Short-term SaaS subscriptions allow organizations to purchase
licensing permissions on a quarterly, monthly, or otherwise
limited-duration basis. Short-term contracts help eliminate the danger
of lock in, instead allowing users to reevaluate and possibly replace
underperforming service providers. Additionally, the risk of customer
churn forces vendors to continually improve their products. At the same
time, vendors can often charge more for their services overall than they
would under an annual contract.
