CompSci Introduces XBRL Analysis Tool

Individuals interested in exploring how eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) is changing the way companies are filing financial reports should take CompSci Resources “Interactive Analysis” (iA) for a spin.

XBRL lends itself to automated processing, however, it can be difficult to sift through the tagged data to read and understand the information. iA is an XBRL-Viewer that is able to retrieve, format and analyze data stored in XBRL instance documents. iA displays the information in a user-friendly and easy-to-read format.

The company, a leader provider of standards enforcement, financial and regulatory information technology (IT) solutions, is providing a free online demo of its first XBRL product, iA. The demo, which can be found on the company website at http://www.compsciresources.com/products.html, uses publicly available XBRL EDGAR filings downloaded directly from the U.S. Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC). Advanced features including company-to-company comparisons and spreadsheet export capabilities are also part of the demo.
