In the current day, when any business wants to buy software, the chances are they’re looking for SaaS, or software as a service. In contrast to 10+ years ago; any software, email or Microsoft Office, it was installed on the PC itself. However, in today’s world, the services are mostly an app that are accessed via the internet.
It’s extremely rare if a software provider doesn’t offer a SaaS platform. Why? Because it allows companies to get up and running quickly and with very little costs.
Its so popular that the average small to medium-sized business will have between 25 to 50 SaaS subscriptions, at an average of £15.00 Per month each, meaning that a small to medium-sized business will be spending anywhere between £375 & £750 a month on subscriptions… equalling to £9,000 Per Year.
In this blog, we will cover what they could be, how important they are and how working with Candio can help you increase the number of subscriptions your customer base will take from you.
What are SaaS Softwares?
Here are the top 10 SaaS companies according to CRM giant, HubSpot.
- SurveyMonkey – an online survey marketing tool
- HubSpot – marketing, sales and client relationship management software
- Microsoft – Cloud, computer, apps and more
- Asana – Tasks, projects and team management
- SAP Concur – travel and expense management services
- ProofHub – team project planning
- MailChimp – marketing, email and automation platform
- Canva – easy-to-use graphic design and creative software
- Shopify – eCommerce platform for online stores and retail point-of-sale systems
- Slack – messaging programme designed specifically for office environment
They’re all very different from one another. However, they have one thing in common… You pay for them monthly via Direct Debit.
Many businesses believe that they can’t run without these softwares – the same way they feel about their telephone system!
How Important Are They?
It’s hard to remember a time when a business didn’t rely on a CRM to manage all their customer interactions, an email software for external communication or Slack for internal messaging.
In most SMBs, those SaaS products will be crucial to everything they do, and as a Telecoms company, you have entered the Subscription space.
Cloud telephony is now a subscription-based service depending on how many users the customer requires… The same as most SaaS products. If Hubspot went down for an afternoon, a customer would feel the same pain as if their phone system stopped working. That’s the world we are in now, and it’s more important than ever to keep adapting and evolving to stay ahead of trends!
