STARTUPS & INNOVATIONS: SmartSuite Launches

 LAUNCH

Newport Beach tech veteran Jon Darbyshire announced the launch of SmartSuite, a new work management software offering.

The announcement comes after two years of development and an $11 million “self-funded” initial investment in the SAAS platform, Darbyshire said.

“We founded SmartSuite to address the inefficiencies we see in how teams work together, with team members using a patchwork of disconnected apps, emails and spreadsheets to manage how they plan and manage work each day. Our goal is to turn the traditional software paradigm upside down,” Darbyshire said in a statement. 

“SmartSuite provides a work management platform that unites the essential elements that are used in getting work done—databases, spreadsheets, documents, collaboration tools, file management products and automation capabilities—into one platform.”

SmartSuite can serve teams of up to 5,000 and provide more than 200 pre-built templates for project management, sales, marketing, and software development, according to the company.

SmartSuite was founded by three veteran software execs, along with a team of 100 developers, who previously founded enterprise governance risk compliance software firm Archer Technologies, now used by 75% of the Fortune 100 today, the company said.
