The benefits of using your SaaS product’s desktop app
Digital Pigeon18 January 2023
There's one thing a lot of SaaS products miss from their arsenal: desktop apps. While it may not be a big deal when you first use a SaaS product, it soon becomes an essential piece of infrastructure in your workflow. We believe it pays to have the best of both worlds – desktop and web-based versions, to give our users the flexibility to operate within the best environment for their specific needs.
Some of the benefits of having a desktop app include:
A desktop app helps save time
When you're using a desktop app, your data is available at all times (including when you’re offline). You don't have to click through multiple tabs or log out of one account and log into another. This allows you to get more done in less time because you can pull up information quickly and easily.
Desktop apps are widely acknowledged as being more powerful and therefore able to run faster than web-based apps. This added speed is going to set you in good stead to get things done faster!
Convenience over a web browser
Instead of having everything spread out on various tabs in your web browser, you can just go straight to your app and then back to your other stuff. You don't have to worry about whether or not each tab has logged you out or if they are still running while you're doing something else because they aren't open at all!
Keeping you secure
SaaS products are known for their ease of use and user-friendly interface, but when you're running them via a web browser you’re reliant on that product’s security settings. With a locally downloaded app running in your own environment, you can have a lot more confidence that things are secure.
Desktop apps are the way to go. They're convenient, they're easy on your storage space, they keep you organised and most importantly - they make it easier for you to do what you do best: get stuff done.
