Smartsheet gives you free internal and external collaborators who can edit and contribute to sheet data, eliminating silos and bringing teams together with control.

Scaling icon

Easier collaboration

Most internal collaboration in Asana requires a paid license.

Protect your organization’s data using powerful security and data governance controls to manage risk and maintain compliance.

24/7 around the clock support

Enterprise security and governance

Asana has some basic security but lacks enterprise grade administration and governance.

Smartsheet can support processes from simple project management to enterprise-level portfolio planning and will partner with you to ensure success.

Complex project management

Asana can support simple project management but lacks the flexibility and advanced capabilities to connect projects across an organization.

Portfolio reporting with Smartsheet is automated and has options to create tailored experiences.


Advanced portfolio management

Portfolio management in Asana is increasingly time-intensive as your solution grows due to the rigid reporting structure and dashboard limits. 

With Smartsheet, confidently give an overview for clients and leaders without giving access to potentially confidential information.

Safer sharing

Asana has insufficient options for dynamic and safe sharing of project data.

I am willing to forego some of the visual design benefits of Asana, for instance, in favor of the superior useability and flexibility of Smartsheet.
