KEXP is a Seattle-based entertainment network with listeners around the world (and even in space!). With 40 seasoned DJs, inventive musicians both indie and established, and a focus on providing an enriching experience as a non-profit, they have a big mission and all the tools to achieve it.
KEXP recognized right away that being “just a radio station” wasn’t going to work long-term in a world of streaming entertainment. As early as 2000 they offered high quality Internet radio, and as a result have grown their listeners by 300% over the last 15 years while other radio stations have dwindled. They built strategic partnerships with organizations like Radio New York to produce shows coast to coast, and more recently have signed a long term agreement with the University of Washington to continue championing artists, serving the public, and furthering the cause of musical arts over the airwaves and online for the foreseeable future.
What’s the common thread? KEXP knows how to plan ahead and manage work on the fly. That’s why they choose Smartsheet.
South Water Signs manages custom-made signage projects nationwide--a massive exercise in coordination, traditionally managed on paper or with Excel spreadsheets and email. As the company's business grew, it became clear that this manual process wasn’t scalable. That’s when South Water Signs turned to Smartsheet. Customer projects are now streamlined. Sales reps collect all the necessary data – package, type of sign, type of service, etc. – using a web form that feeds into a master sheet of all jobs. A project manager then uses the sheet to keep information like photos, permits, and approvals organized and stored in the context of work timelines. A custom report pulls all the necessary information to create an invoice for works in progress and the report is automatically sent to accounting. It's a seamless and transparent process that delights customers and makes South Water Signs a leader in its industry.

Portland Oregon-based SERA Architects blends two traditions into its architecture service--urban revitalization and sustainable design. Not only does the firm embrace a corporate philosophy to operate as green as possible, it provides guidance and expertise in a wide range of environmental issues that extend well beyond green building.
In 2006, SERA Architects teamed with Cutler Anderson Architects and was selected for what would become one of the largest federal government building renovation projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Located in downtown Portland Oregon, The Edith Green/Wendell Wyatt Federal Building (EGWW) it is to become a flagship building for the federal government. It is comprised of an eighteen-story office tower, which occupies one full city block and two levels of basement and parking areas. Upon its completion in 2013, it will house about 17 different federal agencies.
