  • The next thing we started using Wdesk for was our Annual Statement footnotes. Depending on which reporting cycle it is, we can go in, make quick updates, input our data, and instead of having to reformat everything, it’s all there for us—and it looks nice.

  • You don’t have to worry about merging or keeping the document up-to-date because when you open it, you know it’s current.

  • Wdesk gives me more time to focus on the substance of the reports.

  • I'll have 75 people in the document making comments from about 35 different departments, including our external auditors and attorneys. It's great not having to read everyone's handwriting. I'm able to make sure I can address all of the comments that are made and have a back-and-forth discussion on them.

  • We actually use Wdesk for documents that we don't even file—like a big memo that needs to be written—because you have the ability to let multiple people in the document at the same time. We actually set that up in Wdesk—we just print it out and sign off as opposed to filing it.
