SaaS isn’t a Secret Anymore

Author: Rachel Hentges

It’s no secret that software applications improve the management of business processes. The important task of keeping track of critical projects from start to finish is no longer optional. Without it, your organisation will inevitably waste time and resources resulting in lost revenue. The question organisations find themselves asking today is not whether they need a software application to manage their portfolio of projects, but whether the solution will be on-premise or SaaS (Software as a Service) delivered?

This question shouldn’t be a hard decision once individuals take a look at what makes a SaaS solution different. With on-premise solutions, companies are forced to pay significantly more upfront to install the solution. Upgrades of the most recent additions to the software with an on-premise solution often cost extra, which forces companies to continue using out-dated systems to manage projects. On-premise solutions limit the reliability of accuracy for users because there isn’t one up-to-date real version of the truth. With a SaaS solution, these issues can be avoided. Today, the advantage of a SaaS solution over an on-premise solution isn’t a secret anymore.

Below are some major benefits of a SaaS solution:

  • Affordable, subscription based
  • Access anywhere, anytime
  • Easy and fast implementation
  • Frequent Automated Upgrades
  • No hardware needed – use on any device
  • Easy to use – higher user acceptance

These benefits are only the beginning of what makes SaaS the right choice for organisations looking to optimize project portfolio management. SaaS empowers company’s to make the right decisions at the right time with the most up to date information and achieve or exceed organisational goals and objectives. With a SaaS solution, companies are able to make the most of their time, money, and resources.
