Why Solutions as a Service?

03/2021, 2 min read

Total cost of ownership is one of the key drivers for businesses decision making when sourcing Solutions as a Service. Increased cost transparency, solution scalability and flexibility are further arguments why businesses are choosing SaaS.

When businesses compare between deploying and maintaining solutions inhouse or as a service, they are often basing the decision making on the following factors: investment longevity, total cost of ownership and business criticality. In the past unified collaboration, specifically video, solutions were complex, expensive and seen as a long term investment by businesses. Thus building the relevant, dedicated internal IT infrastructure and operations to source, manage and support said solutions was seen necessary.


Benefits of a Device as a Service

  • Minimal up-front investment required
  • Transparent costs
  • Scales in line with your changing needs
  • Constant access to industry specialists
  • Increased productivity – focus on use, rather than management
  • Wider ecosystem and future solutions available

Solutions have since matured to a point where they can be sourced easily, securely and cost efficiently with the relevant managed services. Businesses are no longer required to invest heavily, up front, into a solution by forecasting also medium and long term capacity needs but can source Solutions as a Service, starting with a minimum viable investment, to ensure the return on the investment is sound. With SaaS, businesses do not have to manage the IT themselves but source the Solution together with the relevant maintenance and support - all from Elisa Videra. Elisa Videra will not only deliver the solutions as a service but provide business with the means to track the return on their investment.

Secure the maximum value of your existing investment, reach full transparency of costs with minimal up-front investment.


Unified collaboration solutions are evolving rapidly and businesses are sometimes concerned their new investments are not supporting their medium or long term needs. When business are choosing between different solutions and ultimately where their resources are invested, Solutions as a Service can act as a secure and easy way for business to try and test out solutions without tying their future to a specific solution for years. Elisa Videra offers flexible and scalable plans for the Solutions to enable businesses to evaluate solutions and grow the solution base in line with their actual, and evolving, needs. This way customers can choose the best solution for them to get started with and add additional solutions as they seem fitting.
