Extends Leadership Position in Fast-Growing Collaborative Work Management Category
Smartsheet , a leading cloud-based platform for work execution, announced that it has acquired 10,000ft, a SaaS platform that enables organizations to improve decision making and forecasting through real-time capacity planning, resource management, and reporting.
“10,000ft was designed to help organizations make more confident operational decisions across their portfolio of work. Those could be decisions about who is best suited to work on a specific initiative, what pipeline projects need staffing or the forecast for hiring”
“Effective resource management is a mission critical need for many organizations today, yet most tools specializing in capacity planning are overly complex and costly to manage,” said Mark Mader, CEO of Smartsheet. “10,000ft offers a unique combination of enterprise-grade functionality with simplicity and ease-of-use, aligning with our vision to empower everyone to more effectively plan, track, automate, and report on work.”

“10,000ft was designed to help organizations make more confident operational decisions across their portfolio of work.

In addition, 10,000ft’s technology significantly strengthens Smartsheet’s value proposition for customers in the marketing and professional services segments and complements Smartsheet’s content collaboration technology (digital asset proofing and mark-up) acquired via the acquisition of Slope in January 2019.
