Smarter Launch Pad
Smarter Launch pad with affordable smart benefits
Smarter Launch Pad is an affordable alternative to Smartsheet’s Control Center. It’s a quick and reliable way to spin up new assets such as project management sheets & dashboards, staff on boarding tracking data, order intake and execution sheets and data. In fact anything that can be set up in templates, can be automated to generate the full range of Smartsheet assets to streamline and embed smarter business processes.
Smarter Launch Pad is not as powerful as Control Center, and yet many users are happy with the functionality offered, especially when the cost can be as little as 10% of the alternative. Plus we don’t charge any extra for using multiple templates.
Simply start with a sheet of summary information, receive & approve the work request and Smarter Launch Pad will create and link a new set of Smartsheet assets based on your pre-defined templates. We make your launches easy to use and the benefits affordable.
