Joe Wakham: Well I guess the tipping point for me was when I was open enough to look at a demo. That happened late January of a filing season and the former product is thinking, thinking, thinking, thinking. I go to lunch, I come back, it's thinking, thinking and finally it stops thinking and I get a white screen with a big red 'X'. That was enough for me.
At that point I said "Late January and I'm having to deal with this." I actually lost a week's worth of data. So I got an email and I see this WebFilings, "What is that?" I saw a demo and that did it. Once I saw the demo I was ready.
The first way I knew that something was we had previously been asked to sign a 3-year subscription so I said "What term of the contract?" He said, "Well, you pay for a quarter you get a quarter." So I immediately thought "Well that means that WebFilings will continue to be working hard to earn my business each quarter because they know I can just leave and go somewhere else."
In terms of my process, the application affected XBRL exponentially. It was incredibly important in terms of the way it streamlined my process for tagging and improved the document dramatically. It used to be that each quarter of that filing season was a significant drain on me emotionally from the stress of "Is it going to work? Is the document going to maintain integrity?" It was a full four to six weeks of really intense audit, over the weekends and that has changed dramatically. The whole ease of the process has dramatically changed.
When I look here at the conference at the different solutions and really dig in to what opportunities there are, I don't have to question whether or not my recommendation is going to be well-received. You won't regret going with WebFilings. My experience has been completely positive. I haven't worked with anyone, any other vendor or anything that felt so committed to my success.
Almost every time I login it seems, it notifies me that there are new features. That's reassuring to know that the application isn't static, it's always improving. Now my experience with the previous vendor positions me to appreciate WebFilings better than someone who hasn't.
I do recommend WebFilings to anyone that will listen.
