How to find technology companies with a SaaS (software as a service) model

Introduction

SaaS has been a hot topic especially in the last couple of years. Businesses and startups alike are offering new cloud based, subscription software, and this is presenting new opportunities for technology companies. Targeting companies with a SaaS model with the right message helps you build a valuable pipeline.


How do we find technology companies with a SaaS (software as a service) model?

As always, think of Tactic as an automated version of a research analyst. When you ask a research analyst to find technology companies with a SaaS (software as a service) model, you will need to specify the keywords and people they should look for.

For example, if a company has an upsell or churn manager, they are likely managing a subscription model. If a company has a ‘request demo’ or ‘sign up’ button on their homepage, it’s likely a SaaS company.

We can use People Searches and Keyword Searches in Tactic to precisely specify how to find technology companies with a SaaS (software as a service) model.
