Hiring is one of the most important jobs of any founder and is the key to building a great company that is positioned for long term success.  Employees are an investment and add organizational complexity and communication overhead, so it is critical that you attract and hire the right people.


SmartSuite helps you by providing templates for hiring plans, candidate interviews, job descriptions, salary ranges, new employee onboarding, employee evaluations and personnel files.

Remove Obstacles To Working Working Your Way

Arthur G

Time is a big theme for us. We’ve developed an operating rhythm to working across oceans and time zones. Our teams have an hour here or there for live conversations, but the rest of our work lives digitally. Email volumes became brutal. We started adding tools to “help”, but they just added to the noise and couldn’t fit our global needs. SmartSuite is the system that fits the way we work, where we work.

We work with patients to build customized dietary plans to address chronic health problems. Our team converted all of our paper-based recipes and nutrition information into a custom Health and Nutrition solution we built. We were able to instantly build plans for patients and track their progress during the course of service. It’s been a game changer for us, in every country we operate in.

Manage Remote Work

Theresa L.

I won’t lie. I had a hard time converting my management style to this remote work world. My team “gently” informed me that I was driving them crazy. Our work depends on getting the details right and I was barraging them with well-intentioned texts, Slacks and emails...that were actually sensory overload. I was so used to the easy chats that come with working in the same room. We implemented SmartSuite for our case management processes - just seeing all the data and being able to ask questions and add comments was a game-changer...and made my team MUCH happier.

We picked the market leader when choosing a CRM system, yet we never felt like we were getting the most out of our implementation. It was complicated and it’s not like we had dedicated sales ops resources sitting around, so we scrapped it. SmartSuite gave us a refreshing combo of simplicity and sophistication - plus we know it can adapt as our team grows and changes.
