What Is SaaS Development?

SaaS development is the process of building a core product for a SaaS business model. SaaS provides users with access to a core product, usually an app with desktop, web, and/or mobile accessibility, in exchange for a subscription fee (usually monthly). As long as the user remains a subscriber, they’ll retain access to this app and all their data associated with it.

 

With SaaS, developers typically conduct maintenance, issue fixes, and issue updates on a regular basis; this is part of what users are paying for.

The Benefits of the SaaS Model

SaaS businesses have many advantages over other software-related businesses, including

Consistent revenue

Instead of collecting revenue through one-time purchases, SaaS allows you to collect monthly revenue from your users. This often results in both greater revenue overall and more consistency, which you can use to plan your budget.

Scalability

SaaS products can support practically any number of users, from the handful supporting you initially to the massive quantities you’ll eventually scale to reach.

Faster launch

Because you can start with a minimum viable product and expand with new features later, SaaS products can be developed and launched faster than their counterparts

SaaS requires ongoing product support. We can provide that, including maintenance, management, and even the development of new features

Principles of Effective SaaS Development

Our SaaS development philosophy follows these important principles:

Goal alignment and communication

Good SaaS products are the result of collaboration. It’s important to work together with our clients to create the best possible product.

Agile development

Agile development allows us to remain fast and flexible as we learn about your product and evolve.

Ongoing support

SaaS development should be a long-term partnership. We’re here to help you manage your product well into the future

Minimalismg

We prioritize building minimum viable products; if they become too complex or too unwieldy, their launch will be delayed, stifling your revenue and feedback cycle

Thorough prototyping and testing allow us to catch mistakes and weaknesses early, long before they run the risk of affecting your business.
