Streamlined data. And compliance, too.

Since the SEC began requiring XBRL tagging in 2009, controversy has arisen around companies who provide inappropriate data, too many tags, deviations from standard tagging procedures, and other issues. With recent SEC hints that they may start issuing comment letters on XBRL data, increased scrutiny seems inevitable.
