Medisoft Telemedicine adopts Software as a Service delivery model

Thaltej, Ahmedabad 01 February 2008Medisoft Telemedicine Pvt. Ltd. has adopted Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model for its innovative web-based telemedicine product. SaaS is a software application delivery model where a software vendor develops a web-native software application and hosts and operates - either independently or through a third-party - the application for use by its customers over the Internet, according to the definition by Wikipedia. Customers do not pay for owning the software itself but rather for using it.


Software as a Service, also known as software on demand, is an innovative model which revolutionizes the delivery of software products and its usage. Conventionally, software products were bought by the customers and were installed on their desktops or in their enterprise. This model has some inherent drawbacks for both the user as well as the product companies.

Following are the benefits of SaaS model:

  • There's no software to manage, fix, upgrade, etc.
  • If the vendor doesn't meet your needs, there usually is no long-term commitment and it's easy to switch.
  • Better licensing and cost control.
  • Assurance of the most recent version of application is in use.
