What is software-as-a-service (SaaS)? SaaS is an internet service that allows you to access your applications and software safely and securely online on a dedicated virtual server. No costly equipment or hardware is needed, so you save a lot in annual costs. Software-as-a-service provides enterprise-level applications and software tools such as financial management, human resources, and customer relationship management, as well as email, sales reports, billing, and more.

As cloud technology has continued to have a massive impact on the way businesses are operating, platforms like software-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, infrastructure-as-a-service, and more have made managing a business more affordable and convenient. Advantages of SaaS include: low investment and initial cost, reduced labor costs, easy integration with your current networks and equipment, simple upgrades, and even managed updates. SaaS is an excellent solution for SMBs as well as any business looking to reduce their overall operational costs and enhance performance.

No system is perfect, and software-as-a-service may not be the best solution depending on the type of business that you have. If your organization uses an on-premises system that works for your operations, integrating a service like SaaS can be complicated and unnecessary. At ATEL Communications, we can find a solution that works for your business and even perform an evaluation to figure out what will improve your business operations and save you money. Learn more.
