Traverston specializes in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions. We have designed and developed subscription-based solutions for the healthcare and education sectors.
SaaS is advantageous when your application aims to support many customers. In the past, most enterprise systems were hosted on-premise per customer, which required maintenance of many instances of the application. However, now we can deploy a single instance of the application, hosted in the cloud, and have that instance serve many customers. This allows us to push frequent updates and always have everyone using an up-to-date version of the application.
Your SaaS, Built Fast
Our existing SaaS structures and code blocks allow us to get off to a fast start when developing a new project.
To this end, we have created a foundational boilerplate for multi-tenant web applications, which can be used as a great starting point for your applications.
Our boilerplate already includes these features:
- Users and Permissions
- User accounts, authentication and role-based authorization.
- Tenant context and administrative management. Each of your customers has their own walled-off application scope and administrative functions.
- Team and Client Management
- Your customers can invite their team members and clients to use your SaaS with them.
- Subscription Management
- Customizable plans and subscriptions, so you can tailor your offering to your customers.
- Mobile Responsive
- Looks great on any device, from desktop to mobile phone.
- … and Much More
Our foundational boilerplate includes all you need to get rolling. We can quickly start to build your features on top of this foundation.
As part of the discovery phase of your project, we determine the nature of your user base, and which of these models should be employed for your application:
Each customer has their own instance of the application. Customer instances can be hosted in the cloud, or on-premise within the customer’s own infrastructure.
This model provides complete resource segregation for the customer, but maintenance can be more difficult since there are likely multiple instances of the application for the developer to maintain. Often this means customers do not receive system updates as frequently, and may not be on the most current version at any given time.
Examples of single-tenant applications include a Hospital Information System (HIS) installed within the walls of a hospital, or an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system installed on-premise in a physician’s office.
B2C Multi-Tenant Model
All customers share a single instance of the application, hosted in the cloud. Each customer is an individual user, and the application contains a single, potentially large, customer base. These applications usually serve a business to consumer (B2C) market.
Examples of B2C multi-tenant applications include Facebook, Twitter and Netflix.
B2B Multi-Tenant Model
All customers still share a single instance of the application, but each customer has their own “walled” space within the application. These applications usually serve a business to business (B2B) market. Typically, the customer is an organization, and each individual user signs in under the context of their customer organization. This allows many organizations to use the application with their own segregated accounts and data. The application typically includes administrative and subscription management for each organization.
Examples of B2B multi-tenant applications include Salesforce, Slack and Google Workspace.
