Approaching an SaaS (Software as a Service) solution for your business is a daunting task. To help clarify the somewhat murky waters of SaaS sales pitches, blogger Fayez Mohamood offers some practical advice to help prevent a contracting disaster.
In his entrepreneur.com article “5 Tips to Avoid and SaaS Contract Nightmare”, Mohamood presents a list of insights that you must read before entering into an SaaS contract. His suggestions seem simple, yet they are easily overlooked in the chaos of building an SaaS solution.
Rather than provide a checklist for companies to cross off, Mohamood instead guides the readers through a list of critical question to ask any potential vendor. In adopting this approach, the reader is given a powerful set of tools that will allow them to customize their SaaS needs assessment, and ensure that whatever services they are purchasing actually match their business needs and expectations.
By following Mohamood’s expert advice, readers will know what questions to ask, how to ask them, and why they are asking them. Even businesses which have never used an SaaS solution will be able to emerge from the process with a solution which meets their expectations, and frees them to focus on actually running their business.
