Low investment costs:You do not have to pay a larger amount up front, instead the costs are spread over the entire period of use.
Constant development:The software is continuously developed and improved. Updates are available immediately.
Less work:Since the software runs as a web application, there is no effort and costs for setup, maintenance and updates. These tasks are handled by the offering company.
Scalable:Without great costs and effort, more or fewer licenses can be added as needed and are immediately available.
Platform independent:The software can be used from any device, regardless of the operating system or operating system version. This eliminates the cost of purchasing specialized hardware.
Flexible:Licenses are not purchased per workstation, but per user. This allows working from different devices e.g. in the home office or field service.
Data security:The data is backed up several times on the server and is thus protected against loss.
Data sharing:Data can be shared easily and conveniently.
Running costs:A monthly license fee must be paid.This is directly offset by the lower investment costs. It should also be mentioned that running costs are also incurred when buying or self-developing software, whether through a possible support contract or in the form of salaries of permanent employees for installation and maintenance. We use the license income for the corresponding services and for the constant further development of our product.
Data protection:In principle, no SaaS solution is as secure as a computer that is stored offline in a vault. Furthermore, if the servers are located in the USA, the US security authorities have direct access to the stored data. Our application and the data behind it are operated with the latest security standards on servers within multi-secured data centers in Germany. This means that the data is better secured than on most desktop systems in practice.
Dependence on the provider*:The software runs on computers of the provider, not with the users of the software. This results in a dependency relationship (vendor lock-in), both in terms of future pricing policy and the implementation or removal of functions.
