STRATEGIC PLANNING FOR CLOUD APPLICATIONS

Webapper Shared Tips & Resources

Save time, deliver better customer experiences, and maximize your technology investment.

Adapting to Technological Changes as Your SaaS Platform Matures

We've been in the software industry a long time. We've watched the rise of object-oriented programming to enable event-driven & modular systems, the emergence of web apps to replace desktop software, and the explosion of SaaS to simplify global remote access, Technology is always on the move. Adapting to technological changes is essential for the long-term success and relevance of your platform. Let's take a look at a strategic plan to leverage technological advancements as your SaaS platform matures.

SaaS Onboarding Mistakes

As a SaaS developer for others (as well as ourselves), we see many common mistakes in the workflows after a customer signs up. SaaS onboarding mistakes can hinder growth and stability of SaaS companies. Recognizing these pitfalls is essential for refining onboarding strategies. We outline common SaaS onboarding mistakes to help you identify and remedy them.

Viral Marketing in SaaS

Launching your SaaS platform into the viral vortex is like riding a tech rollercoaster with a side of humor. Get instant buzz, skyrocketing user numbers, and potential unicorn status...or risk over-hype, server meltdowns, and, heaven forbid, the dreaded meme backlash. It can be a wild ride – a digital storm with a chance of chaos. Viral marketing for SaaS vendors involves strategic approaches tailored to the tech-savvy audience.

KPIs to Boost SaaS Sales Effectiveness

In 2024, the SaaS sales landscape will be defined by intense competition and evolving customer expectations. Sales teams must navigate a data-rich environment, leveraging AI-driven insights and predictive analytics to convert prospects. KPIs are crucial in growing SaaS revenue and sales efficiency by providing measurable benchmarks. They enable teams to identify successful strategies, optimize sales processes, and focus effort for the most impact. It's critical to track the right KPIs to boost sales effectiveness.

A Minimum Viable Product in SaaS

As a SaaS developer who builds custom software, organizations come to us hoping to build a new product to tackle their vertical market. A Minimum Viable Product is a basic product that contains enough features to satisfy initial customers. The challenge is knowing which features are needed to satisfy the market. Developing an MVP is often not enough – you have to deliver a minimum valuable product. Let's explore the advantages and disadvantages of producing a Minimum Viable Product in SaaS.

Single-Tenant SaaS vs. Multi-Tenant SaaS

The choice between single-tenant and multi-tenant solutions depends on factors such as client needs, security requirements, scalability, and budget. Single-tenant offers tailored solutions but at a higher cost, while multi-tenant solutions provide cost savings but with limited customization. The decision ultimately revolves around striking a balance between these factors based on the specific needs and preferences of your organization and its users.

Adding Segmentation to SaaS Sales

Adding segmentation to SaaS sales involves categorizing prospects based on shared traits, behaviors, or needs. SaaS vendors can segment sales to personalize marketing, address diverse customer needs, enhance engagement, optimize offers, and drive higher conversions and customer satisfaction. It's a great option to add to your SaaS marketing strategy for the new year. Here are some ideas on how you can segment.

Functions as a Service Use Cases

We started building serverless applications a couple of years ago. As part of that we've become quite familiar with the concept of Functions as a Service -- our CloudSee Drive product uses them extensively. Functions as a Service (FaaS) allow developers to run individual code functions in response to events, without managing any underlying infrastructure. We wanted to provide a look at FaaS use cases, including useful examples, business reasons, and potential drawbacks.
