If you’ve been researching your first CMMS software purchase (or an upgrade), you’ve realized most vendors want you to buy software as a service (SaaS) solutions.
Is SaaS Right for You?
First, let’s look at SaaS. Simply stated, SaaS is just another method of paying for CMMS software. When you opt for a SaaS subscription you’re choosing to rent software for a specified period of time instead of buying a license to use it indefinitely. The licensed purchase price for a maintenance management software package is typically equal to two or three years of SaaS payments.
If you’re on the fence about a new solution, SaaS may provide you a beneficial trial period to determine if the software meets your needs. You can change vendors at any time without abandoning a large investment—or you can purchase the software you’re using.
It also may allow you to pay for software without going through a formal procurement process. If your company divides departmental funding into operational expenses (OPEX) and capital expenses (CAPEX), you may be able to spend OPEX money on your software without making a CAPEX request.
SaaS has advantages, which is why MPulse offers our SaaS option to customers. In particular, those lower initial costs are attractive.
But the disadvantage is you never really own the software—so you need to keep paying for your subscription. And if you stop paying, you lose access.
