Competitors & Alternatives

Some of the key competitors for Saba are HyperOffice and Huddle.

HyperOffice provides a cloud based collaboration platform for sharing documents, calendars and contacts with syncing with Outlook available as well. Additionally there is support for discussion forums & surveys, content publishing & distribution, as well as project information collaboration. The product can be accessed via mobile devices and there are user wiki pages for joint editing & review to add more information to the platform.

Saba on the other hand is also a collaboration platform with a special focus on training & development. While it includes some of the features of HyperOffice, it also provides virtual learning programs, includes communities to connect employees, partners & customers, as well as enables team performance reviews. There is also support for live web conferencing which can be recorded for distribution, information inter-linking, personal workspaces, as well as “idea tabs” to encourage out of the box collaboration.

Then there is Huddle which supports individual social workspaces with social team management, but does not provide video conferencing currently. The product also includes workflows and can be customized for both personal & corporate requirements, with a dashboard to monitor daily tasks & assignments. There is also support for project team management, learning development as well as integration with social media as well as Microsoft Office.

In comparison Saba does not support project collaboration, but does include workflows. However it also includes content rating which allows users to rate information for discussion to improve the sharing experience, as well as options for social recognition for outstanding work & contributions.
