Degreed Inc.
Degreed is a software that is undoubtedly worth integrating in companies that plan or require the teaching of new topics and material to their employees. This platform is very easy to use, the interface is easy to use and provides detailed information on the learning that each of the employees has had, these learning details can be viewed by accessing the profile section of each employee. Degreed allows you to share strategic material with employees in the form of a "playlist" so that they can learn in an order of all the information. In addition, it allows you to create all kinds of certifications to provide employees with certificates based on behavior, evidence and approvers. These three certification phases make it possible to verify the information learned by the employee, in addition, they allow it to be known how much he has learned and what skills he has developed during that learning period. Without a doubt, Degreed is the best option for all companies that want to add learning content for their employees.

  • Saba continues to improve their reporting and analytics. While it is much improved over previous versions, it can be improved.
  • Release Notes for system updates need to be delivered to admins farther in advance of the update in order to prepare properly.

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.

As someone who creates classes and is also a learning administrator in the system, I have run into some issues with the system's capabilities for my needs. I am not a fan of having to use Adobe Captivate to download a PowerPoint presentation into the system, as my training sessions are much more than a glorified PowerPoint. Our organization has yet to turn on Saba Meetings, which may help with these limitations.

For the times that we have used the support provided by Saba, it has been a very pleasurable experience for our department. Part of our package with Saba includes a specified number of hours of "training" time with Saba. During these meetings, we have shared our desires of the product and the support personnel have either shown us how to accomplish our task or they have taken our requests to their developers to look at future enhancements. Overall, very pleased with the support.

Alternatives Considered
Degreed Inc.
I think that in a business setting, Degreed is more streamlined to benefit us than almost any other tool. Canvas is great in higher/lower education where the learning is the actual product. In a business setting, tools like Degreed and Bridge do a wonderful job helping our employees build and show their own ROI to upper management.

We had extensive reviews with a plan of what we needed and must have out of the system, including custom learning paths and tracking inside our HRIS system to grant permissions and positions based on completed learning certifications and courses. We weighed each option and chose based on the one that met the most of the must-haves.

Return on Investment
Degreed Inc.
  • Our employees were able to develop new skills and new talents that allowed them to have better productivity and could develop better activities within our labor sector.
  • We have saved money on the learning material compartment. We used to spend a lot of money on material for our employees, but the courses Degreed offers are at a more affordable price.
  • The socialization of our employees has improved significantly. Thanks to the "community" system that Degreed offers, our employees can discuss learning topics while taking a course or watching a video.

  • This may seem small but with 90% of our workforce not at our main facility just the fact that since July 1, 2021, we have had over 18,956 compliance-related training completed by our staff. Do the math the ROI is wonderful.
