Smartsheet Receives Highest Scores Possible Across 12 Criteria and Subcategories

Smartsheet, the leading SaaS platform for managing and automating collaborative work, today announced it has been named as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Collaborative Work Management, Q4 2016 report.

Forrester Research, Inc. evaluated 13 collaborative work management providers against 25 criteria designed to assess their current offering, strategy, and market presence. Smartsheet received the highest possible score for security, team management, integration, cost and globalization.

"From the early days of Smartsheet, we saw an opportunity to speed up innovation and collaboration by doing away with spreadsheets as the primary way to track and manage work," said Mark Mader, CEO of Smartsheet. "We're thrilled to receive this recognition from Forrester, along with what we believe is validation that the broad market is quickly moving from legacy work management tools to next-gen technologies that support the competitive advantage and innovation that individuals, teams and business leaders seek."

Margo Visitacion of Forrester Research, Inc. writes in the report, “Whether it’s a project or a repeatable business process such as customer service or onboarding new employees, people need a way to organize their work. The CWM market provides solutions that enable teams to have a centralized location to work collectively and share digital content deliverables such as documents, presentations, web content, and videos.”

The report also states, “CWM provides an antidote to email disruptions, as it allows users to create a workspace for teams to collaborate in order to deliver an outcome, capture conversations in the context of the work they’re performing; plan and manage projects without having to adhere to a formal methodology; [and] personalize the workspace to support the way an individual works.”

Today’s workers want to work better and expect unprecedented speed, flexibility, a highly intuitive user experience and the complete elimination of boundaries when collaborating with others. Smartsheet’s extensible and secure platform delivers high-value solutions that remove bottlenecks and streamlines work, so organizations of all sizes can have continuous visibility, accountability and insights.
