Key takeaways: 
  • Traditional financial reports were static documents with results and related content presented as a mix of text, graphics, and financial statements
  • With Inline XBRLTM (iXBRL), structured data is embedded and tagged within the designed HTML document, ensuring greater accuracy and easier analysis
  • iXBRLTM increases efficiency in the reporting process by allowing you to work on the document and data at the same time
