A SaaS professional discussing her new white label HR Tech solutions.

What is White Label Software? 

In the world of SaaS, white labeling is when one SaaS vendor partners with a white label developer to brand their solution and present it as their own. It’s an efficient way for SaaS companies to immediately add and profit from new features and functionalities without worrying about development, support, and upkeep.

White labeling is a practice many SaaS companies are taking advantage of to expand their offerings, add additional revenue streams, and gain a competitive edge. There are various solutions you can add to enhance your product, and if you know you’d like to gain additional functions but are unsure what new features to add, it could be overwhelming.

This post is designed to highlight five types of white label SaaS functions that will enhance most SaaS products. 

The Advantages of White Labeling SaaS Solutions 

We’ve established that the benefits of adding new solutions are expanding your functionality (which today SaaS customers expect from their vendors), adding new revenue streams, and gaining a competitive edge. However, white labeling has additional advantages, which allow you to go to market fast and eschew expensive development costs.

No Expertise Needed

Creating a software product with excellent customer experience takes developer and designer skills. In contrast, white-labeled products require only a bit of learning on how to use them. Most developers provide customer support and already have materials to help you.

Fewer Entry Barriers

Developing a solution from scratch takes resources, money, and time. White labeling eliminates the need to spend money and time on research and development, testing, and engineering. The only expenses are licensing and implementation. 

An in-house solution might seem like the way to go when building a company or organization. Still, you may quickly find that the effort can derail internal business processes and exceed budgets. It’s important to factor in time and cost—can you afford to allocate a good amount of both? If not, go with white labeling. 

Expand Your Product Offerings

By investing in white-labeling, companies can increase the scope of their offerings, making them more attractive to new and existing customers. Adopting a white-label solution will accelerate responsiveness to a customer and meet their demands. Rather than spend all that time building their solution, they can use that time to deploy a white-label solution, acquire customers, and continue to delight them with their own branded, working platform. 

Become More Adaptable...and Competitive

The Global Software Outsourcing Trends and Rates Guide says, “Software development outsourcing ultimately became a required consideration or a strategic necessity to help businesses to respond to sudden business shocks effectively and adapt for long-term resiliency.”

As we just learned through all the chaos of the pandemic, work closures, and shifts in workplace trends, highly adaptable organizations are the ones that stay in business. If your organization needs to pivot to address new customers' needs or challenges quickly, white labeling can ensure you can meet these needs promptly and efficiently.
