SaaS Distribution

SaaS distribution encompasses the processes and tools used to distribute cloud-based software to end users. There two main types of SaaS distribution: direct and indirect. In a direct SaaS distribution model, a software vendor sells products directly to customers, through its website for example. In an indirect SaaS distribution model, a software vendor distributes its products through third-party resellers who then sell them to customers.

Software vendors often utilize both direct and indirect SaaS distribution strategies.
