“Onspring has created an amazing sense of value within the organization,” says Leslie McGuirk, CPA, CIA, and Vice President, Financial Compliance at Warner Bros. Discovery. “Our external auditor can access Onspring for all of our control information. We’ve completely moved away from using manual tools for controls purposes, so that’s been a big efficiency, not just for our teams but for our controls centers too because they no longer have to upload documentation to support what we need.”
All of Warner Bros. Discovery’s GRC data is now housed inside Onspring, consolidating information across the company’s financial compliance, internal audit, information security, and ethics and compliance departments.
Similarly, by using Onspring’s 302 certification automation, Warner Bros. Discovery can provide fully automated reports by leveraging data already documented within the tool, saving an estimated 200 hours per year in 302 certification processes.
“Prior to building out the 302 Certification module within Onspring, we would have to export data from our other tools across departments, format it and manually upload it to DocuSign where we needed to collect the necessary signatures,” Jen says. “This process was very time-consuming because there were too many steps, and everything needed to look perfect for our stakeholders.”
Warner Bros. Discovery also leans into Onspring’s live filtering feature to self-serve select data for user-specified reporting. Admins no longer need to re-format and export data each day into email reports, saving about 100 hours per year on reporting alone.
Onspring’s timekeeping dashboard was a bonus, allowing team members to log individual hours, which is linked to a larger report that records all staff time against each project. This feature has improved Warner Bros. Discovery’s efficiency and saved the company an additional $7,000 per year in licensed cost for separate timekeeping software.
“We’re incredibly happy in choosing Onspring as our GRC platform,” Jen says. “And what’s more, Onspring’s GRC product just gets better and better with the different enhancement roll-outs that Onspring makes each quarter, so they always stay on top of changing consumer needs.”
“Onspring isn’t just a tool we use; I feel like it’s become part of who we are,” Leslie adds. “It’s brought us together as a team and made everything better.”
