Bellevue, Wash. (PRWEB) March 14, 2017
Smartsheet, the world’s leading cloud platform for managing and automating collaborative work, today announced its latest integration with Microsoft Teams, the new chat-based workspace in Microsoft Office 365. The integration allows teams to have conversations in real time while viewing their collaborative work managed within Smartsheet.
“There’s a tremendous opportunity for organizations to leverage the power of Smartsheet within Microsoft Teams to improve the way work gets done,” said Mark Mader, CEO of Smartsheet. “Bringing together real-time messaging with collaborative work management—two of the fastest growing categories of enterprise collaboration— is a powerful combination.”
The new integration harnesses the creativity and spontaneity of group conversations, pairing it with the agility of collaborative work management to turn conversations into action. Joint Smartsheet and Office 365 customers can choose to add Smartsheet sheets, SightsTM, and reports as ‘Tabs’ within a Team channel. By bringing together conversations with a real-time view of projects, teams can work more efficiently while enhancing the organization’s operational visibility.
“We’re excited to see the integrations our ecosystem partners are creating for the Microsoft Teams platform, built on Microsoft Office 365, enhance the overall experience we're delivering to our users,” said Bhrighu Sareen, General Manager for Microsoft Teams at Microsoft Corp. “Smartsheet’s application for Teams enables people to achieve more through more collaborative and efficient group communications.”
Smartsheet’s integration with Microsoft Teams is the latest in Smartsheet’s “better together” work with Microsoft. Last month, Smartsheet announced three new Office 365 integrations, including an integration with Skype for Business Online, an add-in for Microsoft Outlook on iOS, and the ability to sign into Smartsheet’s Mobile applications using Microsoft Azure Active Directory.
