    Timely reporting and decisions

    Simplify the process of collecting, verifying, and preparing data from multiple systems to deliver accurate, actionable reports again and again.

    Extract more value from your data by automating data collection from source systems. Save time and eliminate errors with connected numbers and narrative across reports that update immediately as changes are made.

    A full audit trail and blacklines help you easily track revisions, whether you are working on budget preparation, monthly progress reports, or ad hoc presentations for trustees.

  • Enable integrated risk management

    Collaborate across the three lines of defense, from operational management to risk management to audit.

    A nimble, transparent approach

    Manage ERM dashboards, controls, and internal audit processes more efficiently. Controlled collaboration means internal and external partners no longer have to wait their turns to start working on their sections of a project.

    Built-in tasking cuts down on email clutter, and an audit trail provides a complete record of edits, comments, responses, and resolutions. As your institution updates its policies and procedures, teams can document the what, when, and why of each change with complete transparency.

    Workiva provides secure reporting, compliance, and data collaboration solutions with an established procurement process through the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) if needed.
