Forrester estimates that 80% of on-premise spending goes toward maintenance, where only 20% is used for new projects and initiatives. That means that the cost of maintaining an on-premise solution commands a significant amount of budget that could be spent on your marketing and optimization services.
To help you see the cost difference we’re talking about, BigCommerce created a total cost of ownership calculator. Plug in a merchant’s numbers to see the difference for yourself.

Why Choose BigCommerce?
Total Cost of Ownership
Research shows SaaS platforms can cost up to 75% less than on-premise solutions over a four-year period due to headcount and infrastructure costs.
Business App Integration
BigCommerce’s open API makes it easy to integrate with your ERP, CRM, order management system, email, tax tools, shipping and fulfillment systems of choice.
With flexible, modern, responsive themes using popular coding languages, BigCommerce is purpose-built for you to quickly and collaboratively build beautiful, branded e-commerce sites.
Security & Compliance
With a SaaS platform, updates, maintenance and PCI compliance are covered for merchants, so there’s no need to spend resources building out a team to handle these tasks.
Time to Market
SaaS-based stores are up to 50% faster to deploy, saving merchants valuable time before launch. Just design, test and deploy, with no need to select or implement infrastructure.
