  • Now, we have time to actually look at the data rather than continue to fight with our system.

  • The fundamental problem that Workiva seeks to solve is availability of data in the right place at the right time.

  • Having peace of mind in terms of the accuracy of the data is extremely powerful.

  • If you're able to spend less time mining data and more time analyzing, there's more value in the work that you're doing.
