Smartsheet offers COVID-19 resources for government agencies
Smartsheet has announced that governments and agencies responding to the COVID-19 crisis can use its government-specific instance of Smartsheet, Smartsheet Gov, free of charge and without obligation. According to the company, several agencies have already tapped the capabilities of Smartsheet Gov to help them plan, track, and collaborate on their responses.
“We are committed to supporting the government response to COVID-19. That’s why we are making Smartsheet Gov, our FedRAMP-authorized environment, available for any U.S. government agency responding to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mark Mader, CEO of Smartsheet. “Government agencies can now use Smartsheet to plan, coordinate, track, and communicate their COVID-19 response, free of charge and without any obligation.”
Smartsheet Gov is a secure, enterprise-grade platform designed for government agencies, built on AWS GovCloud (U.S.) and is a FedRAMP-authorized collaborative work management platform.
Smartsheet federal government customers include the Department of Agriculture, Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Department of Health and Human Services, General Services Administration, and the Smithsonian Institution.
The company also released a set of free templates for any organization modeled after assets Smartsheet built internally that can be used to create a COVID-19 operations dashboard. The dashboard serves as an information hub and resource center for employees and can help any organization understand and assess risks and collect data on needs or health changes in their population. To date, over 3,400 templates are in use across several industries including healthcare, professional services, and technology.
