According to a recent survey by Internet Retailer many of the online retailers surveyed were not happy with their current ecommerce platform and nearly half of those surveyed said they were looking for a new online system.
The survey also found that many online retailers were looking for a "software as a service" platform (SaaS) and that 40% of those surveyed said that they would like to switch to a SaaS platform.
A SaaS ecommerce platform is a great choice for the majority of retail businesses who want to setup an online shop quickly and with the knowledge that the website hosting, security and maintenance is all taken care of.
The SaaS model also helps keep the set-up costs to a minimum and more often than not an affordable, monthly subscription, which can help businesses with their cashflow.
SaaS providers tend to be constantly evolving their ecommerce platform and this is a big benefit to the online retailer as it usually means the whole platform is upgraded, so the costs associated with upgrades are rolled into their subscription meaning they have a level of future-proofing.
