We’re pleased to announce that Smartsheet was named to the Constellation ShortList™ for Work Coordination Platforms. This category, which used to be called Social Task Management, has evolved as technology has progressed. Smartsheet was previously named to the Constellation ShortList™ for Social Task Management three times in a row, and we’re excited to see this market transform as our technology evolves to better serve our customers.
Alan Lepofsky, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research, is a leading analyst on technology and the future of work and author of the the Constellation ShortList™ for Work Coordination Platforms. According to Lepofsky, Work Coordination Platforms like Smartsheet are transformational for businesses looking to improve their current processes and performance.
Lepofsky sees Work Coordination Platforms as technologies that combine “the collaboration features of social networking software with the organizational and task features of project management software.” Work Coordination Platforms help businesses get work done more effectively, more accurately, and in ways that can be repeated.
In the video below, Lepofsky explains the evolution of this category and the significance of Work Coordination Platforms for businesses to organize and structure the work they do today, including collaboration and communication channels. He also discusses how Work Coordination Platforms fit into a business’s technology strategy, and why businesses should seriously consider this transformational technology.
