What is Software as a Service (SaaS)?

You may have heard about “cloud computing”, “virtualisation” and “software as a service” (SaaS), but what exactly is it?

SaaS is just like having software applications such as Microsoft Office on your own computer, except they’re securely hosted on a service provider’s servers on your behalf.  Simply click on a shortcut on your desktop PC or laptop – or fire-up your web browser – and you can use the software applications in exactly the same way.

The applications are updated and upgraded for you automatically, so you always benefit from the latest versions without the need to purchase costly licences or upgrade your PC hardware.  Initial installations and updating is quick and easy because the service provider does all this for you, leaving you free to focus on your fee-earning work.

Spread the cost by paying monthly and only pay for what you need – ideal for business start-ups and for meeting the fluctuating demands of contract-based or seasonal work.  Its flexibility also means your IT system evolves as your business needs grow and change. You maintain control over access, usage and data security.

SaaS is perfectly suited to homeworking and multi-site businesses, giving secure access to your applications and files from any location, and compatibility will never be an issue again as all users work on the same software version.
