Assure Works With WDesk

Workiva delivers Wdesk, an intuitive cloud platform modernizing how people work within thousands of organizations, including over 70 percent of the 500 largest U.S. corporations by total revenue. Wdesk is built upon a data management engine, offering controlled collaboration, data integration, granular permissions, and a full audit trail.

The evidence automatically integrates into Wdesk for SOX testing purposes—streamlining reporting and testing in a single connected environment. You get better alignment of control monitoring and a more efficient testing process.
