Pros: Ability to manage many subgroups of the organization (e.g., Board of Directors, Vice Presidents, general staff, etc.). Easy to navigate teams within the organization. Great platform to have all general information in one central location for all staff members to be able to access instantaneously.

Cons: Depending on admin. settings, some functionality not available but this is due to the admin and not really the software. Sometimes training video do not load properly, but might be browser compatibility.

Overall: Having a central location with lots of functions to get instant access to information.

Pros: ability to create workspaces. Deactivating courses and automatically removing from employee's transcripts is a nice feature

Cons: The process for setting up new users, assigning training and creating curricula is cumbersome and a step in the wrong direction compared to our previous LMS. Our users have expressed dissatisfaction with the user friendliness of Saba. Missing functionality such as streaming videos and intuitiveness of creating custom reports.

Pros: Flexibility and customization. Widely recognized as leader of learning management system. It is like getting a BMW, you would never go wrong.

Cons: Saba meeting playback, cannot coordinate voice and visual together, customer support speaks to much of a technical language. They need to be more user friendly and speak a customer's language.

Overall: Distance learning, automation and reporting

End user experience is awesome. Admin experience is a little clunky.

Pros: We use several of the modules, so it's nice to have a one-stop-shop system for Learning, Performance, Goals, Social, Workspaces, etc...

Cons: Customer support always leave me wanting more. I used to have an dedicated account manager and he was very nice and helpful, but was not an end user of the product so he was no help with technical or 'how-to' questions.

Saba provides a comprehensive product that just works right out of the box.

Pros: Easy to use. Advanced features and excellent functionality. Looks good with little required configuration. Consistent upgrade cycle has produced many excellent new features and regular fixes and updates. The organization is very responsive to customer requests and suggestions.

Cons: Because the product is comprehensively designed, there are some limitations to customization. Features like notifications and page layout are primarily static. However, the design is of high quality and usability.

The product has met our expectations - and with each new release it improves

Pros: Easy of use, broad functionality to support formal WBT and classroom learning as well as informal learning with its social groups and just - in - time training documentation

Cons: As a cloud customer - you always can't get what you want. You are one of many clients that are requesting enhancements that may or may not get considered.

Overall: Allows Harvard to move all non-academic learning onto a single platform. Includes professional development, compliance (Environmental Health & Safety), research compliance, and application training.

We use Saba to deploy training content and manage session administration and analytics globally.

Pros: The user experience continues to improve exponentially with each update and meets the expectation of a current "Web Experience" from our users. Easy to navigate, intuitive to use and effective at meeting the needs of our many different training functions - win, win!

Cons: I would like to stronger development in the mobile platform that focuses on core learning, rather than social interaction.

The application is easy to use for learners and learning administrators managing training.

Pros: - Easy to use for learning administrators who add content, create courses/classes, and monitor completions.
- Able to use globally including language availability.

-

Cons: - Support is slow to respond on some issues.
- Takes a long time for enhancements to get implemented. Process seems disjointed.
- Release notes could be better formatted to make it easier to identify configuration items and items that require a support ticket to enable.

Overall: Able to manage training through the organization.

Pros: SABA is one of the first LMS systems out in the market that recently just transitioned to a cloud base technology. As such this makes it easier for systems that have smaller infrastructures to use this. It has unlimited storage and a wide variety of applications. It's robust and simple to use and has all the latest features such as gamification, social media, and internal quiz and course building. It is also optimized for cell phone usage. Can't go with a better system.

Cons: It's only real flaw is the price and that it's not generally a fit for smaller to small mid size companies because of it's power, but if you can afford it, this powerhouse is worth it.

Pros: Saba's technical team has been very responsive and implemented many suggestions for design improvements made by our team. The overall design is easy to use and manage for both elearning and instructor led courses. Learners like the website style interface for browsing and completing courses.

Cons: Until customized the layout may have extra buttons / features that even ADMINS don't need to see. Can be cluttered until these options are removed.

Overall: This is the initial LMS implementation for our company. We are now able to launch and track learning to over 8000 employees in a de-centralized organization and with an easy and convenient cloud-based platform that the learners like as much as administrators.

Pros: Full featured.

Cons: Implementation was handled poorly, lots of features were not turned on and there was very little ongoing support. It may have been my company who didn't want to pay for the support but it resulted in SABA becoming a dirty word around our organization. SABA should find a better business model if they want good reviews.

Overall: My review title says it all. I've been in Learning & Development for over 20 years and used multiple LMS systems. SABA has the features found in most LMSs. The issue for me is they focus on selling into mega-sized global companies but their implementation and support processes are sized for small-to-medium sized companies.

Comments: This is an intuitive, holistic system that works intuitively to manage staff relations. My organization found it easy to integrate and apply the features of this system to our preexisting management ethos.

Creating org charts went from taking hours to a single button press

Comments: Our old process was extremely manual. We would have to pull data out of our payroll system then manually create charts ¿ so, manually drawing boxes on pages and writing names on charts etc.

The time involved in that was pretty outrageous. It would often take us months at a time to create an org chart.

We knew the power of Planning@Work and opted to use it straight away. Implementation was so simple that we were up and running in half a day.

Now we have a more automated way of building the charts. We load the information into Planning@Work and it builds the charts for us.

The ease of just clicking a button and having an org chart ready to go is definitely my favourite feature.

We¿re no longer spending months building charts ¿ we click a button and we¿ve got the chart the same day.

Very intuitive and engaging

Comments: Our users love the impressions for recognizing each other via badges. Mobile app is great and simplifies goal setting and ongoing conversations between managers and employees. System generated recommendations for relevant content, courses and experts to connect with are also quite helpful.
