Odoo SaaS Kit

Odoo SaaS is a software distribution model in which a third-party provider hosts applications and provides access to users through the internet. Odoo SaaS kit is a well-tested and proven site management system that accepts PayPal payments. It has a framework for creating membership-based applications including account upgrades, tiered pricing levels, and multi-tenant data security in a single database. Let’s explore the advanced features and benefits of using the Odoo SaaS kit.


Applications of SaaS

SaaS is one of the three main categories of cloud computing alongside Platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). The hosted application model of SaaS is similar to the Application Service Provider (ASP).  SaaS eliminates the need for businesses to install and run applications on their computers or data centers. It eliminates the expense of hardware acquisition, software licensing, provisioning, and maintenance. SaaS applications are used by IT professionals and C level executives across industries. There are various SaaS applications for fundamental business technologies including:

Sales Management

Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

Point of Sale (POS)

Human Resource Management (HRM)

Financial Management

Billing and Collaboration
