SPB were fantastic they understood my brief and together we put a Smartsheet together in no time at all. Even though I have  a small building surveying practice, the staff a SPB treated me like I would have imagined they treat a major multi national client.

World Vision UK

World Vision has been using Smartsheet for over two years now.  The Smartsheet and AppSheet solutions Smarter Business Processes have built for us have significantly improved the efficiency of our project management processes.  We use Smartsheet for everything from programme-level reporting to detailed work allocation.  Having a tool that provides a real-time single version of the truth across those different views has been invaluable.

We have been able to identify and mitigate capacity risks earlier and to improve compliance with the process by reporting on exceptions and escalating where necessary.

Having a tool like Smartsheet has also increased senior management’s confidence in the data that they are being supplied with, allowing for quicker and better decision-making.

Having just started a new role, being able to show my replacement the plan in Smartsheet and how we use the different reports and views has made the transition a whole lot easier.  Needless to say I have also started using Smartsheet for the same reasons in my new role!  Thank you Smarter Business Processes, I am looking forward to working with you on the next project.

Smarter Dropdown List Manager Review

As a Power user of Smartsheet and a regular Community Contributor, Smarter Business Processes asked me to review their Smarter Dropdown List Manager solution, a new service that uses the Smartsheet APIs to solve one of the Most Requested problems for Smartsheet users: namely, having one central location to update their Lists of e.g., clients, task, parts, people. Additionally, when that list is saved, to have it automatically populate as many other Smartsheets that reference that Dropdown. This would take away the pain of doing this one at a time and the risks of interruption or errors being made which affects efficiency and can cause unnecessary headaches.

I have tested this solution. It is easily set up with guidance from the SBP team. It works well and reliably does the job. I can see how this solution will be warmly welcomed by Smartsheet users at a cost which can easily be justified for many Smartsheet users.

I also like the idea that this solution can be split into Departments or Teams within larger orgs who will wish to manage their own data lists in near real time.

I also see the potential for other modifications and variations of this service using the controls that the API offers, but am very pleased with what I’ve seen so far and look forward to seeing the benefits enjoyed by the wider Smartsheet community as the application usage grows.

Thanks to SBP for letting me appraise this new solution as an early adopter for review. – Tim Meeks

Global BPO Player

Being fairly new to project management, I wasn’t making headway with Smartsheet but was keen to implement a robust tool to help my team succeed.  Richard, was able to line up an extremely high level consultant to help me over some hurdles and assist me with Smartsheet workflow demos for the various stakeholders.

I would HIGHLY recommend his services to anyone serious about coming quickly up to speed and not want to reinvent the wheel learning the hard way.

Big Al’s Family Fitness

My name is Paul Riedel and I’m the owner of a multi-club fitness chain in Long Island, New York.  About a year ago I reached out to Smarter Business Processes and Richard for some help in organizing and streamlining some of my systems through Smartsheet as well as helping me with some ideas in the process of creating those systems.  Richard has been a godsend.  He’s not only knowledgeable but he is experienced and knowledgeable and most times has a quick solution in answer to a question and when he doesn’t he goes out and does the research necessary to find the right solution.  One of the best things that we did at Big Al’s was reach out and connect to Richard and Smarter Business Processes.  Thank you Richard for all your help.

“Huge monster event all kept on track courtesy of my friends at Smarter Business Processes and by using Smartsheet.  Amazing tool!”

Brad Jacobs – Executive Event Producer, Top Rank

NHS Highland

“NHS Highland already use Smartsheet extensively to drive efficiencies in the organisation but as Head of Health and Safety, I urgently needed a solution to track and monitor the progress of our respiratory protection programme to test and face fit all our Frontline staff with Masks that protect them from common airborne diseases such as influenza.
We asked Smarter Business Processes to build us a register system using Smartsheet which they completed in very short order. We are delighted with their SmartStats solution which now provides us with the register management Process, top level Statistics and Visibility that we needed to progress this important work. Thanks to Richard and his Team for a well designed workflow solution and appropriate visibility at all levels”.

Bob Summers – Head of Health and Safety, NHS Highland

Meridian Valuations

“I happily endorse Richard Rymill of Smarter Business Processes.  I found the SmartSheet utility through a blog.  When I was unable to reduce the learning curve sufficiently, I contacted Smartsheet and they referred me to Richard.  Although there is an ocean dividing us, Richard facilitated our meetings via Skype and screen sharing.  He evaluated our needs and offered options that we thought would best suit our particular purpose.  As a result, we have been able to work more efficiently and effectively with fewer “what’s next” challenges as well as facilitating a remote workforce.  We will maintain a relationship with Richard and his team yet, as SmartSheet continues to push the envelope and we foresee it as a tool to better serve our clientele”.

