A 3-Step Guide to Choosing the Best SaaS Subscription

In the early days of computing, the strategy was straightforward – you’d purchase the necessary applications and operating system software for your device and then run them locally on the device. For good or bad, the digital world has evolved, and this model has changed. Now, renting the software has become the new norm, an approach called SaaS. But what exactly is SaaS?

What is SaaS?

Software as a service (SaaS) enables users to access and utilize cloud-based apps via the internet. Some common examples include Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce, Zoom, and Adobe Creative Cloud. SaaS is a software solution purchased as a “pay-as-you-go” subscription. Essentially, your organization rents the use of an app, which your users then access over the internet. 

Now that we understand the definition of SaaS, check out three necessary steps for getting the best of your subscription. 

3 Necessary Steps for Getting the Best of SaaS

1. Software Selection

Software providers have a myriad of options for any given software type. It’s important to sort through these options to pick the correct features and functions that each user requires. Choosing the right product affects the cost to your organization. Further, software selection also impacts how well the tool fits your user’s needs.

2. Software Management

Everything in the IT world is constantly changing and evolving – this is especially true with software licensing. Staying on top of these changes will save your organization money and assure you that you are on the correct version for your specific needs.

3. Troubleshooting & Support

Working directly with the software companies can be challenging, especially for small to midsize users. Partnering with a trusted technology consultant or indirect reseller can save you time and energy, so you can focus on your core business.
