The Workiva Story

We founded WebFilings in 2008 to change the way corporations were managing and reporting business data. We released our first cloud solution in 2010 at a time when most companies were hesitant to place their trust in the cloud. That quickly changed.

Our Wdesk platform caught on like wildfire. Companies big and small adopted Wdesk because for the first time, they could collaborate with control and accountability. We changed our company name to Workiva in 2014 to keep pace with growing demand for our solutions from finance, compliance, risk, and audit teams.

Today, Workiva is modernizing how people work across thousands of organizations around the globe, including 75 percent of the Fortune 500®.
