“We are pleased to ring The Closing Bell® as an important milestone in our company’s history,” said Matt Rizai, Chairman and CEO of Workiva. “We think the NYSE has become the premier marketplace for growing technology companies, and we look forward to a great future on the exchange.”
Workiva, which today announced that its customers now include more than 65 percent of Fortune 500 companies, returns to the NYSE nearly a month after it began publicly trading on December 12, 2014. The event will be broadcast live on https://www.nyse.com/bell.
Workiva announced other recent accomplishments, including expanded mobile capabilities, partnerships and an award.
- In late 2014, Workiva expanded Wdesk Mobile for Android™ use in addition to iPad® availability. New features also include enhanced collaboration and an improved interface. Wdesk Mobile is a cross-platform viewer for executives to efficiently review business data and documents in a secure environment.
- In December, Workiva formed two strategic technology partnerships that allow Wdesk users to efficiently create Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) sustainability reports. To support these partnerships, Workiva released its Sustainability Factbook, which is a central repository for Wdesk users to manage structured and unstructured sustainability data. The Factbook automates processes and enables users to increase assessment frequency, thereby improving data transparency and resource management. The Factbook also allows for direct data import from utility providers, which streamlines data management and reporting.
- Workiva was recently recognized by CIO Review magazine as one of the 20 Most Promising Compliance Technology Providers in 2014.
