25% of Wdesk customers started with a 10-K

November 13, 2014

Did you know that 25% of Wdesk customers started with their 10-K? You can too. Here are three reasons to start with a K.

  1. World-class customer service
    As a Wdesk customer, you'll work with your very own Customer Success Manager. Your CSM is there with you all the way from onboarding through filing—as the one person you can call anytime.

    They have provided THE BEST customer service I have ever received from any service provider. I truly do feel that we are part of a close team working toward a common goal. It doesn't matter if it's a weekday, weekend, or 11:30 at night—they're there to help.

  2. Easy implementation
    Wdesk has an intuitive interface that's a natural transition from other traditional desktop applications. Get up and running in about a week, with no IT involvement. Your transition to Wdesk is supported by live training for all members of your team. Leverage continuing education materials from the Wdesk Help Site, Community, and University to build new skills.

    A lot of other software companies just send out a memo saying ‘We’ve changed these ten things.' But they don’t show you how to do them in the software. During webinars, Workiva actually shows me where they’re clicking and what they’re doing. It’s a lot better.

  3. Dedication to your XBRL success
    Our team of U.S.-based Professional Service Managers are ready to support your XBRL needs. From full-service to DIY, and anywhere in between, we have the in-house expertise to ensure your filing is on time and accurate.

    I think it’s smart to start with the 10-K because then all your tagging and footnotes are done.

    Wdesk is the primary contributor to Arelle, an open-source XBRL validation platform. Arelle provides an XBRL validation engine, which is used by Wdesk and also by the SEC to validate all XBRL filings. You can be sure that validation errors from Wdesk will be consistent with errors detected by the SEC.
And the work you do on your 10-K now will carry over to your 10-Qs. Companies that go through the heavy lifting in their 10-Ks have only realized greater time savings leading into the next quarter filing. Read about one company's success here.
