I can recommend tessello to any organization for better learning programs. It has intuitive user interface that promotes effective organization of events. It ensures that there is no data leakage to unauthorized parties for each learner. Our documents and performance list is always secure with individual portals. It has contributed to teamwork in our company during joint task collaboration and project implementation.

Pros

Saba Cloud

  • Skills Management - Saba has allowed us to set specific expectations for employees based upon their role, and this has clarified the skill requirements for employees.
  • Goal Management - With Saba, managers can easily create goals aligned up to senior leadership, and then work with their direct reports to create supporting goals.
  • Learning Management - Using Saba's built-in Smart Lists, assigning compliance training is a simple process that used to be a challenge in our former LMS.

  • Enhancement of collaboration across among team members
  • Provision of business analytics

Cons

Saba Cloud

  • 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.
Chris Salles | TrustRadius Reviewer

tessello

  • The current features performance have been awesome.

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

Saba Cloud

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.

We switched to tessello from its great features that support our learning system. The deployment process took us very minimal time and started running immediately. This product ensures that each employee performance is well monitored and when there is need for skill advancement it notifies our managers. The support team is always available when there is a problem and can easily guide via live chat.

Return on Investment

Saba Cloud

  • 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.
Joe Geppert | TrustRadius Reviewer

tessello

  • It has contributed positive and faster ROI since we deployed it.
  • It has highly achieved our set goals from effective and reliable performance.
