Smartsheet Recognized for Technology Innovation and Vision with 451 Research Firestarter Award

Named the “pioneer in work management software” by leading analyst

BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Smartsheet Inc. (NYSE: SMAR), a leading cloud-based platform for work
execution, today announced that it has been named a 451 Firestarter by
industry analyst firm 451 Research in recognition of its exceptional
technology innovation.

The exclusively analyst-led 451 Firestarter program allows 451
Research’s technology and market experts to nominate organizations it
believes are meaningfully contributing to the overall pace and extent of
innovation in the market. This is the inaugural edition of the award.

“451 Research built its reputation on helping clients understand
innovation in the technology industry, and the 451 Firestarter program
is a further demonstration of this,” said Chris Marsh, Research Director
for 451 Research. “Smartsheet is a pioneer of work management software
and an ideal 451 Firestarter. Its highly flexible platform supports
thousands of use cases for work execution by non-technical users, which,
along with a deployment model allowing for unlimited collaborators, has
led to viral adoption within a growing list of enterprise organizations.”

This recognition for the Smartsheet platform follows the announcement at
the company’s ENGAGE global customer conference earlier this month of
more than twenty product enhancements designed to help organizations
improve how they work, including a redesigned workflow engine and
enhanced mobile applications.

“We’re thrilled to receive this 451 Firestarter award from 451 Research,
an organization that understands the dynamic, rapidly growing work
management category as well as anyone,” said Mark Mader, CEO of
Smartsheet. “This award recognizes that our focus on the type of
innovation that empowers everyone to more effectively plan, track,
automate, and report on work, regardless of technical skill level, makes
Smartsheet a true category disruptor.”
