Good virtual meeting facility, distance learning, and online assessment tools
Pros and Cons
  • "The Meeting feature is similar to a conference call facility that can be used for virtual meetings."
  • "The user interface is in need of improvement."

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and Saba Cloud is one of the products that we implement for our clients. Our customers include banks, as well as other companies.

What is most valuable?

The Saba learning management system (LMS) is quite good. The platform includes a communication platform that uses social media, where users can use it to communicate with each other. They can create groups, have discussions, and so forth. The Meeting feature is similar to a conference call facility that can be used for virtual meetings. Distance learning, online assessment, and career planning features are very useful.

What needs improvement?

The user interface is in need of improvement. Reporting and analytics capabilities could be more flexible. The platform is more useful for a corporate team program rather than for individual users, which is something that could be improved. Better support for iOS is needed.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Saba Cloud for about three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Saba Cloud is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a very scalable solution and the performance is not an issue. It also supports mobile devices.

How are customer service and support?

Online technical support is good but offline technical support can be improved a little bit.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked with similar solutions in the past and I think that for a corporate setting, Saba is the best.  In my former company, we used the SAP SuccessFactors product. Compared to SAP, Saba is very reasonably priced. I also find that their platform is not as good as Saba. If I were rating SAP then I would score it a six out of ten.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is very reasonable, considering the quality.

What other advice do I have?

One of the good things with Saba is that they have money and time management in one platform. They have experts around the globe and take input from the users. It is quite easy to use, yet also quite powerful, and because the systems are integrated you don't have to manage two different ones. For example, if you need financial and time management reports then they are all in one place. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Provided the ability to build cross-functional teams. The mobile app needs improving.

What is most valuable?

  • I value the mobility: Anytime and anywhere
  • Ubiquity of technology: Accessible via browser, tablet, or smartphone

How has it helped my organization?

It has provided the ability to build cross-functional teams. It enables collaboration across a globally dispersed organization.

What needs improvement?

The mobile app needs improving. The product roadmap indicates that the improvements being released this year will put the mobile app and browser version at the same level.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used the product for two years personally, and for four years in my current organization.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The platform itself is very stable and secure. Just like with anything cloud, however, you are always going to encounter issues that are not common and resolved within minutes.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability were encountered. One of the platform benefits is the ease of scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would give technical support a rating of 7/10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

At our current organization, this has been the platform of choice.

How was the initial setup?

I was not involved in the initial setup.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Ask the vendor to arrange to engage you with customers who are the same size and see how they implemented the solution. Ask them what challenges they encountered. Find out what licensing options were considered and reflecting on their initial decision, if they would change anything now.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As mentioned, I was not involved in the initial setup

What other advice do I have?

Do your own research, speak to current customers, get access to the platform and test it for the months. Test everything: ILT, VLT, Web, Video, Mobile, Communities, etc.

Clients can create external pages and then integrate them within the product.

What is most valuable?

Features such as the auto waitlist, prescriptive rules and team approvals are the most valuable in this product.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows the clients to do their customization within and outside of this product. For example, they can create external pages and can integrate them with Saba.

What needs improvement?

They can make it more simple in terms of UI. The UI is complex in regards to the navigation and functionality.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution, i.e., the Saba Enterprise and Saba Cloud, for more than five years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We did not face any issues while deploying the product nor did we encounter any stability issues either.

However, we may have faced some issues while dealing with enhancements.

How are customer service and technical support?

  • For the Saba Enterprise editions - Technical support is average.
  • For the Saba Cloud platform - Technical support is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have been working with Saba from the beginning of my career and I am still continuing to do so.

How was the initial setup?

It was quite simple and straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

It should be a mutual co-operation between the vendor and in-house teams in order to implement the product. No single team, i.e., neither the in-house nor the vendor team, can individually implement this product.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise others to compare with other LMS products before they stick to any particular one.

They should consider other factors such as their user count, usability, budget, risk management, disaster management, the various types of functionalities that they are looking for and so on.
