Deloitte Enhances Accounting and Finance Portfolio with Workiva Connected Reporting and Compliance Platform
Strategic alliance can help finance departments create automated reports and regulatory filings to mitigate risk, enhance auditability and improve efficiency
NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2019—Deloitte today announces a strategic alliance with Workiva (NYSE:WK), provider of a leading connected reporting and compliance platform, designed to improve financial and managerial reporting. The alliance enhances Deloitte’s finance, accounting and compliance solutions portfolio, which aims to help organizations transform, automate and govern financial accounting processes while improving internal control, statutory and regulatory activities.
Workiva’s platform enables users to connect and integrate data from third-party systems and applications to improve data collaboration, enhance accuracy and automate downstream reports and analyses for risk management, financial reporting and regulatory compliance processes—all within a secure cloud environment.
CFOs and controllers are taking unnecessary risk of errors in their reports and regulatory filings if they are relying on outdated, legacy software to wrangle disparate business data with multiple collaborators. The Workiva platform gives them the ability to connect data among their source systems and applications, streamline workflow, automate data updates and create trusted reports with a full audit trail. By improving efficiency and accuracy, our customers have more time for analysis and strategic guidance.
—Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva
