What is the SaaS model?
SaaS is built on a one-to-many approach in which service providers deliver a single application to numerous consumers based on their preferred subscription plan. One of the biggest benefits of the SaaS model is that it does not require end users to have the processing capacity to execute the program.
To operate SaaS apps, all they need is an internet connection and access to a web browser. They also don’t have to worry about any updates because it’s hosted software and the service provider handles everything.
What are the main advantages of the SaaS development services?
The active use of SaaS opens up new horizons for corporate users, and the business receives undoubted benefits:
- short terms of introduction of new modern applications;
- availability of timely updates and new versions;
- support for active business users anywhere;
- low power requirements for the user’s PC;
- low cost of ownership of the application.
Many experts assume that in the coming years the market for SaaS applications will develop rapidly and the demand for them will increase.
Why is a custom SaaS application better than a ready-made one?
Here are a few benefits of a custom SaaS application:
- Uniqueness and competitive advantage. An application created specifically for the client’s needs may become the brand’s face, attracting new clients and distinguishing itself from the competitors. The distinctiveness of custom development lies in the fact that the design of the application entails not just the color of controls and buttons, but also a well-thought-out UX, which is built with the demands of users, up to a specific target group, in mind.
- Risk minimization. When developing a custom solution, the code belongs only to the customer and does not depend on third-party developers. While implementing a boxed solution, the code is only rented.
Fast implementation of custom solutions. Despite the fact that launching a custom application is several times longer than a boxed solution – it can take up to 7 months, the client wins in the speed of implementing his custom requests, which will most likely never be implemented in boxed solutions.
How much do SaaS development services cost?
The cost of SaaS application development is determined by a variety of criteria, since it is a full solution – feature kinds, product design, product development, and so on. You can build a basic MVP for $30K+, but if your SaaS subscription model is intricate and dependent on several aspects, it will cost more because a more thorough approach will be required.
