Software as a Service (SaaS) Application Enablement
As one of the earliest so-called ASP businesses, Cobweb
understands the complexities of delivering Software as a Service
(SaaS) in a multi-customer environment. Getting the code right is
just the start. We understand the marketing, commercial and billing
challenges, and already have a base of over 5,000 small business
customers taking multiple services from us.
We believe and support the pay-as-you-go model, because your
customers gain easy access to the applications developed by you,
and managed by Cobweb. Customer pain is removed because the
complexity of managing the software, hardware, and connectivity is
handled by Cobweb, in addition to the 2nd tier 24/7 platform
support. This means your organisation can remain focused on
developing the software, acquiring new customers and delivering the
specialist application customer support.
Cobweb offers a number of business models, including traditional
hosting relationships and shared revenue, to help make your
transition to Software as a Service as easy as possible. We also
have the commercial expertise, including a large scale billing
platform and technical know-how, needed to help you make the change
from traditional on-premise model to the new world of Software as a
Service sales and delivery.
