Wdesk Modernizes Collaboration and Automates Workflow in SOX and Other Business Data Processes


AMES, Iowa, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Workiva (NYSE:WK), creator of the Wdesk cloud-based productivity platform for enterprises, today announced that Hawaiian Airlines has expanded its use of Wdesk across the company, including managing internal controls over financial reporting as required by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).

"Wdesk has modernized, simplified and streamlined our reporting processes, giving us flexibility and real-time collaboration tools," said Keric Chang, director of SEC reporting and SOX compliance at Hawaiian Airlines.

The airline's former process relied on a manual process including collecting data via email from the company's business process owners. With Wdesk, the airline linked its SOX risk-control matrix, process narratives and flowcharts, which streamlined how they manage, monitor and test internal controls. The platform also helps Hawaiian maintain data integrity and process consistency.

"Based on its cost and time-savings and ease-of-use, we were pleased to expand the Wdesk platform to Hawaiian's other processes including internal controls and SOX compliance," said Chang.

Wdesk offers clients a better way to share files with people across an organization. This enables them to create their process once, knowing that Wdesk will track workflow, create automatic reminders, show the progress in a dashboard and certify sign-offs.
