Hi, I’m Sara. I’m a software engineer by trade, and half of FromThePage, a SAAS (and open source project) for collaborative transcription of handwritten historical documents.
We have a consulting business in the same market, where most of our income comes from. FromThePage is in active use by 7 customers (2 SAAS, 5 on prem) on projects ranging from The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick to the Aztec Codex Aubin.
The consulting business has been successful enough for me to quit my day job to split my time between delivering consulting engagements and building up the SAAS business. We currently have 2 paying SAAS customers and deployment and support contracts with 3 others.
Can we get out of the on-prem deployment business?

I look forward to getting to know people here and sharing ideas.
