"No-Nonsense Training Platform"

What do you like best?

Since IHG's integration of Saba Cloud into their training program, the training has been taken to the next level. While corporate's content has improved dramatically. The platform Saba Cloud provides makes executing, tracking and reporting staff training easier than ever. The interface is very clean. Also a big benefit is that training material is provided several ways (PDF, Adobe Flash, etc) and Saba Cloud handles it well.

What do you dislike?

The sister mobile application is not on par to their website. Now days, it's expected that their is fluid, full-functioning performance across all mediums. I'd stick to using the desktop version of the offering.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For corporate LMS (Learning Management System), Saba Cloud is highly recommended. It's intuitive design ensures navigation is common sense, that the data is where you'd expect it. This product can scales to your training needs perfectly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As mentioned, the Saba Cloud platform raises the bar on making sure staff training is completed. It really eased the way of cataloging and finding training material when there is a large list of training material.

"Easy Implementation"

What do you like best?

So far we are in the implementation phase - it has gone exceedingly well. The support staff is very knowledgeable and responsive.

What do you dislike?

The interface needs some work - it "works" but there are small things like pop-up boxes that don't really need to be there. For example, when changing settings on notifications it will tell me "success" but then I need to click the box to close it out. This may seem trite but when setting up hundreds of notifications the extra clicks make a difference.

Recommendations to others considering the product

So far the features far exceed what we need. As well, the road-map that Saba has for the near future is exciting - I look forward to continuing to work with a company that is constantly developing their services.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While we haven't realized any benefits to date we are moving from a pen and paper - track everything through Excel system. I don't think I need to say anymore other than we have 2000+ employees so you can imagine the cost-benefit Saba Cloud will offer once we finish implementation and go-live.

What Corporate LMS solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Learning Made Easy! "

What do you like best?

We have been live with Saba for a little over 5 months now. The implementation team was wonderful! Our functional consultant was extremely resourceful and made sure that we had an understanding of the system. We are still working on building our training catalogs, but our colleagues seem to love the look and feel of Saba.

What do you dislike?

1) While I like the fact that Saba has a mobile application, I wish the design of the app matched the desktop UI. It would be nice if our branding carried over, so our colleagues had the same experience regardless of which device they were using.

2) The limitation on the prescriptive rules. If there is a field available on the learner profile, we should be able to create a prescriptive rule using that field. For instance, "job start date" is a field on the learner profile, however, we could not use that field to have training assigned to colleagues that transfer into positions. We were able to get this training assigned using other logic, but it would be nice to "work smarter not harder."

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saba has given us the opportunity to have one learning platform. Prior to implementing Saba, colleagues were accessing training in Brainshark, Cornerstone, and our company intranet. Now that we have one learning system, we can continue building out our learning catalogs and work on developing our colleagues.

"Great cloud based LMS!"

What do you like best?

I think the self serve analytics are amazing. Previously I would wait for at least hours or maybe even days for an admin to extract and manipulate data from a server based LMS using crystal reports etc. Now I can build, schedule and run my own reports using an intuitive editor and get answers in moments to supply stakeholders.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike, there are always opportunities to improve and as a cloud based system the platform as evolved dramatically in the 4+ years I have been using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have utilized webinar based training delivery extensively for the last 10 years, but until we migrated to the Saba Cloud we were using an LMS and Webinar platform that weren't integrated. this led to significant difficulties and usability issues. The integration between Saba meeting and Saba Cloud has reduced our costs, improved our processes and enhanced the user experience.

"Great system , easy to configure"

What do you like best?

There are several things I like about Saba. First is the ease of configuration - you don't have to be an IT programmer or have specialized systems knowledge to modify the system to meet your needs. Secondly, the flexibility of the product allows it to work FOR us, rather than having to adjust our work processes to force-fit into a rigid system.

What do you dislike?

There sometimes seems to be a bit of a disconnect between the Saba programmers/developers and the client-facing personnel. I've run across a time or two when changes were made that affected functionality, and the consultant I was working with wasn't aware of it in advance - we just stumbled upon it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have greatly streamlined our performance process. We were able to integrate an acquisition with international sites, and successfully executed compensation planning over multiple countries and currencies. Saba offers translation into multiple languages, which allows us to push processes and training throughout the world

"Cloud based solution that helps drive learning"

What do you like best?

