LONDON – May 17, 2019 – Workiva (NYSE:WK), the leading cloud provider of connected data, reporting and compliance solutions, was named the Best-In-Class Cloud Service Provider by the UK Cloud Awards 2019 at a ceremony here last night.
Now in its sixth year, the UK Cloud Awards recognise innovation and excellence in the cloud industry by showcasing leading companies, customers and individuals in the United Kingdom.
Workiva was recognised for its Wdesk platform that helps organisations consolidate, connect and tag their data in a single, cloud environment so they are able to reduce risk and save time when filing reports with various regulators and other stakeholders.
Workiva, the global leader in XBRL and Inline XBRL, is also streamlining how customers comply with the European Securities and Markets Authority’s mandate for Inline XBRL for European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) reporting. More than 5,000 EU issuers will be required to use ESEF taxonomy for their annual financial reports, ending on or after January 1, 2020.
Multinational companies are also using Wdesk to improve efficiency and transparency in global statutory reporting, which is a complex process for reporting information to government agencies in compliance with each jurisdiction’s local GAAP requirements.
“We are honored to be recognised by the UK Cloud Awards,” said Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva. “Wdesk is the only cloud platform that provides data assurance throughout the entire reporting process — from ERP transactional data to final reports. We will continue to be a driving force in transforming financial reporting throughout the world.”
