When you implement a Quality Management software solution, you naturally want to ensure the best possible value from your investment. It’s important that you look beyond the upfront price of a solution and consider all the factors that will require ongoing commitments of money and resources over time: the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
When you're evaluating software choices, one of your first considerations is whether to implement a traditional on-premises solution or use software hosted in the cloud—Software as a Service (SaaS). The initial price tag for SaaS may be attractive, but does that savings hold up over time?
The short answer in most cases is yes. Take a look at a cost comparison:

Note that cost alone shouldn’t be your only consideration when choosing between an on-premises or cloud-based solution. Be sure to consult with your Account Manager to determine which solution best fits your organization’s specific requirements.
A Quality Management solution is an investment that you’ll want to use for a long time, so be sure you’re considering the ongoing costs of supporting that solution – as well as the potential value you’ll get back.
