The software business is a constantly changing industry (right, like we didn’t know!) and SaaS & Subscription-based models have gained a lot of ground in the last few years. We see at Avangate a steady increase in subscription-based transactions, either from SaaS, online services or downloadable software that comes with a subscription attached. More precisely, 42% of sales volumes passing through the Avangate platform were subscription-related in 2011, compared to 48% in 2012, 55% in 2013, 63% in 2014, 70% in 2015, and a whopping 73% in H1 2016. It’s not an accident, it’s a trend and a strong one. All known facts, but what about the transition to SaaS & subscriptions? How is that going for the companies that embrace it?
Avangate is conducting a research on exactly this topic, the transition to SaaS and Subscriptions, in order to take a look at the necessary steps, challenges and success factors implied by such a business decision.
