Will the Real SaaS Please Stand Up
Corcentric’s latest blog offers the five questions that should be asked when looking for a software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider
September 06, 2013, MCLEAN, VA — Your request to automate the company’s AP process has been approved. Now how do you go about finding the right provider to match your company’s needs? Corcentric, a leading provider of Accounts Payable automation and e-invoicing solutions, shows how to distinguish true SaaS providers from the imposters in its most recent blog. The Corcentric blog is a knowledge center for accounts payable professionals to explore automation best practices along with the latest trends and news in financial process automation.
SaaS solutions have become prevalent in a variety of disciplines including sales, HR, marketing, and accounting. The Corcentric blog defines what SaaS is and how prevalent it is in most people’s everyday lives. It then details what the advantages are to implementing SaaS rather than in-house solutions. According to the blog, the real challenge is trying to distinguish between true SaaS providers and those that purport to be SaaS, but are, in fact, imposters.
There are five questions to ask, and the blog offers those, along with the answers AP departments should be looking for. Here’s the first question:
- Does the SaaS solution run in the cloud? If you go on Facebook or Twitter, you’re already experiencing a cloud-based application. No matter where you go, as long as you have the Internet and a device, you have access to those applications. The same is true for SaaS solutions, and that is invaluable to companies who need access from anywhere, at any time.
