Why Choose Dynamics 365 CRM SaaS
How Does SaaS Increase the ROI?
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Solutions delivers every time when it comes to streamlining and automating your business processes and enhance the ROI of your technology investments. CRM is one of the solutions with the highest ROI of software platforms, making it a low-risk implementation. The flexibility of Dynamics 365 CRM solutions enable greater productivity and profitability along with reduced administrative costs and working in the familiarity of the Microsoft environment.
The key to ensuring you maximise your ROI is to take advantage of Microsoft’s software-as-a-service SaaS offerings. Microsoft has invested heavily in recent times to deliver best in class SaaS in the cloud and to meet ever evolving market and customer demands and expectations.
What is a SaaS Model?
Software-as-a-service is a popular cloud-based distribution model in which software business applications are hosted remotely by a provider. These applications are available online via a public or private cloud. Usually, SaaS is provided through a multi- tenant architecture, which is a public cloud environment in which different users operate on a single piece of software that is owned and maintained by the software vendor.
One of the key benefits of multi-tenant platforms is that the vendor shoulders much of the responsibility – from managing upgrades to providing all the support and expertise you need and so you are not left to deal with any issues yourself!
Easy & Fast Deployment Option:
One of the key factors in driving the high SaaS adoption rates is the fast, flexible and cost saving deployment options when compared to the traditional on-premise route. With the on-premise option, it often requires significant upfront costs and risks. The time and resources required to acquiring and maintaining your hardware can be challenging and may take many months and longer, to reach a semblance of a successful deployment.
With the SaaS model, you do not have to concern yourself about the hardware, as once the end users get set-up, they are good to go with the SaaS CRM application. The benefits are many, with the ease of software-as-a-service significantly reducing the traditional deployment costs and helping you to achieve a quick and full ROI CRM investment in a very short space of time. With SaaS, you also automatically get weekly and monthly updates, resulting in savings in time, resources and money.
Lower Costs with Flexible Pricing Plans:
As well as the savings in lower cost of deployment, SaaS users can also enjoy savings in the long-term costs. You have the option to pay for your SaaS through monthly or annual subscription fees.
Some Organisations may be slow to adopt a SaaS model as they may think that ongoing subscription options may work out more expensive than the “one-off” fee models of on-premises solution pricing. CRM on-premise models will often require significant ongoing outlay costs due to the purchase and ongoing maintenance of the hardware systems.
With the SaaS model, you can avoid the worry of maintenance and management of often expensive hardware infrastructures. Whereas SaaS provides flexible pricing options where organisations have the option to subscribe and unsubscribe to their preferred SaaS features as and when needed and have the flexibility to respond to evolving business needs and demands.
Greater User Adoption:
User Adoption is critical to any CRM Implementation, regardless of on-premise or SaaS and when businesses achieve a high rate of user adoption this boosts the ROI of the CRM technology investment. The quicker end-users embrace and fully optimise the CRM solution, the faster they take advantage of all the features and capabilities which the system offers, for example, enabling the Sales Teams to optimise the Sales Pipeline to drive greater productivity and increased revenue.
Software as a Service has proven to have higher user adoption rates due to its user interface (UI) and the SaaS applications are available online, where users can access the software across multiple devices – from desktop to mobile. This provides greater user access and team collaboration while on the Go and enabling greater productivity and efficiencies.
