Satyam also announced that it is partnering NASSCOM and Federation of Andhra Pradesh Small Industries’ Association (FAPSIA) in the initiative to promote IT adoption among SMEs in Hyderabad.

SaaS brings several advantages to SMEs, such as, low upfront investment, predictable maintenance costs, lower customization, leaner IS staff and scalable service level/ usage, Satyam said in a statement.

Subu D, director and senior vice president, Satyam Manufacturing and Automotive Business, said: “This model, SaaS, is an up coming development abroad, where companies pay for IT systems based on usage, just like they pay for utility services like electricity and telecom. Satyam views this model as a perfect fit for the needs of SMEs in India.”

“Satyam has plans to encourage this model among SMEs, allowing an affordable and predictable monthly payment scheme, with low initial investment which makes it simple and hassle free to use,” he added.

Satyam will provide its Web based Enterprise Application Platform (EAP), for use by SMEs to run business operations like sales, purchase, production, shipment, finance and accounts.
