What is a SaaS?

A SaaS (Software as a Service) is a service accessible directly from a web browser. Indeed, where most software must be downloaded on your computer to be used (Photoshop, Word, Audacity …), SaaS simply require an Internet connection. No download is necessary, because the entire service and data are based in the cloud.

Generally, SaaS software is invoiced by the month or by the year in the form of a subscription that differs according to the needs of the users. There is often a freemium formula with limited functionality and premium and business formulas for professionals.

What are the advantages of a SaaS?


Accessibility: your data is stored on servers and not on your device, so you can access the software and your data at any time and from any device. This offers a certain freedom and mobility in the use of these solutions.

Simplicity of use: SaaS solutions are regularly updated by the editor. These updates do not need to be downloaded and installed on your computer, saving you a significant amount of time.

The security of your data: the data is stored in real time on the editor’s servers, so it is impossible to lose your data due to a hardware defect or theft of a storage medium.
