  14. 14. workiva.com 4. Faster, more efficient communication
  15. 15. workiva.com Many comments require some type of iteration between the owner of the document and the reviewer or between multiple reviewers.

  20. 20. workiva.com 6. Collaboration

  22. 22. workiva.com Digital reviews provide an environment for document contributors and reviewers to work on the draft as a team. Better results can be achieved more quickly when individuals are sharing information and not working in silos. 6. Collaboration
  23. 23. workiva.com Using Wdesk for digital review allows reviewers to bounce ideas off of each other and improve the quality of a document. Users receive instant information from each other, and the owner of the document no longer needs to manage communication lines. With unified collaboration, the author gains consensus on debated topics. 6. Collaboration
  24. 24. workiva.com 7. Sub-sections and division of responsibility
  25. 25. workiva.com Document owners often need to send documents to other departments, such as legal or audit, for review.

Permissions also eliminate the worry of edits being made in the wrong section. 7. Sub-sections and division of responsibility
  26. 26. workiva.com 8. Due dates and notifications
  27. 27. workiva.com When sending a document for review, owners typically will append due dates as to when the comments are needed to be submitted in order to adhere to tight deadlines. If the review is sent via email, the due dates are in textual form and carry no authoritative weight. This means there is less review time in lieu of delivery time. 8. Due dates and notifications

Electronic due dates encourage users to submit their comments in a timely fashion, and automatic notifications give helpful reminders, keeping all parties on track. 1 8. Due dates and notifications
  29. 29. workiva.com 9. Accuracy
  30. 30. workiva.com Another potential problem arises when documents are printed out and comments are handwritten. • How good is everyone’s handwriting? • If someone made comments on a paper copy of the document, will that information be interpreted correctly by the document owner? Any confusion in the deciphering of the handwriting delays the overall process as the owner seeks to clarify the accuracy of the submitted comment. 9. Accuracy
  31. 31. workiva.com Comments in Wdesk are clearly associated with the document content. There's no need for transcribing handwritten comments from paper or copying and pasting comments from other applications. 9. Accuracy
  32. 32. workiva.com 10. Comment attributes and filtering
  33. 33. workiva.com Capturing comments digitally within Wdesk allows all users to see additional information regarding the comment, including comment author, time of comment submission, and comment status. Users can apply filters to see information that's relevant to them. On documents that may have hundreds of comments, being able to filter comments based on the author (e.g., the CFO) or time submitted (e.g., comments within the last 24 hours) is beneficial. 10.
