Frankfurt Partners Publish its Newest SaaS Valuation and Metric Research Report

Business Consulting firm Frankfurt Partners (www.frankfurtpartners.com) released the third edition of its biannual Software as a Service (SaaS) Valuation and Metric Report. SaaS remains a relatively new business model but it has a great potential for growth. As of 2010, it is estimated to have reached less than 20% of its potential market.

The largest proportion of SaaS customers so far are SMEs and medium-sized companies with relatively little break-through into the enterprise market. However, the level of adoption by enterprises is starting to increase rabidly. By the end of 2010, 80% of U.S. organizations will use at least one SaaS-delivered application for business use.

“The M&A Activities have picked up in the last 12 month as a array of companies are seeking to capitalize on the rising demand for SaaS solutions and trying to position themselves as a strategic player in the SaaS market”, says Rene Meister. “Given the attractive characteristics of SaaS companies from a financial perspective (i.e. strong growth, revenue visibility), it is not surprising that M&A activity for SaaS vendors has been strong.”

This report includes extensive benchmarking data about the SaaS Market. It is an invaluable resource for metrics and benchmarks for running a business based on the SaaS business model.

Reports key findings:
•Although many more companies are entering the SaaS market, most of these are providing SaaS as an extension to their existing product line.
•With a total asset value of $2,460 million stated in its end 2009 balance sheet, Salesforce is more than three times the size of its nearest rival.
•SaaS providers require around 50-70% more capital than traditional software companies before they achieve a positive cash flow.
•Pure play SaaS providers are the most valuable out of 23 categories of software companies.
•Mergers and acquisition valuations have generally fallen from an average of 6.2 times revenue in 2007 to 5.3 times in 2010. Overall Deal sizes have been fallen too.
•Successful pure play SaaS providers such as Netsuite and Salesforce.com are valued much higher then companies that still have traditional business models.

TLA Technologies, a Microsoft Certified Partner, announced the availability of award-winning Microsoft Dynamics Customer Relationship Management (CRM) 4.0 as a hosted solution for their small business customers (less than 25 computer users). The hosted solution gives small businesses an alternative to incurring the costs and technology overhead of hardware, installation, and software maintenance. TLA Technologies now provides hosted Dynamics CRM as Software as a Service (SaaS) over the Internet to clients through a low cost of entry and a monthly service fee. Small businesses can have CRM technology that was previously just available to large organizations, and at a reasonable price.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers are experiencing a bigger demand because they offer lower costs compared to traditional in-house software vendors.

TLA Technologies is reaching out to customers in this current economic climate to ensure that businesses have the best solutions for Customer Relationship Management in their organizations. This new offering creates a win-win situation for their customers, and their customers’ clients, enabling companies to boost their business, streamline their customer service management operations, and help grow their companies at a conservative cost.

They have been helping their customers since 2002 use technology to achieve Return on Investment (ROI) effectively and efficiently.

With SaaS Microsoft Dynamics CRM, TLA Technologies is responsible for managing the servers, the software, and the backups for their customers. The hosted CRM solution frees customers from purchasing, and maintaining hardware and software. Another financial benefit they offer their customers is the ability to manage costs more efficiently by adding users to Dynamics CRM on an as-needed basis. Lassa and Harrison use Dynamics CRM themselves, saying the software is easy to use and works seamlessly with Microsoft Office products. They use their Dynamics CRM in-house expertise to support client requests.

Microsoft’s CRM software excels at providing small businesses sales, marketing, and customer service information to deliver more agility and profitability. It is the tool of choice for improved customer service, insightful marketing communication, and streamlined sales processes. Companies can customize Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0, by choosing just the functionality they need.