Cloud based solution that is automatically updated, requires no on-premise servers and is typically very fast.

What do you dislike?

There are functions that are not included by default. If you miss it, then your stuck without it until the next renewal (at least in our case, as the funding was determined up front). Things like SABA Discovery, different Marketplace Plugins (like LinkedIn Learning), Advanced Reporting and so forth.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a solid set of stories so that the system can be properly configured to meet your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use SABA strictly as a learning platform today, but are looking to expand that to be include the social platform driving learning from a new perspective. Rather than just formal content (register for course -> take course), letting users drive the experience through informal content, mind-share and the like.

"LMS for automotive retail network "

What do you like best?

1. Prescriptive Rules: automatizing the training assignment saves lots of time and secures our model

2. jobs > skills > trainings allows to create tailored training paths

3. embedded tools (Virtual Class and Assessments)

What do you dislike?

1. ergonomy: clicks paths could be much more simplified, for end users but also for admins

2. features delivered but not mature enough (gamification, organization managers...)

3. not always adapted to a retail network, need to implement workarounds

Recommendations to others considering the product

project phase to configure and implement is tought, specially if your organization is not the theoretical Saba model (1 big organization with departments / retail network), and if you need to adapt the privileges.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are centralizing training monitoring from multiple countries, languages, and using embedded tools to simplify our processes.

"Training Done Right"

What do you like best?

By far I appreciate most the fact that Saba listens to thier customers and continues to enhance thier offerings based on needs. The platform itself for learning is so user friendly and easy to navigate on both the user and the Admin side.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see more areas where the option to alphabetize or prioritize listings was available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The team was very helpful with walking us through the processes and adjusting as our needs grew over the course of the setup and launch.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saba Cloud is helping us reach our customers faster and with stronger support. We have learned how much more responsive an audience is to a dynamic and easy to use platform.

"Saba makes it easy to track your trainings for you and your employees"

What do you like best?

Saba cloud holds a lot of trainings and can keep track of what learnings have been required and which ones are optional, which lets us see how our groups are completing them. With the ability to see the progress you can always come back to something, which is critical because some of our trainings are long and are never completed without interruptions.

What do you dislike?

At times it can be hard to drop classes once they've been assigned. Our group had to go through IT and HR to finally get a training removed from our dockets in Saba Cloud, so it would be nice to have that feature as an administrator to delete certain trainings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company has a lot of trainings that are required, and then even more are available to further our skills optionally. Saba makes it really simple to organize all of our trainings, by showing due dates, filtering out in-person trainings vs web-based, and just in general is better at organizing our classes. As an admin, I can also track other people's trainings, and send reminders to those I see have not completed certain trainings.

"Saba for Smaller Organizations"

What do you like best?

Saba is very administrator friendly, particularly for small organizations that may not have full or sophisticated learning teams. My organization has between 850 and 900 employees and for the most part, I am able to administer this system entirely independently. I do receive some assistance from assistants doing RDI loads, but administration is easy enough for one person to handle!

What do you dislike?

This system can be overwhelming for people who've never administered an LMS. There are lot of 'layers' to the processes that can be difficult to understand. A good example: There are multiple places to turn on and off notifications, so it can be easy to turn a notification on in one location, but forget another, and then its hard to figure out why your notifications are not firing... However, its not hard to learn and there are a lot of resources to assist you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We administer all learning, including custom e-learning, packaged e-learning, and instructor-led training, through this system. We save a great deal of time on training administration using predictive rules and the automation available in Saba.

"Saba is the Conference Call's Saving Grace"

What do you like best?

What I love most about Saba is that it is extremely user friendly and easy to have multiple people on the call, either who have called in through the phone and are on the go, or those who are in an office setting in a video call setting. There is also a very user-friendly screenshare function that makes it easy for the admin to share their screen if they need to show real-time updates or specifics.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I really dislike is that once you enable to video chat button on the call, it is nearly impossible to turn it off. I had to cover my webcam to stop it from recording till the call was over.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our nonprofit is international, and most of our HQ staff and state leadership work remotely. We also use this product to do trainings that are across the board, and it is an extremely versatile and useful software.

