SaaS (Software as a Service) has become the world’s most popular software delivery model, and its growth continues with no signs of slowing down. The SaaS model allows users to access the software features and capacity they need on a subscription basis from centrally located cloud servers. Its ease of access has made SaaS-based delivery a preferred approach for all types of applications, including CRM, sales and pipeline management, content management, payroll, document editing and storage, and more.
The benefits of SaaS-based software delivery include:
The SaaS model eliminates the need for a company to make a large up-front investment in the software, hardware, and supporting resources to “stand up” an application on-premises. Financial executives appreciate this as they can shift their investment in these applications from a capital expenditure to an operating expense, maintaining a high level of financial flexibility in the process.
Implementing an application on-premises can take weeks, or even months, to accomplish. In the process, your organization is losing out on all of the benefits it seeks from the use of the application. With SaaS delivery, on the other hand, you can usually sign up on a subscription basis and go live with the application immediately.
The subscription model offered by most SaaS vendors allows for easy scalability in that you can increase (or decrease) your application capacity as your company’s needs evolve over time.
Hosting an application on your own servers requires your organization to allocate money and labor resources to the ongoing management and maintenance of the application. With SaaS delivery, this responsibility is shifted to the SaaS vendor, allowing your organization to focus on its core business.
B2B SaaS Partner Programs
While starting a SaaS company from scratch can require hundreds of thousands (or even millions) of dollars, the industry has evolved to offer several powerful ways for a company to offer SaaS-based technologies to their clients, without having to make this sizable investment.
B2B SaaS partner programs are offered by vendors who offer specialized technology in the business-to-business (B2B) space and are looking to grow their company by recruiting partners to sell their offerings. In some cases, these programs offer white labeling, which allows your company to resell the SaaS offering under your own company branding.
As a B2B SaaS partner, your company can often be up-and-running right way, with minimal up-front costs. And because the SaaS vendor manages the application infrastructure, your team can focus on signing up customers and growing your revenues.
