These software may include accounting software, enterprise resource planning software, or disclosure management software.
- If you prefer to fully integrate XBRL reporting into your existing systems and processes then you may want to consider the expertise of software service providers.
- If you have in-house expertise then you can install a customized software package which incorporates the appropriate taxonomy and allows tagging of data elements against the taxonomy.
