Software as a Service
Trumba Connect is Software as a Service (SaaS).
This means that, instead of purchasing a software license and installing the software on your own servers,
you subscribe to the Trumba Connect solution that we host on our servers, and you access the solution over the Internet.
As the following table demonstrates, you benefit from a web-hosted subscription model by saving time and money,
and making better use of your resources.
