provide your organization with Saas-other-platform services. The benefits include; flexible payment terms, persistence and accessibility, scalable usage as well as automatic updates.
Other benefits are; high adoption, seamless integration, low initial costs and painless upgrades.
With SaaS, you will only need to pay for what you make use of. Cross-device compatibility, customization, and white-labeling of applications and accessibility from remote locations are other benefits that you can enjoy if you seek our SaaS-other platform services.

Why you should be careful when choosing an SaaS service provider
The main disadvantage associated with SaaS is that clients must depend on third-party vendors to ensure that it is always up and running, keep clients’ information safe and secure and also report accurate billing. For this reason, it is important to consider several factors when choosing a suitable service provider.
Donot choose an SaaS service provider who will suffer frequent service disruptions, experience security breaches or impose undesired and unexpected changes to service offers. Such issues may substantially affect clients’ capacity to enjoy SaaS offerings.
