Frequently asked questions

AAS or as a service is driving a shift towards subscription or software as a service business model as a new way to engage with your customers. Also called SaaS (software as a service) provides customers with more choices and it is easier to move toward this model than a more traditional business model of heavy upfront investment in software and hardware.
There are many benefits to a SaaS (software as a service) model such as: shifts from a CAPEX (capital expenses) to an OPEX (operating expenses), drive new consumption options, and a different customer relationship with providers, suppliers, or other vendors who support your business.
As consumers choices grow and change, businesses need to adopt new ways of meeting these customer demands. Some companies who don’t adapt to new business models may be outpaced by their competition and could eventually find themselves out of business.
Service industries are considered to be 75% more profitable than any other business unit because companies are under pressure to deliver higher levels of service at a lower cost. Companies are reporting service margins ranging from 25%-35% compared to a margin of only 10% for a new product.
Separate from both Sales or Support, the Customer Success function serves the role of helping the customer achieve the ROI of their investment post-sales. The Customer Success Manager (CSM) role typically has a "Responsible" role in Onboarding and Adoption, and a "Contributor" role in Renew and Expand.
