Employees today are more mobile than ever. People’s work nowadays isn’t necessarily stationed in front of one desktop computer, at one desk, in one office location; instead, people are roving around and working from a wide range of locations, with all sorts of devices at their fingertips.
This has led organizations to adopt a whole new approach to workplace modernization. Rather than simply outfitting their offices with computers, they’re looking at more holistic ways to empower everyone, everywhere to succeed.
More and more these days, those ways are centered around Software as a Service (SaaS). According to Digital Journal, the global market for SaaS solutions is growing at an astronomical rate – research from Allied Market Research showed that the SaaS market was worth $121.33 billion in 2020, and that figure will balloon to $702.19 billion by 2030, for a growth rate of 18.82% compounded annually.
Silas Garrison, CEO of HS GovTech Solutions, explained that SaaS is becoming more popular because it helps organizations to both modernize the workplace and minimize costs.
"SaaS is an emerging technology, which allows enterprises access and storage of data online,” Garrison said. “Agility, scalability, reliability, and flexibility are some of the major characteristics associated with SaaS technology. SaaS reduces IT infrastructure cost of a company to some extent. This is the prime reason behind increased adoption of SaaS applications among companies.”
Across a wide range of sectors and market sizes, SaaS is proving to be a value add in today’s economy. Let’s take a look at a few ways that organizations are putting SaaS to good use:
Customer relationship management (CRM)
For organizations juggling many customers, in many locations, handled by many employees, a cloud-based software solution is a great way to coordinate everything. Leaning on SaaS for this purpose makes everyone’s life easier.
Business intelligence (BI)
Looking to take a deep dive into data-driven insights that can help your organization truly flourish? SaaS solutions for business intelligence can draw upon analytics from many disparate sources and use them to produce real, actionable results.
Supply chain management
It’s never been more challenging to get products from point A to point B than it is right now. Complex geographical challenges, staffing shortages, economic adversity, and high levels of customer demand all put pressure on the supply chain in one way or another. SaaS solutions can bring a much-needed jolt of efficiency to the process.
Buying and selling merchandise is another process that can become overly complicated in today’s climate – but again, SaaS solutions can help simplify it. No matter who’s buying what, or where, a cloud-based software tool can streamline the process for everyone involved.
During challenging times, it’s crucial to find technology solutions that drive efficiency – and at Zones, that’s what we do best. We are proud to offer SaaS tools for our clients that make it easier to manage projects, teams, clients, documents, stakeholders, and more.
