Atturra has been a Smartsheet partner since 2019 and in the last three years, both organisations have seen tremendous growth in the APAC region. Having won the Smartsheet APAC Partner of the Year Award for 2021, Atturra has grown its Smartsheet team by over 250 per cent over the past 12 years. While continuing to win net-new logos for Smartsheet in Australia, Atturra has also expanded the practice into New Zealand. In the last 12 months, Atturra has increased its Smartsheet revenue by over 400 per cent, delivering professional services, solutions, and bespoke training sessions.
Jason Frost, Executive General Manager, Atturra Data & Integration commented, “Our Data and Integration business alone has worked with over 400 Australian clients and that makes it possible for us to take Smartsheet’s PPM (Project and Portfolio Management) and PMO (Project Management Office) capabilities to the market. We have built this practice ground up with a small, eclectic list of partners that we believe in. That’s why our customers and partners trust us for providing the right solutions and services across all stages of their enterprise data.”
Thousands of customers attended Smartsheet ENGAGE where they were able to learn through over 50 interactive booths and access one-on-one time with Smartsheet experts for coaching and real-time solution building.
During the event, Smartsheet also introduced their newly enhanced channel program focused on rewarding partners for deeper platform investments. Starting in February 2023, the Smartsheet Aligned program will recognise and reward over 800 global partners with tailored benefits allowing them to differentiate their value-add and promote the extensive investments they have made in Smartsheet.
“The evolving nature of the channel ecosystem, combined with the increasing complexity of customer needs, is blurring traditional partner types and roles. We rely on our partners’ sector and regional expertise to not only reach a diverse range of potential customers, but to provide valuable consultancy,” said Mads Nielsen, Regional Channel Leader, APJ, Smartsheet.
“The next phase of the Smartsheet Aligned program will have a two-fold benefit for us. It will boost Smartsheet’s presence in Australia and New Zealand while also improving the quality of Smartsheet’s relationship with the partners, and in turn, their clients. As Smartsheet’s biggest partner in the region, we’re really excited about the sales, marketing, and engagement possibilities that this opens up. Can’t wait to try it out!”, said Iain Elliott, Chief Technology Officer at Atturra Data & Integration.
