BELLEVUE, Wash., June 10, 2019 -- Smartsheet (NYSE: SMAR), a leading cloud-based platform for work execution, today announced the general availability of Smartsheet Gov at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector Summit in Washington, D.C. 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 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.
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.
“This is a significant milestone and we’re looking forward to receiving final approval as part of the FedRAMP process,“ said Gene Farrell, Chief Product Officer of Smartsheet. “AWS has been a great partner on this journey, which makes this Summit the perfect opportunity to reinforce how Smartsheet Gov can help government agencies digitally transform and achieve more for their constituents.”
