Software as a Service (SaaS) Application Enablement
As one of the earliest so-called ASP businesses, Cobweb understands the complexities of delivering Software as a Service (SaaS) in a multi-customer environment. Getting the code right is just the start. We understand the marketing, commercial and billing challenges, and already have a base of over 5,000 small business customers taking multiple services from us.
We believe and support the pay-as-you-go model, because your customers gain easy access to the applications developed by you, and managed by Cobweb. Customer pain is removed because the complexity of managing the software, hardware, and connectivity is handled by Cobweb, in addition to the 2nd tier 24/7 platform support. This means your organisation can remain focused on developing the software, acquiring new customers and delivering the specialist application customer support.
Cobweb offers a number of business models, including traditional hosting relationships and shared revenue, to help make your transition to Software as a Service as easy as possible. We also have the commercial expertise, including a large scale billing platform and technical know-how, needed to help you make the change from traditional on-premise model to the new world of Software as a Service sales and delivery.
SaaS Business Benefits
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is one of the fastest growing segments of the information technology (IT) industry, because it provides a more cost-effective alternative for enterprises to achieve their business objectives than traditional packaged applications.
Traditionally, companies buy software, then install and maintain these applications on their own machines. That model is giving way to one where companies will buy subscriptions and access services over the Internet from software Managed Hosting providers.
The benefits of SaaS
- Capital expenditure up front is minimal
- Enables the sharing of resources
- Scalability that meets companies changing demands immediately
- Security with centralised secure data storage
- Performance is more consistent
Cobweb can help you with a cost effective way of deploying an application as a hosted service, with a cost effective subscription per user, therefore limiting your maintenance and updates of the software.Contact Us
