What is Scalability? Why is it important to My Business?

February 7, 2019

Scalability is the capability of a system to handle an increasing amount of work and to accommodate growth.

There has been a huge push to the cloud over the past number of years. Scalability has become an important factor into finding the right solution that meets that push.

As a better way to manage our customer’s servers, DAKCS began to offer Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud solutions that provide customers with several distinct advantages. Over the next few weeks, we’ll dig into the specifics in our Grow With DAKCS Article Series.

Check out DAKCS’ Top 5 Reasons for SaaS Whitepaper on InsideARM for an overview into a SaaS solution.

Scalability and SaaS

Today, we’re focusing on the first of five reasons for SaaS that will help you — Scalability.

Last year, DAKCS co-sponsored an Employee Performance survey with AccountsRecovery.net. One finding showed that nearly 60% of the collection agencies expected the size of their staffs to grow in the latter part of 2018.

More than 25% of surveyed companies expected the number of employees to increase by at least 10% in 2019.

With an in-house server, growing the number of users quickly reaches hard limitations, and upgrading technology is expensive and time consuming. Under the SaaS model, these limitations evaporate into almost nothing.

No Hardware Costs Involved with SaaS

With SaaS, customers’ servers live in the cloud. So in other words, your servers are someone else’s problem. DAKCS maintains the servers and can simply add more power and space to your company’s servers at any time. You don’t have to call your hardware provider which means that in SaaS, scalability is just there. No added estimates or unknown installation costs.

Less Time Investment with Scalable Solution

With an in-house server, an agency begins with a call to a hardware provider to discuss their options. After committing to a solution, the agency is led into playing a waiting game for the new hardware to arrive.

After scheduling a time for installation, they start planning for a server conversion to get their data to the new hardware. Then an install of the needed software is required. All of this must be done before agents can even begin working lengthening the entire process and it could take weeks to complete.

With SaaS, a DAKCS expert can increase your software’s storage and power overnight. In addition, only on an as needed basis.

SaaS = Scalability

A Software as a Service solution can save your company time and money. Especially as you plan on growing your business in the next few years. In addition that means having a scalable software that can adapt to your business needs will help.
