The Cost of SaaS Software is High, But Here's How to Get Affordable Business Software for Your Small

When small businesses are looking for software, they may find that the cost of SaaS software is too high. However, every small business needs the basic tools for running their day to day tasks like:

  • Human Resource Management - tools to help you keep track of your employee records, files, leave and payroll
  • Goal setting and KPI - tools to help you with a business wide goal setting process of creating and tracking goals
  • Project Management - tools to allow your team to collaborate on projects, keep track of project progress and milestones
  • Accounting Software - tools to help your business keep track of the finances, measure and record inflows and outflows of revenue
  • CRM - a tool to help you keep track of your clients and sales leads in one place

The cost problem

Currently, a small business must buy four different software to be able to accomplish all the above tasks. This can get costly for a small business just starting out.

HR Software R28 per user per month
Project Management Software $24 per user per month
Accounting Software R119 per month
Sales and CRM Euro25 per user per month
Goal Setting OKR Software $15 per user per month


Total - approximately ZAR 1146 which is the equivalent of $78 per user. Very important to note that these prices are "per user per month", which means you need to multiply them by the number of users you have in your company.

With these prices, it is no surprise that small business revert back to spread-sheet management and keeping records in inboxes and scattered dropbox accounts and google drive folders.
