Grove is offered as Software as a Service. Software as a service (or SaaS) is a way of delivering applications over the Internet—as a service. Instead of installing and maintaining software, you simply access it via the Internet, freeing yourself from complex software and hardware management.
Historically, companies were required to buy, build, and maintain their IT infrastructures despite exponential costs. SaaS gives companies an alternative. Now, you can plug in and subscribe to services built on shared infrastructure via the Internet..
The popularity of SaaS is steadily increasing because it simplifies deployment and reduces customer acquisition costs. With SaaS, developers can support many customers with a single version of a product. This approach allows customers to scale as fast and as much as needed without replacing costly infrastructure or adding IT staff.
Grove’s basic license includes the costs of hosting, the set up and customization of the platform, on-going systems and database administration and access to quarterly updates. The license also includes Grove’s Content Monitoring Service for the first 12 months of the license at no additional cost.
