Smartsheet is a cloud-based platform that enables teams to collaborate, manage projects, and automate work. It is used by more than 90% of the Fortune 100 companies to manage their projects, tasks, and workflows. While Smartsheet is a great tool for project management, it may not be suitable for strategic portfolio management.
OnePlan, on the other hand, is a Strategic Portfolio Management platform that helps organizations of all sizes to manage their portfolios, programs, and projects. With OnePlan, you can create and manage your portfolio of projects, track your progress, and collaborate with your team members in real-time.
