Software as a service development
A Service gives companies great options for affordable software
and IT infrastructure. Often though, companies are left with multiple apps,
multiple sign-ins, multiple control panels and multiple headaches. Software As
A Service should be easier to use than a perpetual license, and more
functional, but often it just creates problems. Your IT development should
include these following solutions for your software.
Integrated Control Panels
Every window or tab your browser has open increases the load on
your processor. Computer processors slow down by keeping track of multiple
processes, including overloaded web browsers, multiple applications running
simultaneously and graphic processing between control interfaces. Many desktop
computers can handle all of these well, just a little slower. Many tablets and
smartphones get thoroughly overwhelmed by running too many processes at once.
Additionally, the mental processes of employees and other users
get bogged down by multiple control interfaces. Keeping track of hotkeys,
mouse/touch interfaces, and other unique issues for each application lowers
efficiency each time a user has to switch between interfaces. Do customers have
two different applications for making orders and tracking them? This increases
the time it takes for a customer to learn your systems and get satisfactory
answers to their questions.
One control panel for multiple resources can give your employees
and other users the ability to efficiently handle their workload. Additionally,
integrated control panels decrease data loss from switching information between
programs either manually or via spreadsheets.
Many SaaS programs are dedicated to each user. This means that if
you are not signed into the program, the program does not work. For people
using multiple accounts on multiple platforms (Facebook, Google+, your company
CRM, Adobe suits and more), they must manage their passwords to save time and
increase security. Creating one password the employee remembers opens your business
up to hacking, but employees needing to reset their passwords every time they
log in does not create efficient work habits. The right IT development can
manage your password using secure master passwords which prevent cross-account
hacking and give your employees ease of mind from only having to memorize one
Development as a Service
Because of the ease of cash flowing powerful software systems,
companies are increasingly moving towards SaaS products. Because of the unique
problems caused by SaaS products, companies are also learning the power of
Development as a Service. In these instances, companies are relying more on 3rd
Party specialists to customize and integrate web and mobile apps with their
software solutions. This leaves in-house IT to focus on troubleshooting
hardware and software and training other employees.
