Saas-Software as a Service

Software-as-a-Service has many benefits for today's companies. Perhaps most importantly, since it is a service, not software, it hits the financials as an expense and requires no use of capital budget. The IT requirements are greatly simplified for companies with limited staffing or those who want to make platform a non-issue.

With Blue Ridge, you can rest assured that our SaaS solutions are as robust as any legacy licensed software, so you sacrifice nothing and gain the flexibility and ease of deployment you want.
