How does Saas work?
With Saas, the software is provided centrally as a service over the Internet. Users create individual accounts, and any expenses incurred will be billed monthly or annually. The applications are not run on your computer but directly online. Provision, maintenance and updating of programs are the direct responsibility of the provider. Users only need to access the software via a web browser. That is usually possible with any internet-enabled device, so the user needs to log into the online tool with their login details.
The most popular Saas programs include project management applications, content management systems (CMS), accounting programmes, e-commerce, file management, archive management, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and human resource planning.
In the past, companies used to install multiple programs. The Saas model is much easier to use and is becoming more and more popular.
