Cloud-Based Vendor Management Solutions (SaaS)
“Elastic” Cloud Computing
In today’s business world, we not only have to do it better, but we need to do it for less, in a different way and on short notice. Add to this the ever-changing technology landscape, and you realize that businesses needs a new, more elastic model.
Solutions as a Service
ICG’s SaaS are based on an “elastic” cloud computing delivery model that changes the game!
One of the most talked about trends in the technology world today is Software-as-a-Service, or SaaS. ICG’s SaaS model takes this trend to a whole new level by offering both the software and fully integrated business solutions delivered together as a cloud based service we call Solutions as a Service. ICG’s SaaS is delivered as a single tenant service. ICG is able to deliver a hosted, cloud based solution designed just for your company, to meet the needs of your unique business process without the need for you to adapt your process to the application. Whether it is Vendor Portals, Dynamic Discounting, AP Automation, Vendor Onboarding, Vendor Management, Business Process Management, Workflow, or many other application areas, ICG’s SaaS model can be designed to fit your needs. Just as in a traditional SaaS model, ICG’s version is based on a “pay for what you use” system – for the entire solution, not just the software! ICG's cloud based solution pricing is fixed so there are no unexpected or variable costs. That is because there are no limitations or fees based on number of users (internal or external) or number of transactions. You know your costs up front, no surprises! Whether it is a single focused solution like a Vendor Portal or a comprehensive procure-to-pay solution, ICG’s “customizable” SaaS model can meet you needs.
