People are building too much software. I see how lots of SaaS teams focus on building their software product, more features, refactoring and building infrastructure, while often essential matters such as offering a good first user experience (‘onboarding’) is often left the chance. The second ‘S’ in ‘SaaS’ stands for ‘Service’. This is exactly where the difference is made. It is high time for SaaS companies to understand that first of all they have to develop a service, and only then, in second place, software.
