Admin Simplification for easier Online Collaboration

Saba’s next generation chat is here…  still has all the great capabilities you’ve grown to love, like instant elevation of a chat conversation to a Saba Meeting, but with improved message handling and even faster than before!



Easily invite Groups to Meetings

With fully featured Web Conferencing, Virtual Classrooms, Online Meetings and Chat built right into the platform, the Saba People Cloud is already one of the most powerful real-time collaboration engines on the market today.  And now, with Group Meetings, meeting with teams of people is even easier.
