SaaS vs. On-Premise Software
What Makes More Sense for a Small Business?
Businesses are increasingly faced with the decision of buying software outright versus going with a SaaS (software as a service) program. This is becoming the norm for all types of software, including accounting software, CRM, CAD, ERP and many others.
From a software standpoint, the SaaS programs are often more appealing because they are likely newer technology, they probably have much more modern and cleaner interfaces and often they have superior functionality. Then you see the price, and you think, “wait, I have to pay a monthly (or annual) fee forever?”
Now, in the 21st century, software for Job Shops makes real sense to keep ahead of the competition. Technology has improved a lot in the last few years and cloud has revolutionised how we access our software with browsers and apps. One of the founders of E2 Shop, Greg Ehemann, expands more on this concept here.
Of the many challenges facing today’s job shop owner, scheduling has to be among the toughest. Obviously, production and manufacturing scheduling software helps take much of the guesswork out of running your shop efficiently, but scheduling is still part art, and part science. E2 Shop has an excellent job scheduling system, for more information please check out www.wmssoft.com.au/e2shop.html
