SaaS Business

A SaaS business is one whereby software is licensed to end users from a central location, usually delivered via the web. “SaaS” stands for “software as a service” and customers are generally billed monthly. Microsoft Office 365, Dropbox, Google G Suite, and Slack are all examples of SaaS businesses. Contrast those with the old days of buying software that came in a box and was installed through a peripheral drive.
