The Importance of Purchasing Software SaaS All-in-one Solutions
Software as a Service (SaaS) has risen in relevance in recent years due to the many benefits it offers business owners. According to IBM, SaaS is an alternative software to the traditional software installation where businesses have to build the server, install the application and configure it. It has also been defined as a software delivery method in which applications are hosted remotely by a vendor or service provider and made available to customers on a network. Viafy solution is an example of SaaS software revolutionizing the school transportation industry.
Adoption of Saas has several benefits to an organization, among them being that it’s less costly and less time-consuming. It has high scalability and accessibility levels and allows for seamless integration with other business solutions. Interestingly, organizations can adopt two types of software SaaS: best-of-breed software and all-in-one solutions. Since most businesses want to solve a problem at hand, they are most likely to adopt the best-of-breed software forgetting its long-term drawbacks.
From a business owner standpoint, it makes perfect sense to invest in a jack-of-all-trade kind of software that not only matches the capabilities of a single software but also assists you in tackling software issues in other related areas. Here are reasons business leaders and owners should prioritize purchasing all-in-one software solutions.
a) Improved Collaboration:
All-in-one software increases workplace collaboration for businesses unprecedentedly. Through the use of a shared software solution, your various team will work collaboratively to ensure the success of your projects. Increased collaboration in your workplace leads to high employee retention rates and subsequently increased profitability. For instance, in the case of the school transportation industry, Viafy is an all-in-one software solution that ensures that transportation directors or supervisors are in collaboration with their teams.
b) Enhanced Customer Experience
The goal of any business owner is to ensure that their customers get the best experience ever from their services. All-in-one software helps your team understand the entire customer life cycle journey by giving them access to data flows through common software. With the increased collaboration that emanates from shared software, there will be an enhanced brand experience for your end customer leading to enhanced sustainability of your business.
c) Less Administrative Hassles
Maintenance and administration of software are one of the challenges that various businesses face and the school transportation sector is not an exception. While consolidated software may have different implications for different teams, its procurement, maintenance, and administration are less intensive. Since it’s just one software, you have to set it up and deploy it once, and thus, managing issues like password policies for the tool is easier for your procurement and IT teams. Buying a new license or renewing existing licenses is challenging but with all-in-one software, buying of new license and renewal is easy since the procurement team maintains a single billing process for the entire organization.
d) Less Costly
Cash flow is an important aspect of any business and in purchasing software, it should be one of the top considerations. One might think that purchasing an all-in-one solution is expensive since it consolidates several solutions into one, but that is not the case. For instance in the school transportation industry, buying software for each solution (fleet management, routing, reporting, payrolls, etc.) is more expensive compared to buying a single software that bundles all those transportation solutions into one. All-in-one software is also characterized by low costs of upgrades and maintenance.
