Smartsheet looks like a spreadsheet and has all the familiar features for navigating and handling a spreadsheet.  User familiarity with the spreadsheet format ensures that the learning curve is very short and users are not intimidated by the complex nature of the software. It looks simple and is easy to use.

When used for generic project management, Smartsheet allows users to work using any device they are comfortable with. The workflow can be customized to your specific requirements and is based on standard best practices in the industry. Using the solution, managers can:

  • Manage both traditional and agile and fast moving projects,
  • Maintain close control over costs and project scope,
  • Monitor the progress of the project in real time, and
  • Keep the project teams closely focused on critical activities.

Daily and weekly reports about various aspects of your projects keep managers updated with project status and ensure that there are no surprises. A module called the project charter ensures that the project is clearly defined and there is no ambiguity about the goals and the team members responsible for them.

Smartsheet has a great feature called cell linking that allows several different projects to be connected. If you update a schedule in a project that is linked to another project, the linked cells check for dependencies between the projects and ensure that a change in one project does not adversely impact another.
