BELLEVUE, WA: Centric Digital, a digital transformation company that renovates business models and customer experience announces that it has saved nearly 40 hours a week on client projects, netting $132,000 as savings in a year after deploying Smartsheet as its primary project management tool.

Smartsheet is a spreadsheet based collaborative work management platform for organizations to plan and execute a broad spectrum of projects and processes, including marketing campaigns, product launches, business operations, manufacturing processes, strategic planning and HR initiatives.

Smartsheet, a Software as a Service (SaaS) company offers a collaboration and work management platform. The platform has a familiar spreadsheet-like interface combined with file sharing, work automation and Gantt chart features. Additionally, Smartsheet offers mobile apps, pre-built templates, and integrations with leading cloud apps such as Box, Dropbox, Salesforce, Microsoft Office 365 and Google for Work.

 The company says that after adopting Smartsheet as its collaborative hub for planning and tracking the execution of all client work, it has streamlined the project management processes. Teams can now work more efficiently, enabling the company to take on more projects. The solution has also increased the organization’s visibility into project management thereby creating a culture of transparency and accountability within the company.

Centric Digital runs a cloud-based operation, meaning there’s no paperwork, desk phone or fax machine in sight at their offices. The team is now empowered with enterprise-grade project management features such as Gantt charts and work automation that organizations need to effectively manage their projects.

“We needed something that could be easily learned and adopted by everybody; we want to do as little project management administration as possible so we can focus our efforts on delivering solutions to clients, not managing a tool. And using Smartsheet, including on our mobile devices, allows us to do that,” says Brian Manning, President and Chief Digital Officer, Centric Digital. The project management tool provides real time visibility into projects across the company so they can anticipate problems.
