Software as a Service or SaaS refers to a cloud service which helps TeBAS’ clients to access software applications virtually online from anywhere. TeBAS solutions and applications are hosted on the cloud and used for multiple purposes by airline and travel agencies.
SaaS is a popular alternative to traditional software installation systems, and can be thought of as a subscriber TV cable channel in which the user connects to a remotely located base on a central server and uses a license for accessing data. To put it differently, SaaS provides a method of software delivery by which data can be accessed from any device connected to the Internet and having a web browser such as desktop, laptop, tablet and even your smartphone. TeBAS is looking after servers, code and databases.
The following are some key features of SaaS and why it is important for TeBAS’ clients for being a robust ready-to-go business solution from day-1 of work.
Instead of buying software and then installing it, TeBAS clients subscribe to the software on a monthly or an annual basis. The relevant applications are used online through files saved in the cloud. Since the application is already configured, the user has a ready-to-use application. This not only reduces installation and configuration time, but also cuts down the time wasted on potential glitches linked to software deployment.
More traditional software models often come with cumbersome and time-sucking installations which can take several weeks to implement. TeBAS solution drastically cuts down this time for users in the travel and tourism industry. All you need is a net connection and log in information to access the new software. As long as an Internet connection is available, the applications can be accessed from any location.
systems are cloud-based, they are easily scalable and can be quickly integrated with other similar systems. So Travel & Tourism companies don’t need to buy additional software or servers — only a new SaaS offering has to be enabled. Also, the
effectively makes the server capacity available to accommodate the user.
TeBAS SaaS application comes integrated with industry global distribution system (GDS) provider such as AMADEUS, GALILEO, SABRE and others.
TeBAS helps its clients to receive upgrades and updates as soon as they are ready, saving time and resources.
SaaS apps can be accessed through the Internet and a by mobile devices. The quality and consistency of user interfaces have also greatly improved in the past few years, and the adoptability learning curve is low.
Thus employees who have recently joined a travel/tourism company can easily and quickly learn how to use SaaS applications.
TeBAS SaaS applications offers tutorials and guides to empower people using the software for the first time. TeBAS solutions will allow the firm’s IT engineers to focus on their core competencies. TeBAS applications provide ample scope for customization to suit the requirements of Travel & Tourism industries.
The monthly or annual subscription fees paid by companies for using TeBAS SaaS apps are much easier to budget for. SaaS systems often come with the flexibility to change or cancel the subscription. Money is also saved on capital expenditure involving infrastructure and hardware as well as hiring staff to manage the application. Besides the lower upfront costs linked with installing and implementing the system (which needs to be integrated with other software systems), TeBAS SaaS solutions also leads to lower maintenance. TeBAS pay-as-you-go pricing models enable companies to pay only for what they are using and cut down heavy licensing fees.
Since SaaS-based data is hosted on the cloud and backed up by TeBAS , it is typically more secure than traditional systems. If there is a security emergency that hits the company server or an employee’s computer, data remains secure on the servers and database of the TeBAS . This is also useful as employees often use their personal devices for office work, and these can be susceptible to data loss. But as the data is held on the cloud instead of the employee’s personal device, it remains secure.
