Smartsheet Inc., a cloud-based platform for work execution, announced a secure, mobile-enabled integration with Workplace by Facebook at Facebook’s F8 developer conference. Smartsheet is among a select group of Workplace integration partners being featured at this week’s event.
“As business users shift their attention from email to chat, it’s important to provide our customers a way to drive work execution from their preferred messaging platform,” said Gene Farrell, SVP of Product, Smartsheet, who participated in a panel today at F8 alongside other featured Workplace integration partners. “We are excited to team up with Facebook to allow customers to take action in Smartsheet directly from Workplace.”
With Smartsheet for Workplace enabled, Smartsheet notifications, update and approval requests, and reminders are delivered to Workplace Chat. The recipient can then take action without leaving Workplace.
“We’re pleased to recognize Smartsheet as a leading Workplace integration partner,” said Anand Dass, Ecosystem Partner manager, Workplace by Facebook. “We share a vision of transforming how people work together across platforms by improving collaboration and decision making, enabling organizations to get more done, faster. This is a partnership with real impact for our shared users.”
Smartsheet integrates with enterprise applications from companies like Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, Atlassian, ServiceNow, Tableau, Facebook, Dropbox, and Box, making it easy for customers to incorporate Smartsheet into their existing work processes.
This is the first Smartsheet integration that uses Converse.AI Chatflow technology, which applies natural language technology to automate workflows and data exchanges.
