Saas Digital is a software development shop in Tai Tokerau, Northland, Aotearoa, New Zealand. Saas Digital's co-founders have more than 50 years of combined experience in the tech sector. We specialise in the development of SaaS applications and web integration - joining an organisation's existing systems together into one tight, workable solution that increases efficiency and allows the achievement of objectives.
To produce innovative, cost effective, robust and extensible software solutions that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations.
We build, robust, reliable and elegant software using recognised architectural and design patterns and first class development and life cycle management tools. We test each solution (hard!) to ensure that it meets your business needs.
We use established (not bleeding edge) open source technologies. These allow us to:
Our long term vision is to be involved in the development of a tech sector in Northland. We're committed to training tertiary tech graduates in an apprenticeship model in a commercial, best practice software development shop. We want to pass on the good practice we've learnt - usually the hard way - and at the same time incorporate the innovation and vision of the next generation of developers.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a natural fit for businesses who want to control and reduce the costs spent on IT responsibilities and costs. SaaS removes the dependency on in-house servers and software license costs by allowing companies to adjust their SaaS subscription on a monthly basis, scaling consumption requirements up and down based on demand. Some examples of SaaS applicatons you would have heard of include include Xero, Vend, PushPay and SalesForce.
Our applications are designed to run in the cloud on highly secure and available platforms.
We design and build mobile SaaS applications that increase mobility for users with your services on the go and that run on multiple platforms
In multi tenanted applications, multiple customers share the same application, running on the same operating system, on the same hardware, with their own database. Each tenant is logically separated but enjoys the benefits of economies of scale to reduce operational costs.
These are the steps we use to guide you through the process of creating the solution that your business needs. We won't claim to be able to create an exact plan for a large integration project from its inception - requirements change and new opportunities are discovered - but our process allows us to incorporate change to deliver the best possible solution.
We work closely with you to understand your objectives, to clearly define the scope of the business problem or opportunity, and to identify candidate solutions. The resulting problem statement is clear and precise and can be used as a point of reference to ensure that your new solution fully meets the needs of your business or organisation.
We develop and document a statement of the functional, security and other requirements – to the level of detail necessary for your specific needs.
We design and document the software solution, including its technical and security architecture, workflows, wireframes, and any legacy system or other external interfaces.
Writing code! This is often done incrementally – using continuous integration and deployment processes to deliver quality checked new build iterations to our testing environment.
We bring all the pieces together into a dedicated UAT environment for you to test the new solution – or new feature release. We support you throughout this process ensuring that any defects are registered, monitored and promptly resolved.
We deliver your new solution or feature release into its live (production) environment and conduct thorough production verification tests before making it available to its end users. We are then with you to support your new solution – to agreed service levels – via our support channel. Because we value relationships, we like to think of this as not the end, but the beginning of an ongoing journey where we are available to support you with your future technology and solution needs.
We've chosen a technology stack that comprises a set of modern, open source development tools including .NET Core, Angular and Docker. These tools allow us to create stable, extensible, testible, future-proofed solutions that play well with your existing systems and that are host agnostic.
Angular | HTML5 | CSS 3 | SASS
Windows | Linux
.NET Core | EF | Aurora | MySQL
Amazon Web Services
We're constantly evaluating new technologies but we've learnt that having a stable technology stack allows us to use a framework for common functionality like authentication, security, logging and auditing. That means we've got more time to focus on the specific objectives of your business knowing that we're building on top of a secure and robust base.
Our founders have more than 50 years of combined experience in the tech sector.
