COVID-19 will undoubtedly be one of the most unforgettable events of the century. From the stay at home orders, to business closures, essentially every person in the world has been impacted by this pandemic in one way or another. One of the changes COVID-19 has driven is a rapid shift to remote work, whether organisations were ready or not.

A recent report by 451 Research found that only 23% of organisations are prepared to win in the new world of work as employees dive headlong into digital immersion. That same report found the top three productivity challenges to be 1) distractions from too many voice, video, messaging, and email conversations, 2) not having tools to quickly build and easily adapt new business processes, workflows, or project designs, and 3) not having the right mix of tools to be effective. In fact, 70% of office workers still rely on email to track and measure output. But the next generation is ready for a new way to work.

Smartsheet is a leading collaborative work management (CWM) platform that empowers distributed organisations to plan, capture, manage, automate, and report on work at scale, enabling them to move faster, drive innovation, and achieve more. An extensible platform backed by enterprise-grade security, Smartsheet is used by more than 83,000 brands across over 190 countries to implement, manage, and automate processes across a broad array of use cases. The Smartsheet Aligned partner program is a 5-star rated 2020 CRN partner program guide winner and is designed to help firms enable the creation of new, high-value offerings for customers.

For example, a Smartsheet partner out of Germany built an allocation tool for COVID-19 test kits for a healthcare organisation using Smartsheet and additional premium products. As a result, more than 170 countries can use a Smartsheet Dashboard to see how many test kits they will receive in what week to test their citizens.

Another European partner sold licenses to a leading global food delivery company by showcasing the value of Smartsheet and offering customised paid training to employees. The customer’s growth has increased over 90% in Q2 because of COVID-19 and the need for people to stay home, and Smartsheet is helping them organise and manage the business around the world.

Gone are the days of predictability in the rhythm of business after seeing the widespread impact of COVID-19 and accelerated innovations across all industries. Customers require a new way to be more agile and interconnected using solutions and working with partners that meet their dynamic work needs and the needs of their organisation.
