The university, unified.

Smartsheet is a single platform that connects your entire college or university. Smartsheet is the only platform that enables specific departments, schools, and teams to work their way while meeting the security, scalability, and integrations requirements of IT leaders looking to simplify and update core campus technology.
Academia is not like the business world in that it’s not very directive...The adoption of Smartsheet was very grassroots [which is] evidence of a great product that’s just a good fit for what we need to do.

Tim Jacks, Ph.D. Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
