Do you need a website for your business but want to do it without the hassle of lengthy processes and technology decisions like CMS and hosting? Do you want someone else to do it for you, like a service you can subscribe to?
Website as a Service (WaaS) is a way of managing a website, subscribing to it as a service so that technical updates are managed by someone else and as part of a package.
The Website as a Service concept is especially attractive for communication teams that;
WaaS is often a standardized solution, which is quick to start and easy to purchase with low cost of production and fast time to market. It is often possible to move your existing website, including content and design, to a WaaS platform very quickly, giving you access to all the benefits immediately.
A WaaS platform is based on generic requirements that all websites and businesses need, for example:
Some providers also offer the ability to implement a custom design, not just by adding your logo.
By subscribing to the service, you decide the level of development of your site based on the amount you pay each month. If you've moved an existing site to a WaaS platform, you may want to make bigger changes early on when you see the possibilities the platform offers. After a while, you may be satisfied with fewer modifications, focusing on keeping the website up to date. There's always a basic monthly fee you pay, to which you add a development and support agreement.
One of the main reasons for choosing WaaS is that the provider will ensure that the website is up to date with ever-changing technology such as browser updates, Google search updates, and changes in technology standards (demise of Java, rise of of HTML5, requirement for website encrypted using SSL, etc.).
Hosting is also included in the service, so you don't have to worry about traffic numbers, malicious attacks, and geographic distribution.
Another aspect that the provider must take care of is to make sure that the website is legally compliant with MAR and GDPR. WaaS offers the ability to classify regulatory press releases, provides an archive for general meetings, handles cookie policies and, if you use forms, ensures they are GDPR compliant.
With WaaS, you spend less of your budget on technology, so you can use your budget for content and communication. Many WaaS solutions provide the option of page-by-page layout, so that extra effort can be put into important pages, making them work really well for your stakeholders.
When using a WaaS solution, the initial setup of the website should be quick thanks to standardized solutions. After that, you can decide how much time you want to spend caring for yourself or have your provider do it.
Platform updates requested by other companies using the solution are often included in your solution, which means you can decide to implement them at a lower cost than if you request them yourself. Therefore, more solutions will be available to you.
WaaS is a good option for any company with limited resources that wants to have a well-functioning website without having to understand all the technical jargon. It is less relevant if your company has strong demands on specific providers for, for example, hosting.
