Arc’teryx Adopts Smartsheet to Support Global Connectedness and Innovation
ENGAGE ’19, October 2, 2019 -- Smartsheet (NYSE: SMAR), the platform for enterprise achievement, today announced that Canadian design and manufacturing leader Arc’teryx has adopted Smartsheet to improve global collaboration and help reach its ambitious business goals.
Arc’teryx specializes in technical high-performance outerwear and equipment. It was founded in North Vancouver, B.C. on the idea that “there’s always a better way.” The company adopted Smartsheet to help pursue its innovation goals while improving communication across global offices.
Arc’teryx products are distributed through more than 3,000 retail locations worldwide, including 50 branded stores.
“Our challenge was that in moving from being a small company to a large one, we naturally experienced a disconnect in some of our offices,” said Tom Giannelli, Senior Manager, Business Solutions at Arc’teryx. “We have a deceptively challenging mission to design simple solutions to complex challenges, so it’s critical that everyone in the organization is working as one. Smartsheet makes that happen.”
The company’s goals include providing greater transparency about how products are manufactured, maximizing product performance and durability to limit their impact on the environment, and reducing the time it takes to bring a product to market.
Arc’teryx uses Smartsheet to track progress toward these goals and improve visibility and decision-making across its global offices. Collecting and surfacing insights in Smartsheet allows everyone from senior leadership to a person working in an office overseas to have access to the same real time updates.
Arc’teryx was featured during the opening keynote at Smartsheet’s third annual ENGAGE global customer conference taking place this week in Seattle, Washington. Watch how Arc’teryx is achieving more with Smartsheet here.
