Smartsheet Offers Chrome App in Chrome Web Store

Addition of collaboration tool brings more business utility apps to any computer with Chrome.

Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) December 12, 2013

Today Smartsheet announced its popular work management tool is available as a Chrome App in the Chrome Web Store, and is featured in the Google Chrome Blog announcement.

As a Chrome App, the spreadsheet-inspired collaboration tool launches from the toolbar in a separate window outside of Chrome, looking and feeling similar to a native mobile app on tablets and smartphones.

"Providing multiple ways to access your work is at the very heart of being productive – and is core to the value Smartsheet delivers," said Mark Mader, CEO and president of Smartsheet. "Many of our customers, especially internationally, use Smartsheet with Chrome to achieve a fast and reliable user experience. With the Chrome App, we’re continuing to optimize for the Chrome browser, delivering greater convenience and speed to our customers."

When installed, the Smartsheet app launches directly from the taskbar – outside of Chrome, just like desktop apps – for easy and fast access. Additionally, the app takes center stage without the Chrome tabs, buttons or text boxes, giving users full-screen experience, free from the distractions of the Web.

"It’s encouraging to see the Chrome Web Store continue to evolve and feature more business apps," added Mader. "Smartsheet is a great addition for this fast-growing Chrome community as it’s a familiar, easy-to-use and highly flexible collaboration tool for coordinating work."

Teams across more than 150 countries use Smartsheet to organize, plan and execute a broad spectrum of projects and processes, including marketing campaigns, product launches, business operations, events, strategic planning and HR initiatives. Smartsheet is deployed in a broad range of customer environments, from large enterprises including HomeAway, DHL, Toshiba, ESPN, Sony Music and MetLife to small and medium-sized organizations such as Eli Lilly Federal Credit Union, Loyola University and Cypress Grove Chevre.
