Meredith Eliminates Version Control Issues with Wdesk

 

Transcript

Because I work with both IR and financial reporting, I do a lot. And Wdesk actually allows us to be able to work on it anywhere—you don't have to take a flash drive with you or log into the server or through all of our security. That's a very nice feature.

And it's real time, so we don't have version control issues. When we were drafting outside the system, we had some version control issues. Somebody would draft something, and somebody else was drafting something at the same time, and not all the changes got in there.

And actually drafting in Wdesk helped us a lot with version control. It's the single source of truth. This is where everybody's documenting it. This is the real-time document. And as soon as the books are closed, I can hit a button, and it is all very fresh, so it gives us extra time to craft those messages.

And, it also gives senior management more time to take a look at the documents, see what we've done, and provide feedback, so that they are more engaged in the message development.
