IT-Development announces a major marketing evolution for ClickOnSite! For several years now, many of you have been using our solution with traditional licenses, and your feedback has always helped us to improve and enhance our product. Today, we’re taking the next step by launching our Software as a Service offering, hosted by ITD.

What is SaaS?

SaaS, or Software as a Service, is a modern way for customers to access software applications via the Internet. So, rather than installing and maintaining ClickOnSite on your infrastructure, you can now access it directly online, from any connected device.

A quick overview of the SaaS market and its main trends

The SaaS model, in which software is delivered as a cloud-based service, has experienced rapid growth in recent years and is set to continue its ascent, as forecasts show:

  • Strong growth expected: The global SaaS market is set to grow rapidly over the coming years. According to McKinsey, the market is currently worth around 3 trillion USD and is expected to pass the 10 trillion USD mark by 2030, with a median growth of 22% for large US SaaS companies.
  • Increased adoption of the SaaS model: More and more companies are adopting the SaaS model to benefit from its advantages in terms of cost, accessibility, and ease of management. The expansion of the digital economy and increasing Internet access, particularly in emerging markets, are driving this adoption.
  • Evolution towards more strategic solutions: With the development of SaaS offerings, purchasing teams will be seen as strategic advisors rather than mere “cost killers”. SaaS solutions will also evolve to focus on innovation, value creation, and responsible purchasing, beyond simple cost reduction.
  • Consolidation and increased competition: As the SaaS market is highly competitive, we can expect to see consolidation through mergers and acquisitions, as well as increased competition between the major players to stand out from the crowd, whether through innovation, differentiation, or the development of new offerings.
  • Security and integration challenges: Despite the promising outlook, SaaS providers will face significant challenges in securing data hosted in the cloud, and in integrating their solutions with customers’ existing systems.

Despite its many advantages and success in many industries, SaaS is struggling to take off in the telecoms sector, but with this new offering, ITD is setting out to conquer a segment of customers more sensitive to entry price than TCO over the next ten years or so.

The advantages of ClickOnSite’s SaaS offering

It’s easy to see that this model is becoming the dominant model for supplying software to businesses. It therefore seemed essential for IT-Development to adapt to market trends, to enable ClickOnSite customers to benefit from all the advantages of this new offering, and to play the role of SaaS evangelist in the telcos. Among the advantages to remember:

  • Mobility and total accessibility: work wherever you are, whenever you want, with just an Internet connection.
  • No installation required: ClickOnSite in SaaS mode is accessible via the cloud, with just an Internet connection and no installation required on client workstations.
  • Automatic updates: Benefit from the latest features and enhancements without service interruption or intervention on your part. Updates and new features are deployed automatically by our teams.
  • Enhanced security: Our secure servers ensure your data is protected to the highest industry standards.
  • Ease of scalability: Adapt your subscription as your business needs change. It’s simple to add or remove users as needed.
  • Lower costs: No infrastructure costs or perpetual licenses. You can stagger payments, so you can manage your budget more effectively.
  • Contractual flexibility: You can terminate the experience more quickly if necessary, unlike the long-term commitments of traditional licenses.
  • Outsourced maintenance: Our teams manage software updates, maintenance, and security. You can rest easy!
  • No network infrastructure management: The icing on the cake is that you don’t have to manage the network infrastructure, so you can concentrate on your core business!

How does it work?

It’s very simple. At the pre-sales stage, you just specify your choice of subscription (license or SaaS), whichever best suits your needs. For our existing customers, we’ve set up an easy transition process from your current license to our SaaS offering. So you can keep all your data and configurations while enjoying the benefits of SaaS.

Why choose our SaaS solution?

We understand that every company has unique needs. That’s why we’ve designed our ClickOnSite offering in SaaS mode to be flexible and customizable. Whether you’re a small business or a large organization, our solution will fit you! What’s more, our support team is always on hand to help and guide you through this transition.

MXT: First customer convinced by ClickOnSite in SaaS mode

As announced in our previous article, Mexican towerco MXT chose our solution at the start of the year. But it also subscribed to the SaaS formula to benefit from increased flexibility, automatic updates, and simplified management of its software infrastructure. Thanks to ClickOnSite SaaS, MXT can now spread out its payments, easily adjust the number of users according to its needs, and concentrate on its core business without worrying about software maintenance. This collaboration marks an important milestone for ITD and perfectly illustrates the benefits of our ClickOnSite SaaS solution.
