I did not look into any other products. Saba Cloud was the first one I saw and I was impressed so I went with it. Saba Cloud is robust and very detailed so I think it can handle what people are looking for in the Learning Management System. There are probably even more features within Saba Cloud that I am unaware of that could be beneficial to other businesses as well.

Saba Cloud offered more abilities and better response time to issues and improvements to the platform. We are able to provide a seamless, easy to use, LMS for our customers, which improves the usage of our training program. The user-friendly and customizable homepage has allowed us to make our Saba Cloud uniquely ours!

For what we receive from Saba LMS, compared to the cost of others that we evaluated, it is the best value for the needs that we have. The ease of use of the system, once implemented, is by far better than the other LMS systems we evaluated. Each year we look at other options, but in the past 5 years, we have not changed.

As I mentioned earlier, I was one of the many volunteers who undertook the sandbox activity to choose between Saba and Cornerstone for the LMS. The reason why Saba was chosen as a hands-down favorite was because of its user-friendliness and the ease of usage. Other factors which favored Saba were cost, functionality, implementation, vendor roadmaps and support our multi-lingual requirement.

Saba Cloud has a more straightforward user interface than Cornerstone OnDemand, but the simplicity is not always a benefit. We moved from SilkRoad because of its lack of features. Saba Cloud has a more features than SilkRoad, but fails to make those feature accessible in an intuitive way for our some of our less tech savvy users.

Saba is by far the best LMS on the market. It was one of the first cloud-based systems and have had experience with multiple LMS systems before the Saba platform was even launched. For the size that Saba can handle the price although a little bit more expensive can do pretty much everything in the LMS realm. I couldn't recommend a better system.

Saba Cloud has best Learning Reports and Analytics which is not available with other LMS applications. Saba Cloud has eCommerce feature which is widely used across many industries. Clients who were using Saba Enterprise application have preference to migrate to Saba Cloud for easy shift. Hence Saba application was preferred over other LMS applications.

We shopped Cornerstone OnDemand and Saba. The customer support during the review process was hands-down better at Saba than COD. Saba was responsive to our questions and listened to our needs before responding to how they could help us meet them. Although they did keep in touch as we worked through our RFP process, they didn't pressure us into making the quick decision. We liked that the sales manager teamed up with a customer support manager so we could really dig into the details of the product functionality. Although the other company offered many of the same options, their salesperson was not as well-versed or helpful as the Saba team. Saba even took the time to customize our sandbox site so it felt like ours before we started. Not the same experience with the other vendor.

SAP SuccessFactors was the first LMS platform that I have ever used. The main difference I saw right away between the two platforms is how Saba allows the customer to customize their home page very thoroughly. I think that this is a great feature! SuccessFactors did not have that in-depth of a customization home page. SuccessFactors also seemed perhaps even more confusing to use for the admin. The wording was weird for a lot of the settings. Saba seems to be a little more interactive overall for both the end-user and admin.

Saba has a competitive LMS with both Brightspace and Canvas. It offers class and course management that is easy to use. It out classes the others by its use of assessment tools and analytics. Where Saba excels is in its talent management system. Being able to track users and assign courses, curriculum, etc. is a huge benefit to our organization.

Each of the other platforms we used or researched had their own specialities. Some were excellent for specific uses. We wanted a tool that had a more comprehensive package though with performance, compensation and succession planning. This way the tool could grow with us. Given the expanded HR functions we still wanted learning at the core, though, and Saba does that. The peer learning tools were far better than others we looked into.

I have used a lot of LMSs in the past and I think that Saba does a lot of good things that the others could not do effectively. Automated the assignment of courses is difficult but this has a lot to do with business rules and organizational structure. I think the Saba's UI is more modern in its design and is a lot more user-friendly to administer than the other products listed.

Looking for new kind of courses, specifically in the enterprise model, is good to have. In terms of reports it generates, Saba is good, rather than going for the Zoho Reports, where we have to make every thing by hand.

I have primarily used the cloud learning platform of Saba and its related subsidiaries. During the evaluation, we compared Saba with another service provider. Among the many pilot users of my company, Saba got a quite good score, which helped us to go ahead with recommending Saba for our learning platform.

I was not part of the process to select Saba, but based on team feedback, we went with Saba mainly because of its capabilities in reporting and analytics. We also chose to use it due to its learning environment capabilities and the potential for growth that the system has in the coming years to meet our needs.
