Dublin, California - January 31, 2018 - Saba, a leading provider of people-centric talent management solutions has won two coveted Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards.

Optimized Business Performance: Saba Extended Enterprise and eCommerce

In 2017, Saba advanced its Extended Enterprise learning offering with powerful new eCommerce capabilities and a superior mobile experience. In addition to delivering powerful learning to employees, Saba Extended Enterprise enables organizations to offer anytime, anywhere training programs to virtually any audience in their business ecosystem. Saba clients leverage Extended Enterprise to deliver training, certification and other learning experiences to resellers, partners, suppliers, association members, service providers, and customers. Not only can organizations lower support costs and improve customer satisfaction by offering training and product education to customers and end-users, they can also increase revenue by providing programs that enable partners, franchisees and distributors to sell more effectively. The solution enables organizations to personalize learning experiences like never before, extend training beyond internal employees, and through its powerful eCommerce engine develop new revenue streams, monetize training and tap into new opportunities for business growth and profitability.

Bring your Own Learning: Informal Learning Experiences with Measurable Impact

Also released last year, Saba Discovery is an exciting addition to Saba's learning ecosystem, giving employees the opportunity to discover and define their own learning journeys, and enabling learning administrators with the insight needed to track and measure the impact of informal learning right alongside formal learning. In addition to Discovery's Learning Record Store (LRS), a browser-based bookmarklet allows employees to easily find, tag, share and track learning content wherever and whenever they find it. With Saba Discovery, employees are empowered to develop their own personalized learning journeys, while L&D leaders have an unmatched means to assess and measure the impact of all learning experiences, no matter where learning happens.

"Human capital management is evolving faster than at any time in its history, and it is powered by innovative technology developed and implemented by organizations of all sizes," said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and the head of the awards program. "Saba continues to provide their customers with talent management tools to deliver an exceptional employee experience that connects to business outcomes.
