MySQL or SQL with Smartsheet and Appsheet

At Smarter Business Processes we understand why SQL is so popular with our clients. It’s powerful, versatile and reliable.  Whether you’re using MySQL, SQL Server or any other relational database, navigating and reporting your ever-expanding data sets is essential to keep your business flowing smoothly. SQL when integrated with Smartsheet and Appsheet delivers even more powerful data.

SQL: Why We Love SQL with Smartsheet

Understanding about SQL with Smartsheet and Appsheet, enables you to understand the great potential for these tools used in combination. The power is in the connection, and the ability Smartsheet gives you to gain visibility of the data, and tailored access for your team to the reports and for input, both online and off.

For that you must connect the enterprise database and SQL with Smartsheet. Unfortunately, this is often easier said than done.

We often hear from our clients about their frustrations as they struggle to transform the information on SQL databases into usable dashboards and workflows. For example you may have invested in an expensive ERP system with an SQL back end but that vital data may simply not be as accessible as you need it to be to make informed decisions in a business context.

This makes integrating SQL with Smartsheet and Appsheet all the more important. And that’s where we come in.

Smartsheet Consultants at Smarter Business Processes

At Smarter Business Processes we are experienced Smartsheet consultants skilled at helping our customers leverage data using tailored reports, from their relational databases, and ERP Systems.

We can also help you to build Smarter Dashboards to suit your organisation and individual project teams. In order to do this we support by creating dashboards that benefit from the integration between SQL with Smartsheet. The dashboards offer data visibility, with tailored reporting for inform timely decision making.

Data visibility with Smartsheet

Smartsheet is a powerful tool that gives data visibility across your organisation. The way to maximise the advantage of the agility of Smartsheet and its various features and functions is to connect your SQL with Smartsheet.

SQL with Smartsheet

Connecting SQL with Smartsheet and Appsheet is what we do

Whatever smart sheet you are working in, we at SBP love coming up with automated solutions that link to SQL with Smartsheet and Appsheet. You benefit from data integrity, data comes from your main database source, and from accessibility with the tools giving you direct insight into your data.  

For example, using an API connection, Smartsheet can connect directly to SQL, enabling it to read data, display it, even write new data back to SQL, ensuring both datasets stay in perfect sync.  

What challenges are you facing regarding SQL with Smartsheet and Appsheet?

Out on site and off line? Not a problem.

Working underground? No worries.

Need your users to only see data they have permission for? Leave it to us. We have the experience and the expertise to link Appsheet to SQL in a way that is tailored to you. 

Maybe you need the dashboards, graphs and spreadsheets that Smartsheet or Smarter Dashboards delivers. However you choose to present or display your SQL data, we can ensure it is live, synched and working hard for you. 

You’d be forgiven for expecting our solutions to be costly and time consuming to set up. But our consultants can build you what you need in days not months, more cheaply than you might expect. What you do with it is up to you.
