This week we’re joined by Jeroen Corthout, founder of Salesflare, a sales automation CRM. Jeroen is a SaaS founder, which is “a mystery category of business,” as Dave puts it. SaaS is an acronym for the phrase “software as a service.” The SaaS model came about as a response to the complicated way software was previously deployed in business. As Jeroen says, “when your company wanted a CRM, it was a huge undertaking...very quickly the software would become outdated...it was just a horrible experience.” Listen in as Jeroen shares his insight and Saas knowledge and how the Saas model can impact a business.
