You wouldn’t want to rent your business assets when you could own them, right? Imagine renting all of your computers, even your desks, chairs, and office supplies. That monthly bill would stack up very quickly. Software-as-a-Service (or SaaS) is like renting your software from a third party instead of buying once and owning it forever. You pay a monthly or annual fee, having to get the budget approved year after year. If you’re renting document management software, access to your files and business processes, is contingent on paying your bill on time.
You never want to lose access to your crucial data, and document workflows are too critical to everyday processes to risk with a service interruption. There is an alternative – perpetual licensing. Purchase your software upfront. When your solution provider treats software as a product, you’ll never lose access to the application. With document management, that means never losing access to your files. There are clear advantages to this model, including cost savings over time. More and more organizations want to own their software – with perpetual licensing.
