REDWOOD SHORES, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Saba (OTC Pink: SABA), the premier provider of people-centric enterprise solutions, announced today that three of its customers have been named Laureates of IDG's 2013 Computerworld Honors Program.

The 2013 Computerworld Honors program has recognized three Saba customers:

  • SMART Technologies has been named a laureate in the philanthropy category for its online anti-bullying training courses, which are built upon the Saba people development platform. These courses empower caregivers with the social technology skills needed to educate young people about how to prevent and respond to cyberbullying.

  • Schools of Isolated and Distance Education in Western Australia, selected as a laureate in the collaboration category, was acknowledged for its advanced eLearning and virtual classroom program using Saba Classroom.
