Wdesk brings business continuity to HSN, Inc.

Wdesk brings business continuity to HSN, Inc.
June 30, 2015

For the financial reporting team at HSN, Inc., it all started with XBRL for 10-Qs and 10-Ks.

At first, the team continued to draft filings using Word® and Excel®.

But it didn't take long for Wdesk to exceed expectations, and Joy Malivuk, OVP of Financial Reporting, soon expanded her use of the platform to include drafting of filings. "It was a much more seamless process," she says.

Wdesk also helped HSN, Inc. in its business continuity and disaster recovery plans. Although the company is based in Florida, a prime hurricane zone, it never has to worry about losing work due to servers going down. With Wdesk, information is always accessible as long as there's access to an internet connection.

"I would definitely recommend Wdesk to my peers, a family member, or a friend," says Joy.
