The business world is constantly shifting its paradigm to figure out the best way to flourish a company. For example, a food hall in New Orleans takes care of tedious restaurant business tasks, such as handling permits, to make it easier for small restaurants to expand their businesses and depart if need be.
When Salesforce.com launched 20 years ago, the startup became a trailblazer for their software as a service (SaaS) model and many other business sectors have utilized the strategy for their own market.
While all new businesses won’t become multi-billion dollar corporations, it is still possible for them to provide consumers with exceptional services. The ScAAS model essentially tells small businesses not to worry about the minuscule details in running a company, such as coworking operators who deal with the complications of real estate and office management for a monthly fee. This allows members of a coworking space to focus solely on their business.
Rented.com is another example of how the ScAAS model can work for a multitude of business sectors. They provide an in-house team of rental managers to property owners and give them access to expert managers, who help with minute details.
So how does a small business determine what they need out of the ScAAs model? First is establishing what responsibilities you are not willing to give up.
Once you can identify your workload, then create a list of things your business does or needs to do to keep going. Narrow down the activities necessary to keep your business successful, then ration them out among employees.
Since ScAAS firms are relatively new, it is important to research and see if there is one out there that can truly tend to your company’s needs.
Finally, keep in mind that the ScAAS provider is there to help your company grow, not suppress it. Little nuances to your business should be reserved for those in the know until you can fully trust the firm.
The ScAAS revolution is still in its early stages, but shows huge promise for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
