7 Colorado SaaS Companies Shaking Up Their Industries

Software as a Service (SaaS) is an on-demand delivery model in which a software application and its corresponding data are centrally stored in the cloud. SaaS product sales have seen massive growth in recent years and are expected to exceed $20 billion by 2015.  The SaaS model continues to spur the formation of innovative companies, and our own Rocky Mountain Region has been right in the thick of it.  We thought it would be useful to highlight a handful of local businesses that are making waves with their respective SaaS technologies.  Though spread across a diverse group of industries, these companies are unified by creativity and resourcefulness.  Without further ado, here are 7 noteworthy SaaS platforms based right here in Colorado.
