You've just developed a cutting edge online software application, and you're looking for the best way to provide it to your customers. Here's a brief overview of the Software as a Service (SaaS) model and how it can help:
Recurring Revenue Stream
SaaS makes it simple to enforce a subscription model, which gives you an recurring income
Remove deployment environment limitations and complexity from your development cycle. You can target your code directly at a single deployment environment - yours. This also gives greater freedom and flexibility to use additional libraries or non-standard configurations which the average hosting account may not support.
Reduce Support Costs
Completely remove customer application deployment issues from your support workload. Now you don't need to waste time chasing phantom bugs on customer hosting platforms - all deployment is within your control, and troubleshooting is easy (ok, much easier at least)!
Release Early, Release Often!
Bug fix and new feature roll-out is completely under your control; push updates to customers - give them new features as soon as they're coded using an agile sprint based release cycle.
Be a Responsive Developer
Easily collect feature requests / bug reports from within your application, and analyze application usage trends to prioritize the features your customers need most.
For Your Users
No Deployment Headaches
Installing software is easy for you, but end users are often reluctant to try new web software applications because of apprehension about getting it installed. Provide your application fully hosted to lower the barrier to entry, making it easier to try (and get hooked) on your latest and greatest software innovation.
Latest and Greatest
Users get the latest and greatest incarnation of your application with zero effort. SaaS means they always have the latest version (that you want to give them at least!) at their fingertips without any upgrade hassle, and without the interia associated with making another "one off" purchase to get the upgrade.
Give Them High Performance
End users often have unrealistic expectations of their "unlimited" shared hosting account, and of course blame your coding when your application inevitably performs badly in that overcrowded environment. We'll optimize your SaaS environment to suit your application code; your users get a fast responsive application which they'll love using. (keep them coming back for more!)
Application Upgrade Rollout
As managed hosting specialists, our engineers regularly mass-deploy upgrades and patches across a huge number of systems. We already have the tools and technology to help you to effortlessly and reliably role out version upgrades or bug fixes across your entire arsenal of application servers.
Service Level Agreements are a big differentiator in the SaaS marketplace - users enjoy the benefits cloud applications offer, but are rightly concerned about the quality and availability of the service. To overcome these fears you need to be able to put robust SLA guarantees in place on every important aspect of your service - that means you need the same from us.
All our of servers are backed by our comprehensive SLA which assures a high standard of service for your application infrastructure. In turn this enables you to provide a robust SLA to your end users.
