Smartsheet partners with cloud companies to launch QuickStart Bundle for Office 365

Smartsheet has teamed up with several other cloud vendors to launch QuickStart Bundle for Office 365. This brings together Smartsheet, Insightly, Xero, Skykick and BetterCloud in an effort to demystify cloud services for business users.

Unveiled at Microsoft’s World Partner Conference in Orlando, this suite of cloud-friendly apps supports Microsoft’s efforts to accelerate discovery and use of cloud apps.

For businesses, the bundle is designed to offer a clear path for transitioning processes and workflows to the cloud using software that is guaranteed to work well with Office 365.

Used by more than 65,000 companies in 170 countries, Smartsheet promises customers a seamless experience via its Smartsheet for Outlook app and single sign-on with Azure Active Directory.

The bundle also includes the following products:

Insightly – A CRM platform for managing leads, contacts, proposals, projects, tasks and files

Xero  – Cloud accounting software for small businesses to manage invoicing, bank reconciliation, bookkeeping and more

Skykick – New category of management products that let IT partners migrate, back up and centrally manage data and services for cloud products

BetterCloud – Platform used to automate management and data security for cloud office apps

Each company’s products will be bundled together as a single SKU and will be available from reseller partners later this year.
