NHS north-west region switches Excel and PowerPoint for Smartsheet project platform

NHS England has deployed Smartsheet‘s enterprise platform to accelerate its digital-first primary care initiatives in its North-West region.

The platform is helping simplify some 87 projects with 40 different project owner-managers, Smartsheet said in an announcement.

Stewart Cooper, senior programme consultant at NHS, said that switching to Smartsheet has made it easier to spot when a project is running late or in danger.

“We can identify the situation in real time, make the necessary adjustments, and stay on track,” Cooper says. “The simplicity of Smartsheet made it easy for all of our project managers to on-board and understand the solution immediately.”

According to Smartsheet, the platform enables the NHS region to ditch Excel and PowerPoint, reducing manual tasks while eliminating siloed processes and streamlining its digital transformation.

Chris Russ, director of Smartsheet channel partner Russ Consulting, said the insights Smartsheet is enabling are critical for public-sector organisations such as the NHS.

“With greater accuracy, their team was able to mitigate risk more effectively and in return drive more positive outcomes for their patients,” Russ said.

According to Smartsheet, the team previously used Excel spreadsheets to manage projects and capture data and PowerPoint to report on success metrics.

With Excel and PowerPoint, those tasks had proven “extremely labour-intensive” with sometimes “inaccurate” results, the vendor said.
