Saffron Interactive’s learning portal named on Top 20 Watch List

Saffron Interactive has been named as ‘one to watch’ on this year’s Learning Portal Companies Watch List. Training Industry has recognised Saffron and its open-source LMS, Saffron Grow, as an industry trailblazer amongst a growing list of clients that value innovation and user-impact.

“Our platforms prioritise learners and end-users”, comments Noorie Sazen, CEO at Saffron Interactive. “They help clients to change their learning culture, moving from a compliance-based ‘push’ model to a ‘pull’ model of continuous learning, based on dashboards and user contributions”.

“We like to see Saffron Grow as the activist-LMS: it feels more like the websites and apps your learners actually use than the old fashioned interfaces which still prevail in the wider marketplace. It’s great for that to be recognised with our inclusion on the Watch List”.

This is the fourth annual list compiled by industry experts at Training Industry. The watch list is a guide to the most innovative entrants to the learning portal market, and inclusion was based on this rigorous set of commercial criteria:

  • Breadth of functionality and capabilities
  • Commitment to the corporate training market
  • Industry visibility, innovation and impact
  • Number and strength of clients
  • Geographic reach

“This year’s Learning Portal Companies Watch List illustrates the growth and entrance of many new and upcoming organizations in this segment”, said Ken Taylor, Training Industry Inc.’s Chief Operating Officer. “These companies are used by major organizations to successfully support their corporate learning and development initiatives”.
