Workiva Key Enterprise & Cloud Applications


SCORES Analysis

Workiva Strengths

Workiva created Wdesk, a cloud-based productivity platform for enterprises to collect, link, report, and analyze business data with control and accountability. Wdesk proprietary word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation applications are integrated and built upon a data management engine, offering synchronized data, controlled collaboration, granular permissions, and a full audit trail. Wdesk helps mitigate enterprise risk, improve productivity, and give users confidence to make decisions with real-time data.

  • Reduce Risk. Managers rely on Wdesk to help them make better decisions. Through the use of linked data, decision-makers can trust that Wdesk presentations and reports are up to date and consistent, reducing the risk of making decisions based on incorrect data or reporting incorrect data externally. In addition, Wdesk ensures that presentations and reports are published using the correct business rules, formats and XBRL protocols.
  • Improve Data Transparency. Numbers, text, charts and graphics in presentations and reports can be linked inside Wdesk, which becomes an organization’s central repository for critical data, or “single source of truth.” Each data point has its own history of changes, or data lineage. Decision-makers at our customers benefit from the ability to drill down into each discrete data point, which increases data transparency, visibility and, therefore, trust of critical business data across an organization.
  • Report with Greater Frequency. Many critical presentations and reports are published infrequently due to the difficulties associated with collecting data, compiling inputs across teams, and incorporating reviews, comments and revisions. Within the Wdesk platform, documents, data and graphics remain linked, allowing presentations and reports to be easily updated, synchronized and published with greater frequency.
  • Enable Real-time Decision-Making. Wdesk’s live-linking and data-auditing capabilities significantly enhance data integrity, such that Wdesk can become the centralized, trusted data repository within our customers’ critical business data ecosystem. The use of verified data from trusted sources to compile timely reports with less risk and greater transparency and frequency allows decision-makers to make better informed, real-time decisions.


In April 2015, Workiva launched a new feature in Wdesk, called Evidence Management, which allows SOX teams, for the first time, to digitally embed evidence in internal audit work papers.


In August 2015, Workiva announced that more than 200 companies – including Casey's General Stores Inc., Noodles & Company, Pioneer Energy Services Corp., Republic Airways Holdings Inc. and Western Alliance Bancorporation – are using Wdesk to increase efficiency in documenting, implementing and assessing internal controls over financial reporting as required under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).


In September 2015, Workiva introduced a new feature called Support Binders that creates a digital paper trail for reporting to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). With Support Binders, SEC reporting teams can digitally attach and annotate a variety of substantiating documents to their financial reports.
