Build on company culture through authentic digital connections between employees and teams. With everything you need in one platform, collaboration happens where the work is getting done.
Work Is More Fun With A Collaborative Team
Building Culture Where
Your Employees Are
Here’s a novel idea: have conversations about the work happening in the same place where the actual work is being done. Mind. Blown.
We know culture isn’t just a physical thing anymore - it’s a where you are kind of thing. With SmartSuite, you don’t have to force or train collaboration. It’s a natural extension of the software. Culture happens when Stoyan from Serbia and Sarah from Sacramento can seamlessly connect and collaborate.
Where the Work Happens
Start and continue conversations in records to discuss content right where the work is happening - no tab switching, logging in, alt-tabbing, or other toggling required. We’re sorry to all the tab collectors out there, but 20+ open is just too dang many.
Keep Your Team
Use @mentions to give a teammate a little friendly nudge or bring them into a collaborative discussion. It's also great for bringing them into a discussion or simply drawing attention to important work. You can also shout out team members the same way. Everyone deserves a ⭐ for a job well done!
Every @mentions appears in the members' Notification Center so it's easy to stay up-to-date.
Building Team Bonds With Member Directory
Connect with team members through the Member Directory, see who’s online, check out their interests and skills, and reach out no matter where they’re working.
Team members create personal profiles, sharing information about themselves with other members. No more awkward icebreakers, just connection.
Find the perfect collaborator to take your project from great to perfection *chef’s kiss*. And don’t forget to celebrate others by getting notifications of birthdays and work anniversaries!

The Activity History feature provides a real-time stream of the work being done within your account. Team members are able to view activity streams for specific processes or projects to understand what work items are being updated and the date and time of the updates. Bosses and managers no longer need to send those annoying “what’s the status of XX” messages - it’s all in the system for them to see!
With real-time updates, multiple members of your team can view and edit shared content in SmartSuite at the same time, while also seeing where other team members are in the record working. Stop waiting for someone else to finish updating their info - you’ll always be working on the latest version. That’s how teamwork makes the dream work.
Collaboration on the go is a natural part of SmartSuite’s mobile application. That powerful little computer in your pocket is your ticket to connectivity with your team.

Don’t be a stranger! Members can create personal profiles, sharing information about themselves with other members. No more awkward icebreakers.
