It’s the end of the decade and the heavy reliability on cloud-based products and services continues to gather strength day-in-day-out. SAAS, short for Software as a Service- continues to gain more ground because of the ease it affords end-users as it removes the need for users to directly install and host tools on their devices before usage. SAAS agreements, therefore, occupy an important place in the setting of rules that govern the SAAS client-customer relationships.
As a SAAS provider, you should not make the mistake of drafting your SAAS agreement all by yourself. You must be wondering at this point why you shouldn’t have to take advantage of the several SAAS agreement templates online which help businesses cut corners with contracting lawyers for document drafting. Here’s your answer: Your SaaS business isn’t the same with others!
Companies, irrespective of the fact that they are focused on the same niche, are different from each other in terms of day-to-day running, administrative structure, products and services, customer relations, and many more. The Saas agreement templates found online are of course modeled after another SaaS business model, meaning that when you pick the template up in a bid to adapt it to your own SaaS business, you’d most often miss out on your company’s uniqueness.
It might appear that you’ve saved yourself some bucks when you use a SaaS Agreement template downloaded online, but that’s for the short-term. Sooner or later, you’d realize how a single misstep inadvertently, sets you and your business up for litigation, accidentally give away your IP rights, and lots more, costing you time, money and reputation.
With all the above in mind, you should now realize the need to have an attorney help you draft a SAAS agreement. Reach out to us for affordable legal drafting services. We’d be expecting your call.
