Revolutionizing Project Management: One Bad Practice at a Time

Bad practice experience, a shared story by our consultant:

Once, I worked in a company that used Excel for issue tracking. I experienced the following: my team members got assigned to tasks during meetings they didn’t attend in Excel sheets. Then, there were sent out meeting minutes in emails where the responsible persons were just in copy. It was expected from the organization, that everyone read all emails and attachments—of course, time-consuming and not manageable. This led to frustration among my employees.
Solution:
We changed the issue and open point lists into  #smartsheet and run a simple workflow—it’s called “New tasks assigned.” So, if anyone in the organization assigned tasks to a person, he got an instant mail and could approve or reject the assignment. In this way, we reduced email traffic, got more efficient in follow-up, and increased the team’s satisfaction. This is just one example of how Smartsheet can help to improve communication and productivity in a team.

  • Implementation time
    Smartsheet is a cloud-based project management and collaboration platform that allows you to manage your projects and workflows with ease and efficiency. You can implement Smartsheet in your organization within days and import your existing project files from Excel, Trello, or MS Project without losing any data or formatting. For example, we helped one of our clients integrate 150 employees across different functions and locations in just 10 days using Smartsheet. We provided them with Smartsheet training, support, and best practices to ensure a smooth transition and a successful project outcome.
  • Cost Licences
    Smartsheet has a unique feature that lets users without a license work on the cloud-based platform. They can comment, update statuses, and read data with limited access. Smartsheet has flexible licensing options to suit your project management and collaboration needs. You can start with three licenses for $1400 per year and invite as many collaborators as you want to work on your projects.
