The development of cloud-based technology has raised the question, “What are the benefits of a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution versus installing software directly on-premise?"
Contract management systems contain highly sensitive information, and organizations should make data security their top priority when selecting a deployment method for their CLM solution. Many would argue that contract management SaaS is the ultimate deployment method for software because the data center upkeep duties are left to the provider rather than giving organizations one more solution to manage. Others may want their IT team to retain control by managing hosting in-house. While both approaches have up-sides to different organizations, SaaS has become the more popular option due to added benefits and most organizations are choosing to leave the responsibility to the software provider. This article discusses the benefits of choosing a SaaS solution over on-premise and what you can expect from CobbleStone Software when selecting us to host your CLM software.
Why Choose SaaS?
Leave the Database Maintenance to the Experts.
CobbleStone has been providing its contract management software as a SaaS solution as long as or longer than any other contract-specific platform.
CobbleStone offers both SaaS and deployed options, allowing users to choose their preferred hosting method. CobbleStone’s Contract Insight® Enterprise Edition has the option of being maintained and hosted at CobbleStone’s data center or leaving your organization to manage the software installation and maintenance.
When choosing a SaaS solution through CobbleStone, we take much of the labor off the customer because the database prep, requirements gathering, disk-space allocation, website setup, and other tasks that come with hosting software are handled by our in-house experts here at CobbleStone.
CobbleStone has achieved SOC compliance, meaning its data center has been thoroughly audited by third parties and approved as a secure and reliable provider that your organization can trust.
Expedite System Configurations and Data Importing
Configure and import data faster when the experts can access the system easier (with your approval).
When CobbleStone Support has easier access to the SaaS solution, data migration can often be expedited with legacy data imports. Client IT professionals are essential in business and their availability can be limited. CobbleStone offers highly available support and can allow your IT team to invest time in other duties while CobbleStone handles the system maintenance for your software. Configuration timelines can be shortened as our Implementation Experts have better availability to complete the work and don't need access to the client's network. In addition, SaaS solutions can be integrated with other solutions fast by using APIs with CobbleStone's in-house integration professionals.
Access Anywhere, Anytime
You can access the software anywhere, anytime instead of being restricted to your office.
On-the-go technology has made business processes simpler by giving us the opportunity to handle business matters whether we are in the office, on a plane, at home, or somewhere else. By choosing a SaaS solution with CobbleStone, you can access Contract Insight anywhere you have internet or data access to get your work done without delays.
With the addition of our CobbleStone Mobile App for iOS and Android devices, managing contracts, signing agreements, approving amendments, and communicating efficiently has never been easier with Contract Insight so users can reap the benefits from their contract management solution in the office or on the go!
CobbleStone is happy to discuss hosting options with your team and help determine the best option for you. For details on the benefits of on-premise deployment, check out our blog post, "6 Advantages of On-Premise Contract Management Software Deployment."
