2014 - Smartsheet helps companies to visualize their teamwork. Beware SharePoint



Smartsheet, the spreadsheet-based project and work management platform, is now making it easier for companies to understand how their employees actually work and to get better visibility into what’s happening in their companies. Ideally, that means tracking all the different projects and people involved in them in a company. With Smartsheet Account Maps you can see who runs most of the projects in a group, for example (which is great for when you ask for a raise) or who doesn’t (which isn’t so great when it’s time for your annual report). But you can also see the connections between different groups. By default, Smartsheet makes a basic map available to all users.
