- The company received a return on investment in about one year
- "We've had a very, very good response from our C-level executives on Wdesk."
350+ hours saved through automated dashboarding

- Wdesk for SOX compliance allowed for unparalleled collaboration and slashed year-end work hours
- “It feels like I’ve been in it for years because it’s such an easy product to use. It has streamlined so much for us.”
Wdesk has paid for itself and then some by replacing outsourcing without adding internal headcount.
It's easy to add a footnote to the testing documentation, and then it's easy to put that into the audit report. They find themselves doing things just because it's easy. There's no doubt that their satisfaction would've been much less if we had tried to do all that in Excel and Word and PowerPoint.
Workiva connects everybody well and helps them communicate, review, and do all of their activities in one system. All the information is now in the system, not in our team’s computers. It’s in a safe place.
