Wdata users integrate their external data into Wdesk to perform faster and more reliable reporting and analysis with linking, dynamic commentary, controlled collaboration, granular permissions and clear audit trails.

“Financial transformation for the modern age begins with Wdata and ends with Wdesk,” said Matt Rizai, Chairman and CEO of Workiva. “Our customers are able to eliminate data errors by ensuring quality and control throughout the entire financial reporting and analysis process – from initial discovery to final reports for management, boards and regulators.”

Enriched financial data, consolidated in the cloud
Data is easily captured, prepared and aggregated from disparate sources into a secure, cloud-based platform without complex setup.

More access to better data

Automated reporting downstream
Narrative is linked to data across documents, spreadsheets, presentations so that any change is instantly updated throughout all downstream reports and analyses.

Last mile of data assurance
Data quality, transparency and control is maintained throughout the entire financial analysis and reporting process – from discovery to final reports – to eliminate risk of errors.
