Because of this, my very firm recommendation for anybody who is making their first attempt at building a SaaS is to reign in your initial build goals and focus on making a solid, compelling tool. Don't attempt to make a platform - the bigger and more complicated the project, the more likely it is to fail, and your first few projects will very likely fail, anyhow.
The more times you've done something, the better you are at it. Building and running a SaaS Business is just like everything else: a career with a specific set of skills that you have to master.
There are thousands of different SaaS systems on the market, and we've taken the time to prepare a list that covers all of them. You ready?
A lot of people and companies who want to get involved in SaaS development are operating under a faulty premise: that SaaS is this sort of magical passive income source and that they can just build the product and start making money.
There are a lot of elements involved in the ideation, validation, estimation, build, launch, and growth of a SaaS system. The estimating step is critical as it helps you understand if this project is "worth it," how to proceed with funding, and what features should and should not be added to the Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
We are proud to announce the launch of our latest SaaS system, MedRev! This project has been in production now since March and is finally at an MVSP (Minimum Viable Sellable Product) state and is going to market. The sales team for this company starts it's work tomorrow and we are so happy to have helped them get off the ground.
