Software as a Service – Saas: the winning formula!

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a cloud-based system. Instead of downloading software on your computer, you access an application via a web browser. Fast, efficient and cheaper!

Until a few years ago, many IT companies equipped their customers with enterprise software installed directly on each employee’s computer. These models usually required large upfront investments in exchange for limited installations.

On-premise software

To use this software, companies had to purchase individual licenses. Equipped with these licenses, employees – who ultimately had limited storage space on their hard drives – were also forced to update the software manually via new licenses. Another stumbling block was that the “on-premise” software did not allow collaboration from a common database. And in the event of a failure, data breach or incident, data loss and repair costs were invariably the responsibility of the acquiring company.

Software as a Service (SaaS)

A Software as a Service (SaaS) offers a set of functionalities that users subscribe to. The applications are hosted on the servers of the software providers and the user does not have to install or maintain any software. The user only needs to connect via the Internet to benefit from the service and all the related advantages. The provider manages the security, access, storage and performance of the applications. This offshore management and maintenance offers a huge advantage to corporate IT departments: their teams can focus on strategic tasks rather than on managing software and hardware.

Innovative approach

A SaaS offers an innovative approach. Because it is subscription-based, it typically offers pricing options that are convenient for both individual and multiple users. And because the software is hosted on the providers’ servers, the companies that use it just need to maintain a high-speed internet connection. With automatic updates scheduled by the provider, applications and sensitive data are backed up in real time. Many providers also offer training to help users get the most out of their investment.

The 12 benefits of SaaS

Because it offers remote application hosting and delivery, SaaS is particularly well suited to organizations with a “work on the go” culture.

1 All employees can take control of the software

With cloud computing, software tends to be adopted by more users and departments within the company. As a result, its functionality quickly becomes more accessible to the entire organization rather than a select few users.

2 Easier integration

More and more SaaS providers are offering instructional documentation and training to facilitate onboarding for new users. This trend translates into a better return on investment.

3 Lower start-up costs

Through SaaS, companies no longer have to finance licenses, hardware or infrastructure. This opportunity breaks down budgetary barriers and allows companies of all sizes and stages of growth to benefit from the best software.

4 Rapid deployment

Because SaaS requires minimal configuration and virtually no onsite installations, deployment is ultra-fast. In most cases, updates and new applications can be deployed in a few clicks. This momentum allows them to be used sooner and get value from them faster.

5 Easier upgrades and updates

SaaS solutions enable real-time updates via the cloud. This allows enterprise customers to iterate software in a very short timeframe. This operational fluidity allows them to benefit more frequently and quickly from new, more reliable versions with additional functionality and enhanced security.

6 Real-time data

Cloud-based applications collect and display data in real time. This capability gives SaaS users instant access to scheduled updates.

7 Optimized customization

SaaS application developers often design their products to be easily customizable. This desire for “customization” allows customers who adopt them to adapt them to their needs.

8 Enhanced security and privacy

The vast majority of SaaS providers have realized that they need to invest heavily in data security and privacy to make their products attractive. In this context, they regularly offer integrated functionalities that include both the “Zero Trust” architecture and data encryption.

* Zero Trust is an approach that eliminates the concept of trust within network architectures. This prevents data from being compromised.

9 Integrated backup

Since SaaS is cloud-based and backups are frequent and automatic, the customer no longer takes the risk of losing valuable functionality and information in the event of an incident (natural disaster, coffee cup spilled on the keyboard, etc.).

10 Offline functionality

In principle, SaaS provides its services via the Internet. A valid and robust connection is therefore necessary. In order to prevent possible internet failures, many solutions offer a mode that allows for offline operation. When the connection is re-established, the data is automatically updated.

11 Increasing scalability

In case of rapid development of a customer, providers offer SaaS solutions that are able to evolve very quickly to meet all strategic developments.

12 Increased relevance

Because SaaS solutions have the ability to integrate data from many different sources in real time, the resulting reports and analyses are more relevant.


Keep it simple in a complex world!
As you can see, it’s no longer just about being fast to perform. It is also about operational intelligence. The world is becoming more complex every day and companies now need simple and effective solutions to add value to their products and services.
