The Mbunity Development team successfully applied SaaS solutions for the retail platform. SaaS is a cloud-based software leased by a company. Companies can access their data from any device through an Internet connection. The storage and processing of data on a server hosted and maintained by suppliers are of a high degree and security, both physical (for example, from fire, theft, or seizure) and informational.
The indisputable advantage of SaaS services is its low costs. The SaaS model simplifies application management and increases agility and ease of deployment. Cloud systems are easily integrated with various systems operating in enterprises and among themselves. For a system developer, the cloud service model is an excellent incentive to develop their products.
What Companies Get When Choosing SaaS Solutions
Our client has a platform that offers a set of services for retail companies. After preliminary examination and analysis, it turned out that the best solution would be to place the project on the SaaS platform. The implementation of SaaS solutions allows you to reduce excess inventory and lost sales. Cloud service significantly reduces the production planning cycle. The cloud-based system gives full transparency to in-store management processes - wherever the owner is located in the world, they can always get an online picture of their business situation.
Each cloud system has a full-fledged and comprehensive reporting package that allows responsible managers to perform current tasks efficiently and top management to analyze key indicators like sales, inventory, turnover, surplus, lost sales, costs, the profitability of outlet vehicles, assortment, and supplier reliability.
