[The Art of Customization] 10 Steps to Mastering Your SaaS Experience for Optimal Results

The time of Generic, ‘one-size-fits-all’ SaaS solutions is as outdated as using a typewriter for your quarterly reports. 

Yes, that’s right. We live in a world where “custom” is the new “standard.” 

Your business deserves an experience as unique as your startup’s artisanal, locally-sourced, gluten-free staff lunches.

And here’s the Zinger : SaaS companies offering customization options see a 10% increase in average revenue per user. So, let’s dive headfirst into mastering the Art of SaaS customization. 

Ready to stand out from the crowd? With a little finesse, you can transform your software experience from ‘one-size-fits-all’ monotony to ‘tailored-to-perfection’ brilliance.

1. Establish Your Goals :

Goals are like North Stars for your SaaS platform. 

Without them, you’re merely sailing in a sea of feature-overloads. Set your objectives before choosing Customizable features. 

Your business goals should always be at the helm of your customization journey.

2. Understand Your Users :

Step into your users’ shoes (or your own, if you fancy a bit of roleplay). User experience should be the yardstick to measure the efficacy of your SaaS customization. 

Remember, Customization is about users, not Features.

3. Foster Scalability :

Let’s face it. Your business is not going to stay the same size forever (unless you fancy stagnation). Choose SaaS features that are as adaptable as a chameleon in a rainbow.

4. Embrace Integration :

Is your SaaS platform behaving like a sulky teenager, refusing to mingle with other software? It’s high time to push for better integrations. The more, the merrier, after all.

5. Prioritize Security :

Playing fast and loose with security in a world riddled with cyber threats? How very 2020 of you! Security should be a top-notch priority during Customization.

6. Opt for Automated Upgrades :

Let’s be honest, upgrades can be a pain. Luckily, the right SaaS platform offers seamless automatic upgrades, keeping you ahead of the curve without the drama of manual updates.

7. Ensure Reliable Support :

Because you don’t want to be stranded alone in the middle of ‘SaaS Ocean’ when a glitch shows up, right? Opt for platforms that offer robust customer support.

8. Encourage Feedback Loop :

A feedback loop is your secret weapon for continuous improvement. Embrace it, encourage it and use it to hone your SaaS experience.

9. Champion User Training :

Don’t just throw your staff into the deep end of the SaaS pool without a life jacket. User training is key to ensure smooth sailing.

10. Experiment, Iterate, Repeat :

The Golden rule of Customization? There are no rules! 

Experiment, Iterate and Repeat. Innovation is the name of the game.

If you’ve made it this far, consider yourself a seasoned sailor in the stormy seas of SaaS customization. Fancy a little insider secret? Odoo could be your secret weapon to a delightful, efficient and streamlined business process. 

In the immortal words of Albert Einstein, “Once you stop learning, you start dying.”
