Workiva created Wdesk, a cloud-based platform that modernizes how people work within thousands of organizations worldwide. With Wdesk, there’s no switching back and forth between different versions. Instead, users are able to collaborate in real-time, mitigate risk, and improve productivity. Wdesk gives users the confidence they need to make data-driven decision across the enterprise.


Workiva developed Wdesk, an intuitive, FedRAMP Authorized cloud platform that modernizes reporting and compliance processes. It enables teams to combine numbers and narrative, present numerical data in tables, source data from enterprise systems and spreadsheets, and manage multiple levels of contributors. Wdesk’s 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. With Wdesk data linking, changes are automatically updated in all linked instances, including numbers, text, charts, and graphics throughout a customer's spreadsheets, word-processing documents, and presentation decks in the Wdesk platform.