"Saba as education (Learning Management Systems)"

What do you like best?

By using this software, you can take courses online in the subjects you are interested in! Be it learning about Excel or you want to improve your English or if you want to learn a programming Language. It has 1000s of courses online.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything about this. Saba is used extensively by companies.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Companies considering this software for LMS should go for it. Also, for individuals who want to take courses online!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There is a huge business for companies, because if employees improve their skills, they can perform better. So, Saba helps you take courses online in the comfort of your home or at your desk. When I was at Deloitte, my manager assigned me some courses so that I get the skills required to perform my job better. Companies use this software extensively.

It's also mandatory to take some of the courses like Ethics, Integrity or Diversity at workplace. All these courses are mandatory, so, every employee uses Saba to take these courses.

"Social Collaboration Meets Individual Development"

What do you like best?

Social Collaboration Tools are rooted in learning

What do you dislike?

Compensation module in early stages. They are on the right track but needs some development for larger structures

Recommendations to others considering the product

I truly believe you get out of Saba what you put into it. Have a plan and they will help you make it happen. They were great providing best practice advice when we needed it and helping us get buy-in for features along the way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saba addressed our need for a replacement for our learning management system that went beyond just providing courses. We wanted a total experience for our Associates that addressed personal and professional development.

"Growing and learning."

What do you like best?

The scalability of Saba has allowed us to implement different elements as we were ready to grow. Saba's programming team constantly listens to its clients and improves the system based on client feedback.

What do you dislike?

Because of the size of the system, finding answers to questions or issues can be tedious. But, we usually find them or can get timely help from the support desk.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take as much of the free training in the Community. It will help you fully build your stories before beginning implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our training and development programs are more organized. We have been able to expand on certain programs because the reporting and tracking are much less manual than our previous methods. We are still exploring more ways to use Saba to help our associates learn, grow, and succeed.

"Solid integration and competency-friendly"

What do you like best?

Saba is hands down an excellent tool for companies who integrate recruiting, training, development, performance, and learning around competencies. At its core, saba has a very nice platform that is social and interactive, but that is nothing above and beyond other talent management systems - it is the full 260 integration that really is a home run.

What do you dislike?

Navigating the system features is like writing code. it is another language entirely, you need a manual just to navigate to a setting you want to disable or modify. You never understand WHY these functions need to be turned off in order for you to add a custom field or to change a notification, but thankfully there is a job aid to show you how. It is just too much in my opinion.

I also am finding the succession module to be very flat, it does not seem to be as useful as the other modules.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time upfront to ensure ALL of your data is correct - it is very important as you are unable to delete most data from the system once it has been entered.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At our company, we had no way to track training - so Saba was an immediate problem solver/.

Additionally, we had a lot of added benefit by rolling in the performance and learning modules to help us integrate and show a relationship between performance - training - and career development.

"Very customizable, awful support"

What do you like best?

I love how customizable Saba is and how there's always something new to learn. You really can tailor it to your organization.

What do you dislike?

Saba support is awful. Their chat box rarely gets anything resolved in that moment, it moreso serves a way for them to create a ticket for you. Tickets take days, sometimes weeks, to resolve. There is rarely a phone number given so the only way to communicate with whoever is managing your ticket (changes every time) except for within the support portal. The language barrier can make things hard sometimes too. No content library means our users are restricted to content we upload and create. The fact that all training has to come from the Community or a RIDICULOUSLY expensive Saba in-person training isn't great. I find out about features that would've been useful long ago, but communication about what all the system can do needs work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure you have someone on your team that can spend the time fully dedicating to learning Saba. It is not an LMS that drives itself, there needs to be someone behind the wheel.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The analytics have really helped our users keep on track with their classes as well as make managers aware of where their direct reports are in their career path. The ability to upload our own content in any format we choose is also a bonus.

"Saba Cloudy with a Chance of Awesome"

What do you like best?

It's future proof and powerful. The system is able to provide a great experience to our users and admins alike.

