Solutions-as-a-Service (SaaS), is the shift from traditional capital expenditures for equipment where the onus to maintain and operate to peak performance is solely on the end user to a shared responsibility format.

In the SaaS format the ownership of the system does not change hands but instead the partners engage in a relationship that considers the results of said system to be a billable service. Therefor the outcome of the systems operations becomes a shared responsibility reflecting the best interests of both parties.

Examples of SaaS could be Clean In Place (CIP) on a pay per circuit or vessel cleaned format, or Waste Water/BOD Treatment on a pay per litre treated to within spec prior to discharging back to the municipal system format.

Depending on your companies culture the core benefit could vary but the shift from a conventional capex format transaction to a SaaS format is significant for cash flow considerations and can assist business plan for growth more effectively especially for processors who are affected by seasonal production fluctuations.
