What is SaaS? Software as a service (or SaaS; pronounced /sæs/) is what is commonly known as web-based software. When a website's software runs on the web and not on a user's local computer typically that is a SaaS product.

If someone is listening anyway why not be truly heard? Here are 4 strategies that are going to change the way you communicate. With these tools, you’ll be sure to have the ear of everyone you need to listen to you. Theses are the seemingly natural manners of communication that leaders use. But even inherently knowledge can trained.