What do you dislike?

It's powerful & takes a while to learn. There are so many functionalities that the system can do, that it's difficult to find a simple solution to get something done. It is not intuitive from an admin perspective and requires the admin to know every single step to make something happen rather than just simply going straight to the desired action.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There needs to be a better single site source for admin/user reference. The Community site has many limitations and does not provide the "instruction manual" needed to learn how to use the system effectively.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to provide consistent learning experiences through a single site provider with Saba Cloud. We've realized that we can turn around a last minute training need truly in the last minute thanks to the mobile capabilities that it offers.

"Saba Cloud - Learning and Development"

What do you like best?

Provides a central location to access all required training and certification videos. Easy to track history of completed sessions as well as currently in progress and items still needing attention. Also provides a module to create and track goals.

What do you dislike?

Navigating can be a bit difficult. Not as intuitive as you would like. The process of goal setting and updating progress has a few too many steps. While overall difficult at first, it does become easier the more you use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saba is used as the main portal for development and learning within the organization. It's made tracking and monitoring the goals of anyone reporting to you much less time consuming. Our organization has a lot of required training. Makes it very simple to log in and knock out a video or two during some down time. Overall makes that process more efficient.

"Poor UX and navigability "

What do you like best?

SabaCloud has the right set of basic features to make it a robust and useful Learning software across a corporate enterprise. From a user perspective, its best features are:

- Ability to filter search results

- Ability to upload documents and other types of course information to specific courses

- Ease of signing up to courses and viewing all related information

What do you dislike?

As a frequent user of the software, my two biggest challenges with this software are that:

1. The user interface of SabaCloud makes navigation difficult: for example, opening new tabs with course details is not possible, so to view a course, you must open it on the same page and then navigate back

2. The search function can be temperamental: for example, it is not possible to filter solely by date on the homepage to have a view of upcoming training courses; you must select a discipline or search for key words before you can use the filter function, which unnecessarily limits you to a more narrow set of results

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use SabaCloud as our Learning and Development management portal. It is the company's single source for all virtual and classroom-based training courses globally. Users are able to filter by type of course, location of course, langauge, etc. and are able to view our full suite of offerings. Users are also able to view course details and register online instantly, which then alerts the course instructors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a dedicated person to manage the SC as an administrator.

"Saba Cloud Review"

What do you like best?

We really like that we can easily share the behavioral or competency-driven expectations for all employees, regardless of role, using Saba. For our employees, they can see those expectations and quickly determine what areas they would like to work on or develop.

What do you dislike?

Their customer community site, Community Central, can be difficult to navigate especially when you are looking to connect with others who might have the same question you have.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted to share expectations with employees, both goals and behaviors using a single system. Saba has enabled us to do that and employees have shared with us that they appreciate having the transparency that didn't exist before.

"HR Information Systems Manager"

What do you like best?

Saba is no doubt best in class and continues to improve the solution to cater for the needs of customers. The product has evolved since our initial on-premise solution. I like the holistic solution Saba Cloud offers, and the ability to adapt. As an absolute minimum, it extremely robust in meeting all our basic Corporate LMS requirements. We've also implemented Talent Management subsequently.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. We've come a long way with the Saba product in our organization. The one important factor that Saba needs to continue to do, is to remain on their toes, remain agile and not become complacent. And from a user experience perspective, continue to enhance where relevant.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are in the market, I would certainly give Saba Cloud some serious consideration. The product has evolved a fair bit since our first on-premise implementation, and continues to listen to customers in terms of research, development and further enhancements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping our Contact Centre staff informed and regularly assessed, and other benefits in certain areas of our business.

"Saba People Cloud "

What do you like best?

I like that its cloud hosted, or can be, so that my organization can focus on running the environment and supporting end users and not trouble shooting system issues.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the process for system changes, currently you have to submit a request to the forum, hope people vote for it, and then if enough people vote it might be passed to a Saba engineer and could end up in one of the quarterly releases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have technical people on your side, this is not a simple to implement software it requires thought and vision. Saba will send people who are contractors to help with deployment, they might not understand or see the whole picture of your orginization or what =saba can do. My advice would be to foucus on the whats needed category. Make sure you know how you what to create classes and quizes/tests, maje sure you know how you want to enroll students, and make sure you understand the data backend befire you let them leave. We got bogged down by notifications, and dont even use them anymore.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The need to track and report on users learning and compare that data to sales results.

