WBT Manager™ Mounting Serious Challenge To SABA And Docent In UK LMS Market

A breakthrough low-cost, easy-to-use and scalable Learning Management System (LMS) developed by Integrity e-Learning in the US is mounting a serious challenge to the heavyweight names in the e-learning sector in the UK such as SABA and Docent.

WBT Manager™ has already won over Huthwaite International from SABA, added Transco to its rapidly expanding client list and has been endorsed by one of Europe's foremost producers of bespoke e-learning solutions, ebc.

Distributed in the UK by the Cheshire based FeeNix Consultancy, WBT Manager's success story has been as a result of three unique selling points -

  • · Affordability - the price tag can be as little as one tenth of the SABA product
  • · Simplicity - here is a learning management system so simple it doesn't have to be learned
  • · Scalability - the system can be proved in a small pilot before rolling out to the whole organisation

Huthwaite International, whose clients include such household names as IBM, Oracle and PricewaterhouseCoopers, was one of the first companies in the UK to realise the potential for WBT Manager™.

"We chose our first learning management system, SABA, because we were very impressed with the available functionality," says Rob Taylor, Huthwaite International's Technology Enabled Solutions Manager. "However, the reality was we ended up using only a small percentage of the available functionality.

"In our search for an alternative, we found that WBT Manager™ exactly matched our requirements. We simply wanted to deliver e-learning - and that's what WBT Manager™ does really well.

"Whereas price was obviously an issue - and WBT Manager™ does represent very good value for money - we were more concerned that we should only be paying for the functionality we used.

"Strangely enough, the only worry we had at first was that we couldn't find anything wrong with the software. It is very easy to use thanks to an interface that is extremely intuitive. So easy in fact that my PA, Amanda, acting as the main administrator when we were evaluating WBT Manager™ against SABA managed to replicate all our requirements with very few references to the user manual or demo."

Similar sentiments were echoed by the team at ebc whose clients include DaimlerChrysler, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Asda Stores and the NHS Executive.

"WBT Manager™ is ideal for companies wishing to undertake Web based training," insists Chris Mayer, ebc's Software Engineering Director. "It's a simple and cost effective solution - and that's why our customers like it.

"It is also a favourite with our programmers because it is so easy to get into. So much so that they describe it as 'a refreshing change'".

Director of e-learning at FeeNix Consultancy, Fiona Leteney believes that WBT Manager will effectively kick start the sector which, in the wake of the dotcom fall-out, has yet to achieve anywhere near its full potential.

"We believe that WBT Manager™ will achieve a significant breakthrough for e-learning because at a stroke it solves the three issues which have shackled the sector to date - cost, ease of use and starting off small," says Fiona Leteney.
