SaaS Management Apps: A Definitive Guide
Choosing the best SaaS management app can feel like a daunting task. There are so many options to choose from, and you don’t want to make the wrong decision. There are three different types of apps that cover all aspects of managing your SaaS subscriptions: self-service, full service, and hybrid.
Self-service apps are great for small to medium sized businesses and individuals that just need the basics in order to manage their subscriptions. These include simple tools like invoices, statements, payments, contracts, etc. In contrast, full service apps offer everything from contract management down to help with user adoption strategies and post sales support while also providing some automation features like automated custom pricing based on usage or integrations with popular CRMs so you can keep track of all your customers at one time. Finally hybrid offers something for everyone: it still has self-service capabilities but also comes bundled with more advanced features including integration with other third party software as well as an option to upgrade any app individually without having to migrate to a new system.
The most cheap option is a self-service app, but if you’re looking for more features then a full service or hybrid system will be better.
A few examples of SaaS management apps are Expensify, Zoho Subscriptions and Invoiceberry. There is no one size fits all solution to manage your subscriptions so it’s important to research what type of software works best for you as well as finding out what kind of support they offer in case there were any glitches with your purchase process or analytics data after implementation (i.e., getting the most bang for buck).
Once that’s settled, it comes down to budget: all three types are priced differently so you’ll have to weigh the pros and cons against your company’s financial situation before making a purchase decision.
