You may have heard the news this fall - Saba was named a Visionary in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites 2018 report. I thought I'd take the opportunity to share some more context on our view of the quadrant, and some of the reasons Saba is proud of our placement in this industry report.
The Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites (Sept 2018) covers talent management products across workforce planning, recruiting and onboarding, performance appraisal, goal management, learning management, career development, succession, and compensation.
And at Saba, we view our Visionary status in this year's Magic Quadrant as not simply an analysis of our solutions against a set of criteria that defines vision and leadership, but as a testament to how our customers are using our solutions to create engaging experiences for their people and results for their companies.
Saba's solutions are designed to deliver a continuous, motivating and personalized experience of learning and development, coaching and feedback, performance growth and recognition that supports employee engagement, while ensuring our customers can align their talent management programs value creation for their companies and link them to the performance goals of their business.
Our approach to partnership with our customers on their talent journey drives everything we do, from our initial engagement with them to solve their immediate business problems, to how we add new capabilities, expand their adoption, and support them as they look to do more.
The voice of our customers is an incredible validation that our approach is making an impact.
Great customer feedback on Peer Insights, Gartner's verified IT review site:
Check out the feedback below shared by Saba Cloud and Saba TalentSpace customers on Peer Insights, Gartner's verified IT review site.
"Saba provided support from the start. The contacts I had from the start helped all the way from the RFP process to post implementation. That continuity was important to us because it felt like I didn't have to keep explaining my environment to a new department...Even three years later a few still reach out to make sure things are going well and offer support. I feel like they truly mean it when they say they build relationships with their customers."
- Sr. Learning and Talent Development Specialist in Retail
"Saba has provided us to integrate a number of areas into one system: learning, performance and talent... The decision to go with Saba was easy. They offered all this at a cost that was very reasonable. We were able to replace our prior LMS with an integrated talent management system, expand our capabilities, provide a consistent user experience, and all at a lower cost."
- Director, Learning and Development in Healthcare
"Created a balance between the company overall needs and the end user- the employee."
- VP, Human Resources at a Manufacturing firm
"The Saba TalentSpace team has been accessible and helpful every step of the way for us... Any time I've had to contact support, their team members have been, prompt, friendly and work to resolve the issue rapidly. Access to support is available via online tickets, chat, or phone. Saba works to frequently provide updates and enhancements to the software based on suggestions, needs and wants from its customers. It's refreshing to gain additional functionality and be heard...They truly care about their customers having a full set of tools to fulfill their needs."
- TalentSpace Administrator in Healthcare
"The Halogen/Saba implementation specialists were knowledgeable and ensured knowledge transfer was complete before allowing us to fly on our own. We tailored the performance process for each office allowing each office to showcase their culture. Allowing tailoring to be done at the business process level was key."
- SVP of Global Talent Solutions in Services Industry
