Change is Good for Tupperware Brands

May 15, 2012
We've all heard the old adage that "change is good"...however sometimes this is easier said than done. Financial reporting executives are constantly faced with pressure related to annual and quarterly SEC reporting, as well as the unanticipated reporting required by the everyday ebb and flow of business. Making a large change in this dynamic environment, such as replacing a public company's external reporting solution, could be viewed by some as risky and a catalyst for additional problems. **Not so says Trista Muse, Manager, Investor Relations and Financial Reporting at Tupperware Brands.** One week into the close of their first quarter, circumstances prompted them to look for a better way to file their reports. They made the decision to streamline their filing process and switched to Wdesk. Getting started was easy for the Tupperware Brands financial team. "Our training was phenomenal," remembers Muse. "We gathered up our data and files and with the help of a WebFilings Customer Success Manager, we were up and running in about three days." The Tupperware team found it helpful to have a dedicated Customer Success Manager who was always a phone call away to assure the transition from their old filing process to the new streamlined application was seamless. Despite the fact that Tupperware Brands changed reporting solutions during the last week in the quarter, Muse can enthusiastically report they still filed on the same scheduled day. "I would certainly recommend WebFilings to a professional peer, and I have, because of the customer service." After using the Wdesk solution for multiple filings, Tupperware Brands would add ease of XBRL filing and control to the list of reasons they are WebFilings fans.
