What is Software as a Service (SaaS)?

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a method of software delivery that allows data to be accessed from any device with an Internet connection and web browser. In this web-based model, software vendors host and maintain the servers, databases and code that constitute an application.

What’s unique about eQuip SaaS?

The eQuip asset management SaaS model delivers a similar product as our managed hosting option. However, it has a few key differences. The up-front cost is often much lower than managed hosting. It is also highly scalable, meaning it can work with small or large organizations, and will easily change as you change. Finally, it is very easy to deploy; SaaS works through the cloud, so you always have the most up-to-date version. 

How do I choose between SaaS and Managed Hosting?

SaaS is a low-cost option that is excellent for smaller organizations. It also requires less maintenance, because you receive software updates through the cloud.

Managed hosting is commonly used for mid- to large- sized businesses with many assets or strong security requirements. Managed hosting can be deployed faster, allowing you to use your new software sooner. The extra security and performance that comes with managed hosting.

Ultimately, you should talk with the vendor to assess which option will be right for you and your organization.