What do you like best?

I've been using Saba for a couple of years, and I have completed many training courses using it This tool is used in our organisation, and whenever I come across any problem, the issue is addressed immediately. I liked the way it keeps all the details about the courses in which I'm enrolled and their status like planned, completed and in progress.

I like the overall feel of the system, there are always thing to improve upon for easy of use though. Analytics are amazing!

"Saba"

What do you like best?

It is a great extension for storage and the security behind saba puts our mind at ease. The support and customer services are great. They are available 24/7 and I can talk to a live person. The tracking services it provides are very useful by applying them multiple ways.

What do you dislike?

I have issues with the app on my apple device. I can't speak for android. However, videos don't load, and I don't think it is even supported on my Ipad. Back to using it on the pc. There are many pop-ups when taking online courses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Saba Cloud to others, I would say do your research and choose what best works for your needs and Saba was that fit for us. The apps could use work though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes collaborating easier, we used to use another company however it took too long to send things back and forth. We are able to keep the flow of projects at a faster pace because of this. The tracking is one of the things I use most often.

"Intuitive Learning/Feedback Space"

What do you like best?

Saba Cloud is a great resource for storing performance reviews and offering company sponsored courses. It is easy to register for a class and have it connect with your Outlook Calendar. Personal Development plans are also easy to integrate with your review.

What do you dislike?

The course list can be hard to find, and often a course is listed but not actually available. The Saba Cloud system can also be finicky with certain browsers. For example, we could only print out our reviews while using Google Chrome. If we used Internet Explorer, there were wierd spaces and it used a bunch more paper.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great inter-connectivity between co-workers, but the company must support your courses.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saba Cloud is enabling easy, paperless reviews. The virtual learning (in addition to the in-person learning) is also a great feature.

"More robust than previous LMS"

What do you like best?

I like that there is the option to align Learning and Performance by connecting assignments to development needs identified during performance discussions/reviews.

What do you dislike?

Support can be frustrating, especially when you report something that doesn't work as you would expect. The typical response is that it works as it was designed and you're told to put in an enhancement request to fix it. To me, if a function is poorly designed, it should be a identified as a defect and fixed as soon as possible.

What do you like best?

Intuitive design. All necessary needs are located right in the top right hand corner. Search tool works great.

What do you dislike?

Too many features for what my organization uses. For example in 'Me' area there is a lot of unnecessary options. I would imagine this is just because my organization does not use the software to it's full capabilities, BUT it would be nice to specialize it for my organization so doesn't have so many unused and overwhelming options.

The detailed labels for each module design and completion stage provide meaningful information for admins, but can be confusing for end users without in depth system design knowledge. (i.e. launch, register, enroll, review, retake, etc.)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be an active member in the user community as a wealth of knowledge may be found there.

Focus on engagement prior to implementation if your organization is decentralized and utilizes a corsortium of business owners.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to auto assign annual requirements by eliminating the manual burden for our compliance officers.

"We use it in our district to sign up for classes and to keep track of our professional development"

What do you like best?

It is nice to have all of our information in one place. It it easy to sign up for a class or professional development.

What do you dislike?

it is hard to find past classes and to get my transcripts. I think the main reason for this is the switch from Avatar to SABA, I don't think it is necessarily Saba's fault.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Saba is fairly easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am not trying to solve any business problems. I am a school psychologist.

"Saba Cloud"

What do you like best?

Ease of use for learner; analytics capability. Ability to create checklists and acknowledgements. Ability to attach instructor resources as private to a course or class.

What do you dislike?

Configuring and implementing the system was difficult; felt agile process was too much unless you had a very large team dedicated to the process; information in sprints sometimes seemed conflicting

Recommendations to others considering the product

Configuration phase is rough but once the system is live it works very well and is easy to use.

