On Demand services is a system in which users pay for a service only when they make use of it, which allows customers to manage their expenses more efficiently and without the obligation of having a fixed cost that they must pay, for example, at the end of the month.
This modality may be familiar to many people, considering that some of the most used mobile applications in daily activity such as Uber have an On-Demand system implemented. But its scope can be even greater, since this service has the potential to play a very important role in the operation of a company.
One of the benefits of On-demand for a company is that it provides a series of non-limiting services, since its main feature is that it offers resources on demand. Likewise, this implies a significant cost reduction, since you pay only for what you use, and in the event that requirements arise over time, resources can be incorporated with additional costs.
Being similar to an online or television service, this system is a new service standard associated with the technology industry and can be replicated to business operations and thus improve many operational aspects of an organization. Hyperlink InfoSystem can assist you with the development of an on-demand app.
Benefits of On-demand Service
Unprecedented payback. On-Demand deployments are 50-90% faster, with a total cost of ownership five to ten times lower than that of installed software.
Implantation is cheaper both initially and in the long term.
No hardware - no hardware to buy, upgrade or maintain
No Facilities - no operating systems, database servers, or application servers to install
No Consulting - No need for consultants or staff to manage and update it every few years.
However, even more important is long-term savings.
An estimated two-thirds of IT time and budget is spent on infrastructure maintenance and upgrades.
Ease of Handling:
Administrators can tailor processes and define how different departments and workgroups view data, while ensuring that users can only access data for which they have authorization.
Promotion of Innovation:
By eliminating the facilities-specific problems associated with traditional application development, the On-Demand model frees developers to focus on creating solutions that deliver real business value.
Independence of Physical Location:
It can be used from anywhere, because it is accessed through the Internet, with the user identification and password. Also, there is the possibility of using the system 24 hours a day.
Reasons To Consider On-demand App
For years, there has been an increasing number of mobile app on the market that are offered "on-demand" instead of self-hosted "on-premise" solutions. Since on-demand software providers see themselves as service providers and partners, including when it comes to hosting, they also use the term "Software-as-a-Service" (SaaS). Features that On-demand app offers:
In contrast to on-premise solutions, which require a long preparation time for installation and implementation, on-demand solutions are like software-as-a-service ready for immediate use. The administrative effort is also lower with SaaS platforms, because there is usually no in-house IT administration. The responsibility for the maintenance of the software as well as backups and security lies with the provider. No further time has to be invested here. Another point to look out for is support. A reliable help desk is an important plus point for many SaaS systems. Take the subject of employee training, for example: SaaS learning platforms can easily be used in parallel with your company's existing IT systems. This means that the introduction of such a system can be carried out without any technical effort and, under certain circumstances, also requires fewer consultation levels within the company.
Many Software-as-a-Service solutions impress with their simplicity when used. Thanks to its uncomplicated application and intuitive design, it is easy to understand even for your employees who may not be that familiar with the technology.
Especially in the field of e-learning, user-friendly systems are the be-all and end-all. For training courses that require regular repetition - your products may be updated continuously or your employees have to undergo annual compliance training. They make sense because they support the sustainability of the training and also serve as a kind of back-up for the everyday application of the new content in practice.
There is often the option of branding the software. By integrating your company's own logo and adapting the color scheme in your own corporate identity, your employees feel at home in the area. This adjustment normally applies equally to on-demand and on-premise solutions.
The great advantage of a browser-based on-demand solution is its efficiency. If users can log in via their browser from anywhere, online training is much more efficient than when it is tied to specific devices.
