Convert XBRL into different formats
for people to read
XBRL is a highly technical language. It is typically used in system to system interactions to enable machines to be more efficient when interpreting and taking advantage of the data. People (entrepreneurs, accountants, auditors, etc.) aren’t machines and need different formats of this same data. That is where Rendering comes into the picture. It allows for users to convert a validated XBRL instance into other formats to fit their usage in their processes and systems.
Semansys provides rendering functionality via desktop, cloud/web, and API.
Different aspects of rendering are available in different parts of the chain dependent on the use case. E.g. our tools targeting auditors allow for not only the rendering of the XBRL, but also the output of an audit report that can support highlighting the differences between instances. Therefore, rendering isn’t only restrictive to business report data, but covers everything up to the chain so far. It is available and utilized in a variety of our user facing software (desktop or cloud) xbrlOne Insight and xbrlOne Assurance as well as via an API on xbrlOne.
