Companies are using platform as a service to save on costs while improving the customer experience.

What Is Platform as a Service?

If your company has invested in a technology upgrade of any kind in recent years, you’ve been tasked with weighing the advantages of opting to subscribe to cloud-based solutions or not. Platform as a service is a choice that comes with the cost savings, flexibility, and scalability of any cloud technology while improving the ability to customize and offer highly personalized customer experiences.

Customer experience is the trending driver of many business goals. Particularly since the pandemic, customers have wanted more than good service, high quality, or a reasonable price. The consumer wants to be known by the brands it patronizes, with interactions marked by personalized recommendations and settings.

Historically, achieving these kinds of technological leaps has only been possible for the largest and wealthiest corporations. But with platform as a service (PaaS), companies of any size can subscribe to cloud services that equip them for exceptional customer experiences.

Platform as a service is a cloud-based solution that allows your company to access your business’s infrastructure, offering customization and easy modification to meet your needs. PaaS, like other cloud technology, is billed on a subscription model, allowing companies to only pay for the number of users they need. In addition, there is flexibility to spin up more users as needed and make changes to the service as the business changes and grows.

Benefits of PaaS: PaaS has several advantages over an in-house infrastructure option. The subscription invoicing model allows companies to categorize the technology as an operating expense rather than a capital investment. It can also free up your in-house IT team for other projects because the managed services provider handles the management and maintenance of the infrastructure.

But perhaps the most significant advantage of platform as a service is its easy customization options. With open-access technology and application programming interfaces (APIs), PaaS can be tailored to your exact business needs.

Choosing a PaaS Provider: One of the more critical decisions in this process is the third-party provider that will supply your PaaS solution. You will want to identify the right match by evaluating three critical areas:

  • Integration: How easy is it for the solution to streamline your business processes by integrating with your mission-critical applications and infrastructure?
  • Payment Options: Will the solution support the modern payment conveniences that your customers equate with an exceptional experience with your brand?
  • Technology: Does the solution offer the right features and tools to create a significant jump forward in your business operations?

Your infrastructure directly and dramatically affects your company’s ability to thrive, so choosing the right solution and provider can be a daunting task. Safari Solutions is your guide to selecting a platform as a service solution that seamlessly fits your IT environment. Contact us to get started.


Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

A global sports magazine
I travel to sporting events, especially golf tournaments, often. Critical to my daily operation is stable and quick connectivity as I'm constantly transmitting large volumes of images. I know that when I'm working with the Safari Team I've got nothing to worry about. Their systems always work and the set-up and connection are simple. I would highly recommend Safari Events to any vendor in need of voice and data services
Fortune 500 Company
This event provides a unique challenge to us with the venue moving to a new location each year. I know that when I show up at the trailer that things are going to be ready. I really appreciate that you purchased additional equipment for your inventory as part of my backup plans and risk mitigations. The Safari Team is very professional, responsive, and committed to quality for flawless delivery of the event. Thank you!
An international sports broadcast network
I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
