Company Continues Rapid Innovation Bringing Plant-Based Products to the Masses
BELLEVUE, Wash., July 29, 2020 — Smartsheet (NYSE:SMAR), the enterprise platform for dynamic work, today announced Laird Superfood, maker of assorted superfood products, selected Smartsheet to drive strategic company growth through increased collaboration, transparency, and visibility on a global scale.
With employees, partners, vendors and retailers across the globe, Laird Superfood needed a platform that could fuel business growth through data and connect their team to the right information, at the right time, no matter their location. As a brand that grew from ten to over 100 employees in only two years, not only did the platform need to grow alongside the team but Laird Superfood required a flexible solution that streamlined communication across sales, manufacturing, sourcing, and development to keep up with product demand.
“Smartsheet’s intuitive platform allowed us to quickly onboard, innovate processes and see results almost immediately,” said Luan Pham, Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer of Laird Superfood. “Smartsheet not only helps us consistently reach and exceed our goals, but it has helped us set new goals as a team: Our Ohana. The Laird Superfood journey is about building a foundation for success and then making it last for generations to come.”
Prior to Smartsheet, departments were working in a vacuum which resulted in miscommunication and created disadvantages which could be catastrophic in the fast-paced food industry. Today, Laird Superfood leverages Smartsheet to streamline all aspects of their project management process with key stakeholders across one platform. This has resulted in visibility across the entire organization in a quick and cost-effective manner that has resulted in double digit growth for their business. The Laird Superfood team can also more easily report on business performance through an all-up view across all operations, whether it’s for the founders, CEO or board.
“Laird Superfood is a true innovator in their industry and embodies the ‘can do’ spirit. Their mission is not only to provide only the best for their customers but it’s clear this is what continues to fuel their rapid business growth,” said Anna Griffin, Chief Marketing Officer at Smartsheet. “Rapid growth requires a platform that is adaptable, flexible, and can be used whenever and wherever needed, and we’re proud to be the platform that powers this team and their journey.”
