Meredith Corporation Worries Less about Change

November 12, 2012

The SEC reporting team at Meredith Corporation was faced with finding an alternative Section 16 reporting solution after their software provider increased rates. Having previous success with Wdesk External Reporting Solution, Terry Rinker, Senior Legal Assistant, and her team were ready to be a Section 16 beta tester.

WebFilings world-class Customer Success team guided Rinker through this major change.

WebFilings customer service is beyond compare. My CSM walked me through the application. He was very reassuring and knowledgeable, and offered anything I needed to get started.

Terry Rinker has gained time and confidence in switching to WebFilings Section 16. Before, a single report required one and a half hours of Rinker's valuable time to produce, but with Wdesk, the process takes only about 10 minutes. As Rinker says, “Wdesk is a huge time saver.”

In Rinker's experience, footnotes, batch filing, and the validation process that double checks numbers provides reassurance that each report is complete and accurate.
