What is SaaS for Digital Management?

If you are not familiar with the term ‘SaaS’, the letters stand for Software as a Service. Essentially, this means software which exists in the cloud, providing an ongoing digital management service via a subscription.

This is an alternative option to the other form of digital asset management software, which is installed in your organisation’s servers and managed by your own team. Keep reading to find out more…

What are the benefits of using SaaS to manage your digital assets?

There are several advantages to choosing SaaS for your company, one of the main ones being less management needed by members of your own staff. There is also no need for potentially troublesome installation of additional hardware, and no need for integration with your own servers.

SaaS is easy and flexible, and allows members of your organisation to access, edit and work with assets from any location and at any time. The daily workload of your employees will also become easier to manage, as SaaS makes creating, cataloguing, publishing and sharing files a quick and streamlined process.

Another benefit of using SaaS is that any upgrades or enhancements to the software will be automatically introduced, without any effort on your part. This means you will always have the latest and most effective version of the software.

The benefits of on-premises software for digital management

While SaaS undeniably has many advantages, it may not always be the right solution for your company. For instance, you may not wish to budget for the regular outgoing subscription payments required by SaaS vendors. Instead, your organisation may find it easier to invest in a one-off payment and have the software installed on your own servers, to be managed by your own staff.

Choose the DAM software solution that suits you the best

Here at iBase, we understand that one kind of solution will not suit everyone. That’s why we offer both types of software, so you can choose the one that dovetails most neatly with your business’s budget and your unique requirements.

To make a one-off payment and have the software installed on your own servers, opt for our iBase On-Premise option, which will be installed for you by our expert team (this service is included in the price).

If you would prefer the SaaS option, you can go for our enterprise-level cloud solution, available on a number of hosting plans. Because it is stored in the cloud, our iBase SaaS offers unlimited data storage, and has the capacity to cope with millions of digital assets, as well as thousands of users.

Whichever option you choose, you will receive four hours of initial online training to get to grips with your new DAM software, as well as ongoing support from our friendly and experienced team during UK business hours.

To find out more and arrange a one-to-one demo so you can see for yourself how our iBase DAM can help your organisation, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
