Svevia Leverages Saba to Improve Productivity and Assure Compliance

Saba’s Unified Learning Management Suite, Hosted Through Partner Comenius, Enables Efficient Training and Certifications for 2,500 Employees Nationwide

REDWOOD SHORES, CA,August 14, 2012 – Saba (NASDAQ:SABA), the premier provider of people-centric enterprise solutions, working with trusted partner Comenius, today announced that Svevia, one of Sweden’s largest road and construction contractors, is leveraging the Saba Unified Learning Management Suite to centralize and coordinate learning and performance management for improved productivity of its workforce. Svevia also uses Saba to control the certifications and compliance for 2,500 employees nationwide.

 

Svevia leverages Saba’s Unified Learning Management Suite to effectively manage Svevia Academy, a centralized training unit at the company. Svevia Academy delivers 130 in-depth training courses for all employees including, ‘Our Way of Work’ – a blended course including instructor-led and e-Learning facets that provides introductory training on Svevia work practices. In 2011, 2,384 Svevia employees participated in training through Svevia Academy.

 

Prior to using Saba, Svevia primarily ran instructor-led training, which was operationally challenging and costly. The company now offers blended learning programs consisting of both instructor-led and e-Learning courses, which has vastly reduced administration and costs. As the program grows, Svevia is adding to the introductory e-Learning courses for new Svevia employees and managers which are included as part of the new starter curriculum. They also plan to develop e-Learning into other areas, for example the environment and safety courses.
