More and more public companies are discovering what hundreds already know: that it is possible to save time and money and maintain control of the SEC filing process using SEC reporting software from Workiva. What you may not know is that you can obtain those same benefits as a part of your proxy statement creation process as well.

Workiva fully supports SEC Form Type DEF 14A, in addition to other supported form types, and allows companies to create, edit, manage and file their proxy statements. If you are already using Workiva for your external reporting, it's a breeze to link your existing financial data (including director and officer compensation information) to your proxy statements, ensuring that your numbers are always in sync across all of your reports. Even if you are not yet using Workiva for your external reporting, using our application for your proxy statements will:

  • Eliminate complex merge and version control issues with sophisticated collaboration features that allow cross-functional teams, both large and small, to edit the proxy statement at the same time
  • Save time with user-friendly tables and advanced linking features that simplify editing and prevent the need to re-key financial and compensation information
  • Gain control through the use of workbooks and permissions to capture and link financial data from other areas of your business, such as HR
  • Avoid last-minute editing costs with instant EDGARization
  • Provide transparency throughout the drafting process with revision history and integrated commenting in a single, controlled environment that includes a complete audit trail
  • Ensure you are prepared for future XBRL® mandates. Workiva includes easy-to-use, in-context XBRL tagging that takes into account new mandates 

The Workiva solution for SEC reporting is helping companies like this one reduce the time and cost associated with proxy statements and SEC reporting processes. See Workiva for yourself. Request a demo, and we'll take it from there.
