Video: SharePoint vs Smartsheet
Last updated: April 28, 2018
SharePoint's multi-purpose platform allows for managing and provisioning of intranet portals, extranets and websites, document management and file management, collaboration spaces, social networking tools, enterprise search, business intelligence tooling, process/information integration, and third-party developed solutions. SharePoint can also be used as a web application development platform. SharePoint alternatives for small business are: Office 365, Box, G Suite, Zoho. There are also free open-source alternatives to Sharepoint - Alfresco, Nuxeo, Liferay Portal.
Smartsheet is an online project management and crowdsourcing tool. It allows owners of information to comprehensively involve contributors through authenticated access, publicly-accessible published sheets, or via embeddable survey forms. Functionality is focused on the ability to organize, share, and update tasks and files. Smartsheet free alternatives are Asana and Trello.
Face to face in the news:
2014 - Smartsheet helps companies to visualize their teamwork. Beware SharePoint
Smartsheet, the spreadsheet-based project and work management platform, is now making it easier for companies to understand how their employees actually work and to get better visibility into what’s happening in their companies. Ideally, that means tracking all the different projects and people involved in them in a company. With Smartsheet Account Maps you can see who runs most of the projects in a group, for example (which is great for when you ask for a raise) or who doesn’t (which isn’t so great when it’s time for your annual report). But you can also see the connections between different groups. By default, Smartsheet makes a basic map available to all users.
