- Why Wdesk
American Assets Trust Testimonial
John Spelta: The Wdesk product is just going to be a revolutionary concept that's finally taking hold. I think it's going to take on and I'm happy to be a part of it. It makes my experience at work much more enjoyable, because I'm not just focused on filing documents with the SEC. I get to be involved with more things at work.
What made it much easier with Wdesk is that when you put the change in, it went throughout the whole document. So even when we were working with Wdesk and the printer simultaneously, there came a point where we had submitted to the printer.
Well, any change that we had put through, it went to Wdesk, and then we had to also submit the change to the printer. So we got to see firsthand how much easier it was to get the change in, to put the change through Wdesk, how it went through the product versus submitting it to the printer via email or whatever markup the document's submitting it waiting for the change to come back.
What complicated it even more was the XBRL portion of it and where we understood with Wdesk that, once the change went through, then XBRL could be changed just as quick. Basically, the pencils down period was eliminated.
Our Customer Service Manager, he became part of the team basically and having him work with us to get it all done. Yes, I would very much recommend WebFilings and the Wdesk software.
