With so many cloud-based tools available, connectivity and interoperability are extremely important to keep business flowing smoothly.
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
An essential utility for coordinating work for more than 43,000 organizations, Smartsheet today launched its App Gallery to showcase 40 pre-built and partner-built integrations with leading cloud-based solutions including DocuSign, Evernote, JIRA, Tableau, Mailchimp, Box, Dropbox, Marketo, Salesforce and Harvest. The apps, add-ons and integrations, together with an engaged developer community using the Smartsheet API, extend the power and utility of Smartsheet. As a result, work is done more efficiently while silos of information between solutions and processes are eliminated.
"The BYOA trend is alive and well within enterprises – employees are actively seeking tools to help them be more productive in the workplace," said Mark Mader, Smartsheet president and CEO. "With so many cloud-based tools available, connectivity and interoperability are extremely important to keep business flowing smoothly. Our App Gallery serves as the centerpiece for making Smartsheet a centralized platform – an essential utility – for managing work easily and intelligently."
Smartsheet’s spreadsheet-inspired work management tool is used by millions worldwide to collaborate and manage a wide variety of projects and processes, from marketing campaigns and product launches to business operations and HR initiatives. The App Gallery helps Smartsheet users quickly discover, access and try different add-ons and connectors between the cloud apps to enable workflows such as:
- DocuSign: Send selected Smartsheet attachments such as contracts to DocuSign for electronic signature, and get signed documents back into Smartsheet.
- Evernote: Transform a free-form note in Evernote into an actionable, assigned task in Smartsheet.
- Box: Link files stored in Box to projects or rows in Smartsheet and keep relevant files in context with the project.
- Salesforce: Attach a Smartsheet to any Salesforce object, such as an account, opportunity, or contact for real-time team collaboration.
Launching the App Gallery is the company’s latest move to lead the next generation of work in the enterprise where departments communicate freely and people collaborate across teams (internal as well as external with clients and vendors), devices and platforms. With the introduction of the Smartsheet API a year ago, and more recently, the Smartsheet Labs initiative and numerous SDK announcements, the company continues to invest in ways to make it easier to integrate its tool seamlessly into existing applications and across a wide variety of use cases.
Smartsheet is deployed in a broad range of customer environments, from large enterprises including Google, Netflix, GSA, Groupon, ESPN, Sony Music and HomeAway, to small and medium-sized organizations such as Eli Lilly Federal Credit Union, Loyola University and Cypress Grove Chevre.
