SaaS as a Brand New Software Delivery Model for Shareware Authors and Vendors

In the next three software turnover via years Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) will increase to $10 billion. If you would like to participate in this explosive growth by setting a brand new software delivery model for your business then we invite you to partner with Logic Software Inc and its market-unique SaaS solution Logic Protect. This articles will show you how you can boost your software sales.

The software industry is undergoing a profound shift. The numerous disadvantages of the traditional software delivery model, in which the customer acquires a perpetual license and assumes responsibility for implementation and management, have pushed customers to demand alternative ways to consume software, such as software-as-a-service.

Industry analysts are actively tracking the growing demand for SaaS among all sectors of the software marketplace. For example, Gartner predicts that by 2008, more than 50 percent of software purchased will be via service.

Software vendors that can overcome mentioned market challenges to quickly capitalize on the burgeoning demand for SaaS will be well-positioned to differentiate themselves from the competition and increase their market share.

Fundamentally different from traditional perpetual-license-based software delivery, the SaaS model offers benefits for both vendors and users.

SaaS is an ideal way for users to take advantage of using the software with minimal risk and maximum ROI. By making software available on a pay-as-you-go basis SaaS eliminates the need for a significant upfront investment. Moreover, instead of stagnating with expensive packaged or custom solutions that no longer provide value, or that fell short of expectations in the first place, users can readily switch to a new application after the subscription ends. Thus, customers consider SaaS as an opportunity to reduce both cost and risk.

SaaS benefits software vendors as well. SaaS lets vendors take advantage of recurring streams of revenue, differentiate themselves from the competitors and increase sales opportunities by reaching out to the customers that may not have been able to afford conventional software solutions. However, the challenges vendors need to overcome to successfully launch a SaaS offering and deliver it to end users are significant. Because SaaS is so different from perpetual license-based delivery, software vendors must closely examine business model, code and operational issues in order to bring SaaS products to market.

Logic Protect offers software vendors a unique business solution to set up a SaaS business model that embraces software copy protection, online and offline activation and license management features. Preserving the conventional perpetual-license-based software delivery feature Logic Protect stands out as a unique copy protection and license management tool that provides vendors with both: the traditional and SaaS options of software delivery.

This lucrative opportunity of SaaS together with the conventional delivery feature will definitely turn out to be a 100% repayable investment for a vendor. Partnering with Logic Protect vendors are able to deliver an A+ offering to their customers resulting in sales increase.
