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.

The benefits of Smarter Launch Pad

Finding one tool to set up all the assets for a new project can make the difference between a well run and successful project and one that is not. This is that clever portal.

Using Smarter Launch Pad you can create and name the sheets, reports and dashboards using Project specific data already stored.

Using Smarter Launch Pad Assets are triggered automatically therefore relieving bottlenecks in processes waiting for the PM to run their admin tasks.

Smarter Launch Pad creates hyperlinks to the newly created assets immediately for easy navigation.  These hyperlinks can be seen immediately on dashboards which saves time and eliminates potential for human error when manually grabbing sheet links.

  • Typically these are a combination of a Gantt Sheet, a RAID log, a Charter and a Dashboard for visibility.
  • They all need naming (consistently)
  • They all need linking to tracker sheets / dashboard metrics
  • Setting these up manually requires time, concentration and a keen eye for detail and a dedicated administrator

How Does Smarter Launch Pad bring automation?

  • Linking project data from the tracking sheet into the newly created assets
