Likelihood to Recommend

15Five

I think 15Five is well suited for any organization but especially well suited for larger teams and/or teams that are in various geographical locations. For small teams that work closely together on a daily basis, the user may not see the same returns since there would be ample opportunity for communication.

Saba

Saba is great for all types of users (from technology natives to technology avoiders). The mobile apps are a great complement if your workforce is on the move! Saba is also well-suited for a large, global workforce and supports many languages. The application also performs well for small businesses and franchises.

Pros

  • Flexibility to set your questions by company/team/individual.
  • It is a weekly reporting platform that also has the functionality to do end of year reviews. Having continuity makes the end of year process much more streamlined.
  • Allows individuals to set, report and record progress on weekly goals. These users can then go back later and review these goals and progress throughout the year.

  • Prescriptive Rules allow us to assign training based on data parameters such as job titles and campus locations. Previously, these assignments were manually created and the result of hours of data analysis.
  • Saba's options allow us to provide self-assignment options based on responses to questions related to actual job functions. They also allow us to integrate with collaborative partners in other organizations.

Cons

  • The interface to set up the question frequency is a bit confusing.
  • The 360-degree review functionality is relatively new so there are still some kinks to work out on this part of the product.

  • Changing recurring course expiration dates
  • Transitioning regular courses to recurring courses
  • Not enough customization of HTML

Typically customers that acquire a Saba solution rarely move away. There are reasons and "legends" behind this. The investment is significant. Time and money are required to make the engine go smoothly. But once it runs at full capacity, it doesn't stop! Professional Services are extremely competent and able to close implementation gaps quickly.

Cornerstone offers a cloud-only solution, which may not be convenient for large enterprises with a solid IT department that prefers to own the infrastructure. Saba also has a more complete and unified offering, fruit of a decennial experience in the market. Vision and ability to execute are typically very high in the Saba products, with new innovative functionality constantly added to the products, also thanks to the large customer base that provide significant feedback.

  • 15Five is one of my favorite tools. It has allowed us to keep track of the general morale of the business and to address small issues before they became large issues
  • It has also allowed us to streamline our review process, making everybody's life easier!
