The Intelligent Approach to Integrated Risk

  • Our internal audit team is more valuable if it can do work outside of SOX. Not only is it more enriching for those doing the work, but overall, it's a benefit to the entire organization.

  • We’ve seen a big improvement in collaboration with our external auditors. They can now see our changes and have greater confidence in our controls because everything is linked.

  • Wdesk gives our management team the comfort and transparency that their internal controls are in place, tested, and no material weaknesses are present for sign-off.

  • We were able to set up a risk control matrix in Wdesk, so each control owner was clear about the control and the risk associated with that control. We’re a lot more efficient. It looks better, it gives us a better process and it’s a lot easier to visualize what we're doing because it’s there in front of you.

  • The data transparency provided by Wdesk enables my team to more efficiently and accurately complete reporting and better support Upland's stakeholders.
