The Financial Benefits of AO: Rapid Inventory
Posted by Kevin Reynolds on May 29, 2014
AO: Rapid Inventory is based on an as-a-service model. This means that users only pay month to month for their usage. There are many benefits for small businesses under the SaaS model.
No Up-Front Capital Costs
With most software packages you pay a large, one-time fee to own and use the software. Most often, you will also have to pay for the hardware that works with the software, along with an installation fee. This can really put a dent in your business’s financial plan.
Some small businesses experience lulls and peaks in workflow. With the SaaS model, you only pay for how much of the service you are using per month. If your business peaks in January, then you can sign up for more logins and access. When your business slows down again in the summer months, then you can reduce your number of logins so your spending stays compatible with your revenue.
With cloud based software, you never have to worry about crashes or paying for updates. Everything is serviced remotely so you always have the most up-to-date software.
Rapid Inventory has an online payment system built into the application so you never have to mail checks, place money orders or worry about shipping.
Since all the data on Rapid Inventory is backed up on our secure servers on a nightly basis, you’ll have to pay for an expensive security specialist or worry about losing your data.
