The following is an excerpt from the article titled, Special Olympics Inc. Partners with Smartsheet to Unlock Collaboration, Helping Them Achieve More for Athletes Across the Globe published on finance.yahoo.com.
Special Olympics provides year-round sports, health, education and community building to 5.7 million people with intellectual disabilities in 200 countries. Prior to using Smartsheet, teams at SOI managed their work using a combination of spreadsheets and email, which caused silos and inefficiencies. They needed to standardize their approach to project management to collaborate across departments and time zones more effectively.
Today, more than 80 percent of SOI teams use Smartsheet to manage their work and plan events. Since implementing Smartsheet, SOI improved collaboration and transparency across departments and teams, helping reduce duplicative processes and creating significant time savings. For example, multiple teams saved approximately 45 hours a month by combining siloed project workstreams in Smartsheet.
