Free Webinar Hosted by PEER 1 Offers Strategic Insight on Issues Surrounding SaaS Development
PEER 1 will host a free webinar with partners OnDemand Solutions and Mural Ventures, Tuesday, June 24 at 2 p.m. EDT. In this first-time event, industry experts will share their extensive experience and innovative methodologies that have helped ISVs build successful and profitable Software as a Service (SaaS) applications. Attendees will learn how to escape pitfalls that have hobbled other ISVs, potentially saving their businesses thousands of dollars.
SaaS is here to stay, with an estimated 25 percent of all software delivered in the next few years expected to be SaaS, according to Gartner projections. As successful SaaS companies know, in order to take advantage of the considerable benefits of this delivery method you must run your company in a completely new and different way rather than rely on the traditional methods. This webinar will help companies avoid many of the more common mistakes.
What: Free webinar on “The Seven Deadly Mistakes of ISV SaaS Offerings,” which include:
- Cannibalizing your current revenue by providing your existing offering to the same customers
- Underestimating the power of and need for customer service in the SaaS model
- Offering free trials that don’t convert prospects to customers
- Underestimating the importance of web-centricity for marketing, sales and support