Edwin P. Mysogland, CVA, CMEA, SBA, President


“Being that Smarter Business Processes was highly recommended to us by Smartsheet, I was confident that they would provide a service that would satisfy my requirements, They didn’t, they far exceeded my expectations and I can honestly say that given the short notice and urgent technical and specific requirements that I had, Richard and his team worked around their already busy schedule and outside of the standard working hours to get, what was not a straightforward job completed within scope, budget and offering further enhancements that I would not have thought to implement.

The excellent work completed will provide me with an end to end Project management system that has complete flexibility but yet rigid enough to control timelines, costs and the overall profit within a project.  I had in mind what I wanted from Smarter Business Processes when I originally spoke to Richard.  After some very interesting and head scratching conversations we came up with ideas that would meet all the needs of the project, it was not a simple task in order to make the functions work within Smartsheet but the team managed to find great workarounds and methods in order for it to work seamlessly.

All credit to a such professional,  friendly and very knowledgeable business that was a pleasure to work with. We will certainly be working more with Smarter Business Processes in the future.”

Darren Jones – Hyderus

Valle Homes

“Richard from Smarter Business Processes has worked with us over the last couple of months to both understand how we were managing our business and identify areas for immediate process improvement.  As a custom home builder and remodeller, our projects, both large and small, are extremely complex and detailed.  Managing projects, clients and staff from a variety of Excel & Word based templates was both time consuming and susceptible to error.  Richard and his team helped create a Master Project Schedule showing all projects in one place, complete with Gantt charts to aid planning decisions in the most efficient manner.

We’re delighted with how Smarter Business Processes have helped us to use our own specialist knowledge and skills to develop some very “SmartSheets.”  The new platform helps us focus on our clients and move away from multiple excel sheets and project plans that consumed our management time, and we have only begun to scratch the surface of Smartsheets’ capabilities. We highly recommend Smarter Business Processes and their methodology of close collaboration, mutual discovery and training.  We are now very competent Smartsheet users and enthusiasts”.

Rich Effler – Owner – Valle Homes

NHS Highland

“I manage a busy NHS health and safety service across the Highlands of Scotland. The sites and services are diverse as is the geography and “reaching out” to managers and getting actions updated and tracked is very challenging.

Our team urgently needed a planning and collaboration system that would improve communications and progress feedback across a this huge geographical area of Scotland and we were all maxed out on Excel Spreadsheets, Project etc – too complicated, lots of duplication and time consuming.

Richard delivered a two day Smartsheet Discovery and training session to our corporate health and safety and Estates team, then worked individually with each department, Estates, Administration and Health and Safety to make sure that each delegate finished the two days with immediately workable solutions that they could share with their own teams.

In Health and Safety, we rolled out Smartsheet to all our regional HS managers who were as enthused as we expected at being able to get work done faster and more efficiently, so Richard returned for a further day and delivered the Smartsheet Discovery and training session for all my  team then helped each of them to build specific solutions that they needed to integrate with our overall strategy.

Discovering new ways of working with Smarter Processes has further inspired my team to develop new ideas, and help our geographically dispersed managers to deliver and manage Health and Safety more effectively and simply

We strongly recommend both the Smartsheet system and Richard Rymill as the lead consultant to help large organisations that are currently heavy users of spreadsheets to book your own Smartsheet Discovery and optimisation training day, you won’t be disappointed

Bob Summers – Head of Health & Safety, NHS Highland

“At the Yorkshire Mafia we have been using Smartsheet to plan our events such as Buy Yorkshire and are very pleased with how it has helped us to Plan and Collaborate more easily.  Following a Smartsheet Optimisation session with Richard, we can now see even more ways to use this excellent system.  I can recommend Smartsheet and Richard’s help with implementing its use to Mafia members and business alike.  For those that habitually use Spreadsheet for planning, Smartsheet is a terrific improvement.”

– Ruth Taylor Business Development Manager – The Yorkshire Mafia

“As incredibly busy event organisers, we need clear visibility on tasks, who’s doing what and when etc and Smartsheet is perfect for that. Richard came to our offices with a great plan for showing us some of the basics of Smartsheet, some great short cuts to make our lives easier and talk us through specific issues that we needed help with.
