The majority of Software as a Service (SaaS) apps rely on personalized consumer accounts individuals create when first accessing the platform. Essentially, this exchange allows the business operating the SaaS application to generate a license for the user, which in turn grants them access to the app. Because of the nature of this process, it’s imperative that proper legal steps are taken to ensure that the exchange is secure for both the company and consumer. One of the best ways to successfully do this is to implement the clickwrap method.
Rarely do I get excited about building out a new integration. It’s not that I’m not up to the challenge, (because let’s be honest what self-respecting developer doesn’t get amped at building out a new feature!?), but the idea of having to dig through outdated documentation for an overly complex API that then requires three methods of authentication just to get in, well that just doesn’t sound like a fun afternoon.
