Implementation of a cloud application also costs money. This concerns costs for configuration and any links to other systems. But these implementation costs amount to just a fraction of the investment that would be needed for an on-site solution. After all, you do not need to invest in hardware, licences and a management organisation. This means no or hardly any discussions about payback periods.
What do you actually have to pay? A fixed amount per month. Do you want to trial the application, for instance for a couple of months? No problem. If you’re satisfied, you can take out a contract with a minimum term of a year. After that, you can cancel at any time.
