Unanet, Journyx and Clockware are some of the companies that provide project management software under the Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model, specifically in project time management and project tracking field. Some of these companies solely provide software using the SaaS model only, while some integrates usage of licensed software and SaaS applications. This means that the user will first have to test and access the software through the internet and once it is working perfectly, the local IT personnel can then install the full version of it on the computer.
However, not all companies provide such level of service. This is the reason why it is very important to ask your SaaS provider questions on how you can implement the full potential of the software application for ease and speed of usage. Customer support is also one of the things that should be taken into consideration as the software application should be made available 24 by 7 and potential problems might arise during certain times. Asking such critical questions is crucial to the success of the business.
SaaS project time management and tacking solutions have the following advantages: (a) reduces much risk because there is no need to acquire new software; (b) removes much of the cost to maintain and operate business functions; (c) enables users to accurately predict ongoing expenses because budget for IT is tightened and further analyzed; (d) paves the way in improving the quality of products and services offered due to ongoing ties between the vendor and user; and (e) provides the flexibility of changing usage commitments when the need arises.
