Why choose a SaaS model for your ecommerce implementation?

As more and more retailers venture into omnichannel retailing, try in-store marketing and continue to find ways to bridge the gap between onlin and in-store, retailers are looking at measures for managing their budgets more closely than ever before.

87% of retailers plan to spend more on ecommerce technology over the coming months and 36% of those e-retailers are concerned that they simply won’t have the budgets to do keep or develop a self-hosted site. As a result, many merchants are turning to cloud-based ecommerce platforms as an affordable alternative to a self-hosted solutions. Retailers are looking to improve their bottom line and gain a competitive edge by leveraging technology investments and shifting dollars from IT to growing their businesses.

Software-as-a-Service has skyrocketed

SaaS has indeed skyrocketed over the last few years and shows no signs of slowing down. The worldwide market is expected to grow to US$45.6 billion in 2017. And the benefits are innumerable. Enhanced collaboration, enabled and scalable growth, built-in security, unlimited support, faster implementation cycles, easy upgrades, pay as you go fee structures and the list goes on. If you really think about it, with 36% of retailers lacking the funds to keep up, 51% of them having trouble finding qualified staff and 32% that simply have too many older systems to integrate, it’s no small wonder that having in-house e-commerce systems is just not feasible anymore.

Here is what we see as the top 3 reasons to migrate to a cloud-based shopping cart

  1. According to Gartner Research the annual costs of maintaining a self-hosted infrastructure could cost as much as four times the initial purchase price
  2. Companies switching to SaaS can reinvest back into their business. In fact, 62% of CIOs who have recently switched say they are reinvesting the costs back into their business
  3. SaaS Solutions are scalable, secure, and don’t require a high-level of expertise to use
