Software as a Service for Resellers
It’s not every company that wants to outsource its entire IT function. However, there are times when there is a requirement for a particular application, such as email or enterprise software including ERP or CRM systems, where there is a reluctance to take it in-house in the normal way. High maintenance, technical complexity and excessive cost can all influence these feelings but now there is a very viable alternative.
Software as a Service or SaaS is becoming an increasingly popular option for kinds of Resellers. It allows Resellers to effectively ‘consume’ software, paying only for what they use and making accessible those key business applications that they previously had to reject. The SaaS provider takes full responsibility for the purchase, installation, configuration and support of the chosen software, delivering the front end to the client who simply subscribes on a per user, per month basis.

- Office – Traditional desktop applications such as MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Acrobat
- Email – Common email platforms, including MS Exchange and Outlook
