This is the third part of my SaaS benefits mini series of posts, looking at the SaaS technology from a users point of view. You can find a link to the previous posts in this series at the end of this post.
Benefit Number 3:
All software upgrades and bug fixes are free, no installation needed, you are always on the latest version of the software.
Have you ever been told by support staff ” We do not support this version anymore!”, or you need to download (if you are lucky) a new version, or get a new CD to install. Then you install the new version, and things disappear or get overwritten? With the SaaS – Software as a Service technology these problems do not exist anymore.
Any bug fixes can be dealt with in hours, rather then month or until the next CD release. You do not have to keep on spending money for new upgrades, and you do not have to buy a new computer to run the new program on the new operating system. These, in my opinion, artificially accelerated product cycles are a thing of the past.
I have been using my word-processor for over 20 years, bought numerous upgrades, spend thousands of pounds and after all that, use virtually the same functionality as I did 20 years ago. The choice is now yours.