We are just at the beginning of the implementation phase and plan to roll it out to our company globally over the next 6 months.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to create multiple certifications and curriculums and auto-assign to users versus audiences. Increased reporting capability. Stream-lining of internal processes.

With any cloud solution, upgrades are nice for the latest functionality, upgrades also require change management 3x year.

Saba Cloud is effective for our organization and team members. The ease of configuration is nice, allowing for innovative ways to use the solution. In the process of renewing our contract!

"Difficult in the beginning but improving"

What do you like best?

the impressions function works very well within our business and has helped to drive recognition in a way we have not done previously.

What do you dislike?

Some processes seem illogical - with the problem made worse by "saba speak" throughout the system. It feels like a battle to make the simplest/most straight forward of changes or improvements.

There is so much going on the system that I think we have found it hard to get the best from it, as its all a little overwhelming and not the most user friendly platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

source a number of customer referrals and be sure to have a thorough understanding of your goals before implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

a flexible approach to development appraisals and goal setting. We began with very structured process but have since relaxed this and it appears to be working much better. Employees are now utilizing the social platform to share best practice and big wins from across the business.

"Great program for teacher credits"

What do you like best?

As a teacher, this program has been a wonderful way to gather the coursework that we complete.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike about this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Obviously, my school district chose to switch to Saba in order to manage 1,000's of teachers professional development credits and so they found it an easier way to manage everything.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I no longer need to track the courses that I take in the district because SABA does it for me.

"Saba Survey"

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good product that meets our needs. Not always as flexible as we'd like but we have pretty specific needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting just-in-time training to our field force, home office employees and others. We're able to easily track training.

"User friendly"

What do you like best?

The program is very user friendly. I am able to see what task I need to complete an I am able to complete them with no problem. The site is very easy to navigate. I like that I am able to keep track of all my continuing educations modules that I have completed. I like that it shows me what modules I still need to complete. I like that I can go back to a module and review my test answers.

What do you dislike?

There is not anything I could find that I dislike about the software. As previously stated it is way used friendly.

"Saba Cloud: makes things easier"

What do you like best?

It's very easy to use and I can find all of my trainings in one place versus having to go all over different websites like I had to do before

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it's a little glitchy and when I go to print my certificate it disappears and I have to retake it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can do online training which means no longer in person training. managers were spending a lot of time teaching and employees like working at their own pace so it seems to be better morale since this is implemented

"I use Saba to pull transcripts, so I can plan management and leadership development programs"

What do you like best?

As a repository for classes, transcripts, etc. it does the basics pretty well.

What do you dislike?

It seems more focused on the online user experience, not so much on curriculum analytics. i'm not sure if it's a matter of how my company has configured reporting, or if I'm up against innate limits.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As a user, It's not the world's smoothest experience but it works. One area that really was important for us was the ability to track certifications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I plan and run management and leadership development programs for a large multinational. I use Saba tactically, to register and track course completion, but at the operational level, I need to see who has taken which prerequisites (which continually evolve with new course IDs), who hasn't taken my courses, etc. This is one set of elements leading to invitations.

"It's okay, but can imagine better products out there. "

What do you like best?

It seems the platform can handle a lot in terms of sharing documents, videos, links, etc. You can create a variety of groups.

What do you dislike?

The user interface and group organization. Adoption of the platform has been low both internally and externally. It just isn't user-friendly. It seems to be an outdated UI.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to solve communication and education among customers, partners, and employees. It serves as a central location to drive people to in order to find the enablement materials they need.

"Works for Intended Purpose, UI is Okay"

I like that it is easy to track your progress. You can easily find, add, and then progress through classes. And there is a sense of accomplishment as the color-coded tracker shows how much you have done.

The system can be slow to load. It doesn't always interface well with the lessons created by the company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure your company is prepared to redesign their classes to fit this platform.

It offers required training and professional development opportunities to employees in an online format.

What do you like best?

Easy to use categorization of learning modules. Convenient integration of CE direct modules into the system. Ideal for nurses working in a hospital system requiring online education modules.

Transcripts don't always populate correctly. Can also be a little slow/buggy sometimes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It solves the problem of how to localize learning modules in one place for staff to compete.
