Reason Number Two: Rapid Startup

What is one of the best aspects of Wdesk? The rapid startup. Wdesk requires little training and no IT setup to get running. Our customers gain control of their business reporting process and save both time and money almost immediately. We have numerous examples of real customers who utilized this rapid startup to make quick changes and still file on time.

Wdesk provides immediate benefits.

In one case, an external reporting customer began using Wdesk during her filing cycle after her financial printer said the filings would have to be late. Not only did this company file its 10-Q five days early with Wdesk, but it did so after first approaching us 10 days after the quarter closed.

Wdesk gains users valuable time.

A funds reporting customer filed 11 days early after switching to Wdesk—seven days earlier than ever before. This company finally did away with crunch time, and employees now have nights and weekends to spend with family during filing season.

Wdesk is easy to use.

Another external reporting customer had a rough filing season, with its key team member on maternity leave, and other team members moving around into different roles. This was the optimal time for this customer to switch to Wdesk, and with support from Customer Success Managers, the new team was brought up to speed quickly with minimal training, and filed its first filing with ease. Wdesk was easy to scale for this customer, and the team members loved that they could access their filings from anywhere

These, and so many other customers, switched to Wdesk and began using it from the very first day, only needing a 90-minute training session to get up and running. What's the best part about implementing Wdesk? It saves you time and money.
