Solutions by Computer launches SaaS software option

By Murray Pollok25 November 2009

US rental software company Solutions by Computer is launching a Software as a Service (SaaS) version of its Enfinity rental management system.

SaaS means that the Solutions will host the software, with rental companies accessing the system through web browsers. It means that customers do not have to invest in their own computer servers and reduces the need to maintain in-house IT expertise.

Tasks such as data archiving are handled automatically.

Jack Shea, chief executive officer of Solutions by Computer, said, "In today's economy, where capital funds for long-term investments may be limited, our Enfinity SaaS model offers rental businesses a way to gain rapid competitive advantages at an extremely attractive price point. We are receiving interest from pure-play rental companies as well as operations where rental is a secondary revenue stream."

Mr Shea said that many people are already using SaaS systems without being aware of it, with examples including Facebook and Google's Gmail. "With Enfinity SaaS, the on-screen software at the rental counter and the database both reside at Solutions", said Mr Shea, "but it is as seamless as if the server were in the same room".
