Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Wdesk for our SEC reporting and for our internal controls (SOX) processes. As such, Wdesk is localized within use of the Finance/Accounting and Internal Audit teams, though there may be interest to increase its use to other departments based on needs/wants. We also have Wdesk used by our external auditors and our legal counsel to review filings and to leave comments/ make redline changes before we finalize documents.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We have been using the Wdesk software for just over two years, and we love the product as a whole and the company's level of excellence and transparency in customer service. The tool is used by some departments of the company, including ours. Wdesk is a cloud platform and with it, financial data is easily captured, prepared, and aggregated from different sources on a secure cloud-based platform, without complex configuration. I as a user create and model easily and without complications reports and analyzes linked to data for what we need, when, and where it is needed.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

It controls all the obstacles that come up during documentation, making spreadsheets, or preparing presentations because of its ability to handle cloud-based functionality. The real-time reporting feature makes it easy to track all our project activities. All kinds of risks can be tackled easily and control over each part of a project can easily be gained. Documents remain confidential and only authorized persons can view them. Tables can be created easily and the help section is very approachable.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Used to quickly update financial statements for our financial reporting team, reducing errors and improving productivity. It helps departments across the company reduce errors by allowing certain fields to be auto-updated throughout once the financial statements are updated. Previously, we used Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint and would end up spending hours manually fixing formatting when small updates were made to a write-up or table, but that all comes together much more quickly with Wdesk.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We've implemented Wdesk in several departments in our organization. Our Financial Reporting team uses Wdesk to file the company's 10-K and 10-Qs. Legal uses it to file the Proxy Statement, and Internal Reporting uses it to file our quarterly press release 8Ks. We manage interdepartmental input on each document through permissions in the program.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our Global Financial Reporting Team currently uses Wdesk to help prepare our Earnings Release, Form 10-K, Form 10-Q, and IFRS financial statements. We are currently in the process of encouraging other departments to start using Wdesk as we see the incredible potential in the software and how it can help various processes. It helps address issues such as document control, consistent financial reporting, permission control, etc.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I have been using Wdesk for SEC filings and just recently, involving other groups such as Treasury and Legal to use for their own unique filings such as registration related documents, conflict minerals, proxy etc, . The primary focus is SEC filings but with the recent implementation of Certifications, we are expanding the use of Wdesk in other areas, slowly but surely. Our goal is to expand the use of the Wdesk platform for other important functions such as SOX.
