Smartsheet extends platform for government agencies
Smartsheet, a cloud-based platform for work execution, is releasing Smartsheet for Government, allowing federal employees to accelerate innovation. The announcement of the solution was made at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector Summit in Washington, D.C.
Smartsheet Gov is a secure solution created specifically to help government organizations accelerate innovation and keep pace with the modern workplace.
Built on the AWS GovCloud (US-East) and (US-West) Regions, the platform enables federal agencies and other entities to organize and scale processes, streamline workflows and automate repetitive but critical tasks, allowing them to focus on higher-value activities, increase collaboration across departments, and boost transparency to better serve citizens.
Workers at all levels will have this new tool for their execution of daily work so they can track that work and allow executives to make the best decisions, explained Ignacio Martinez, VP of security, risk & compliance.
Smartsheet achieved FedRAMP “In Process” status in April and is currently the only work execution platform listed in the FedRAMP marketplace for federal agencies and government contractors.
Smartsheet Gov has been in beta testing with customers since February, with general availability signaling that customers are now able to purchase the full solution.
“That’s what drew us to create this,” Martinez said. “There was a good backlog of demand.”
Some of the customers that utilized the beta include units of NASA such as JPL, NOAA, and more, according to Martinez.
“It runs the gamut of types of agencies,” Martinez said.
The company hopes to offer more services including security boosts to federal agencies in the future.
“Our focus right now is on helping customers that expressed interest in this purchase and deploy across their organizations,” Martinez said.
Smartsheet representatives are showcasing the platform, sharing best practices from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) process and highlighting customer success stories at multiple sessions during the event.
Smartsheet leaders presenting at the Summit include Senior VP of Strategic Accounts Mike Andrews, VP of Product Marketing Amy Frampton and. Smartsheet customers including Legal Services Corporation will also share insights on their organizational transformation efforts.
