The low initial cost of SaaS applications is very enticing to a small businesses and there is no large outflow of capital to set up an application on the computers used by the company. SaaS applications are charged based on the subscription rates per user and any additional charges for storage or bandwidth usage. So the business ends up paying for only the actual use by its employees.
SaaS applications can be used on almost any device that can be connected to the Internet and is not dependent on the hardware quality or storage devices installed on each device. There is little to no learning curve involved especially where employees are already used to working on the Internet.
There is no need for the business to worry about upgrades and patches as the SaaS application provider would be doing these improvements on an almost daily basis and the upgrades would be available to all users at all times. So there is no downtime of computers frequently associated with such upgrades where the applications are installed on the computer.
Most SaaS applications are very easily integrated into any existing software with a business. They can also easily expand their capabilities to cater to any increased usage in an organization once the minimal hardware is in position.
The owner of a small business is easily able to log onto the SaaS applications from wherever he or she is and therefore be in constant touch with the latest data available in the company’s storage. This also allows a small business to authorize its travelling representatives to use the IT knowledge of the company from wherever they are.
