Cloud-based VoIP options have recently been made more affordable to small and medium sized businesses, which means they are looking into all of their available choices when it comes to using new VoIP telephone technology. V1 VoIP makes sure that our VoIP resellers remain up to date with everything there is to know about the VoIP services and solutions we offer, ensuring they are poised to offer business customers what they need. When it comes to cloud computing, V1 offers three different cloud computing platforms.
Here V1 VoIP explains a brief overview on three different cloud-computing options for our resellers to offer businesses:
Software as a Service (SaaS): SaaS is a form of cloud computing that is able to send a solo application through a browser in order to reach its intended customers. Many types of HR departments often use this form of cloud computing. It is popular because it is easy use of and offers a variety of desktop applications available. SaaS is widely accepted to have been introduced to the business world by the Salesforce Customer Relationship Management (CRM) product. As one of the earliest entrants it is not surprising that CRM is the most popular SaaS application area, however e-mail, financial management, customer service and expense management have also gotten good uptake via SaaS.
Platform as a Service (PaaS): PaaS is a variation on SaaS because this platform allows a business to create their own applications. When communicating with their customers, these applications can be utilized. PaaS is especially useful in any situation where multiple developers will be working on a development project or where other external parties need to interact with the development process.
Utility Computing (UC): Many businesses are starting to use UC platforms more commonly as the many features that come along with utility computing become more necessary in day to day business.
