Extend training beyond your workforce
In today’s interconnected world of work, your organization’s success depends on much more than your employee training. You need to be able to train any audience in your business ecosystem, including your extended workforce, partners, resellers, dealers, distributors, association members, customers and more.
Saba’s extended enterprise learning and collaboration capabilities — coupled with a powerful e-commerce engine — allows you to facilitate highly scalable, efficient and effective training to any external audience.

Ensure your channel partners are in compliance. Manage all training records for your extended enterprise using one system, and simplify the management of compliance and certification processes with powerful course assignment, tracking and reporting capabilities.
Make extended workforce learning more accessible and engaging with broad content support and a variety of integrated delivery options. With Saba, you can easily create, catalog, manage and track all types of informal (websites, articles, blogs, videos, etc.) and formal learning activities (web-based, instructor-led, video-based, or file based courses and classes, as well as SCORM, AICC, and Tin Can (xAPI) compliant e-learning). You can also deliver live or recorded training sessions using Saba’s virtual meeting solution, and reach your extended enterprise no matter where they are. Learning groups can be added to each course and communities can be formed for more general program support, giving learners a place to discuss, ask questions and share resources.
Personalized Extended Workforce Learning Plans
Get the most out of your investment in training by making sure course assignments and due dates are effectively communicated to extended workforce learners in your external business ecosystem. Each learner will have access to a simple and personalized dashboard known as “My Plan” with learning due dates and access to all activities. This dashboard makes it easy for your learners to keep track of what they need to do and when they need to do it by. Mobile accessibility also provides on-the-go job aids, completed training, social groups, and even the ability to collaborate and ask questions to others in the extended learning ecosystem.
Allina has gone beyond simply using Saba to educate its employees and associated physicians, offering conferences, certification programs, and other training to more than 4,000 external learners. These individuals include administrators, physicians, volunteer staff, and others.
