With Workiva, blumshapiro and its customers are able to manage the entire SOX compliance process from start to finish in a single, connected platform with purpose-built features that enable teams to save time, reduce errors and gain full visibility into their compliance process. blumshapiro will offer the Workiva Wdesk platform with its domain expertise and managed services to clients in the areas of Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and internal controls, internal audit and other governance, risk and compliance (GRC) processes.
“At blumshapiro, we regard SOX audits not merely as exercises in compliance, but also as a way to create greater value for organizations,” said Jonathan Fink, blumshapiro partner. “Our strategic partnership with Workiva will provide our advisors and our clients with industry-leading tools to control monitoring costs and discover value-added opportunities.”
“Our partnership will help companies of all sizes realize more business value from their SOX and GRC programs,” said Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva. “By working together, we will help organizations gain insights, make data-driven decisions and ultimately drive better business outcomes.”
With Wdesk permission controls, administrators can control access at all levels so that users can create, edit and review data and documents that only relate to them. This control feature also enables users to grant secure access to their external auditors, outside counsel and other consultants, which streamlines the review process and reduces expenses.
