Saffron Interactive, award-winning learning technologies and consultancy provider, has continued to grow in influence in the digital learning sphere, increasing its Presence rating in the 2017 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning.


Saffron demonstrated robust performance across all areas ranked in the 2017 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning (Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Total Cost of Ownership and Future Trajectories across the market), maintaining its status as a Core Challenger. The increase of its presence from Low to Mid highlights Saffron’s growing influence in the digital learning field, a trend that looks set to continue. This year, the company has crafted innovative solutions for major clients as diverse as Coca Cola Hellenic, William Hill and Amec Foster Wheeler.

“Saffron’s growth is propelled by the measurable results we create for clients” says Noorie Sazen Saffron’s CEO. “Saffron uses design techniques steeped in behavioural science to accelerate change and produce transformational results such as the independently audited $100 million increase in brand value directly attributable to the blended learning intervention created by Saffron for Michelin.”

The Fosway 9-Grid™ is a five dimensional market analysis model that is used to understand the relative position of solutions and providers in the learning and talent systems market. David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group, comments, ‘Digital learning is evolving to encompass more rounded solutions and the 2017 recalibration of the 9-Grid™ demonstrates the changes we are seeing in customer demand and buying behaviour. Saffon’s growth in market presence sees it maintain its position as a Core Challenger, highlighting its ability to deliver a wide range of solutions with a good track record of customer advocacy.”
