Cindy LaChance, Manager of Financial Controls and Compliance at Advance Auto Parts, raves about how Wdesk improved her quarterly SOX certification process. Positive gains spread from everyday users up to senior management.

Advance Auto Parts uses Wdesk to improve the quality and control over its SOX documentation and certification, ultimately creating a more efficient process by eliminating version control issues. Upper management loves that it can quickly log in, review, and certify SOX documents. Since all certifications live in the application, Cindy no longer needs to wrangle dozens of printed copies each quarter. Now, all the pieces of SOX certification come together like a well-oiled machine.

Ultimately, Wdesk works for Advance Auto Parts because users can mold the application to fit the company's needs, not the other way around. Such versatility plays a pivotal role in her process. She says, "If I didn't have Wdesk, I wouldn't be able to do my job."
