COVID19 has brought more changes to our lifestyle and business than anyone could have anticipated. As we slowly adapt to a new and secluded lifestyle, businesses have found an increase in demand for omnichannel platforms to cater to the needs of digitalization. Going back to the 1960s where networking was not as developed as today led businesses to use an alternate model to establish better connectivity and hence ‘time-sharing system’ were put in place. With time the simple ‘time-sharing system’ evolved, which in the current era became known as SaaS (Software as a Service.)
Why SaaS in Banking?
The pandemic has made virtual business process the new normal. Thus, there is an increased demand for an efficient model to run businesses without any disruptions.
Employees in the banking industry are no exception to this new lifestyle. It is obvious that they also need a smarter way to connect remotely and work seamlessly. That’s where SaaS plays the role of being the Digital Superpower.
Homegrown solutions have complicated architecture and hence time-consuming. It requires dedicated experts to collaborate and support the development and thus is costly. SaaS, on the other hand, comes equipped with developed solutions. Therefore, businesses can just purchase these solutions which are faster to implement and is easy on the pocket.
What makes SaaS so popular and in-demand?
- Quicker implementation as the software need not be built from scratch
- Low investment and flexible payments as SaaS uses the subscription model so you can subscribe and pay on a monthly basis
- No infrastructure required as SaaS is built on a cloud and hence, there is no requirement of managing servers
- A major advantage of SaaS is that anyone can access their business software anywhere
- The vendors take care of the regular updates, data backup and synchronization so that you can have a seamless customer experience
- As SaaS runs on a centralized platform, it is easy to capture data to provide accurate analytics. Also, businesses using SaaS have access to smarter tools which can provide useful insights on business operations
