What is Saas?

Software as a Services

Software as a Service (SaaS) allows your organisation to get up and running quickly with web based apps (such as Microsoft Office 365) at a minimal upfront cost.

Purchased on a pas-as-you-go basis, you rent the use of apps for your organisation, with all the underlying infrastructure and security managed for you.

Common SaaS Implementation


With SaaS services, log in to your account over the Internet often from a web browser located on the service provider’s network. Access productivity apps, such as email, collaboration and calendaring apps; and sophisticated business applications such as customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP) and document management applications from any computer or Internet-connected device. You pay for the use of these apps by subscription or according to the level of use.

Advantages of SaaS

  • Access to Sophisticated Applications

  • Only pay for what you use

  • Free client software

  • Access from anywhere

Software as a Service is the new gold standard for delivering applications to an end user. Provided on a pay-per-use basis, SaaS leverages both IaaS and PaaS to give you the same software as some of the biggest players in the world, at a fraction of the price. The ever-increasing lineup of available services include Exchange and SharePoint through to business intelligence and cyber security.
