SaaS is a new model of how software is delivered. SaaS refers to software that is accessed via a web browser and is paid on a subscription basis (monthly or yearly). Different from the traditional model where a customer buys a license to software and assumes ownership for its maintenance and installation, SaaS presents significant advantages to the customer.
SaaS is faster and a cost effective way to getting implemented. There are no hardware, implementation or acquisition costs involved to run the application from the customer's side. It's the responsibility of the SaaS vendor (us) to manage and run the application with utmost security, performance and reliability. The SaaS Model is therefore more than simply delivering an application over the Internet, it is a whole business mentality, requiring highly automated business processes and sophisticated support engines in addition to the application itself.
