Redesigned EDGAR Online Web Site Spotlights XBRL Solutions for Investors, Analysts, Regulators and Business Executives
NEW YORK Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- EDGAR(R) Online, Inc. announced today that it has completely overhauled and launched a new customer-focused corporate Web site. The site, http://www.edgar-online.com/, was strategically re-crafted to better meet the needs of its current and prospective customers and investors. Newly featured on the site are EDGAR Online's XBRL capabilities, including open access to the Company's own XBRL-formatted financials and links to allow other companies to see their own financials in XBRL.
"We are particularly excited about the addition of our own financials tagged in XBRL to the site - we've done this in advance of the anticipated SEC mandate for public companies to file in XBRL and also post those financials on their own Web sites," said Philip Moyer, CEO, EDGAR Online, Inc. "Our XBRL pages not only give investors, analysts and others immediate access to XBRL-tagged financial information but also showcase just one of the ways we can help companies with their own XBRL. Visitors can also link directly from our new corporate site to TryXBRL.com to view their own XBRL-tagged financial statements and we encourage all public companies to do so and become more educated about how they can get started with XBRL."The new site includes easier-to-find, expanded and more detailed information about EDGAR Online's products and services. Centrally featured is the Company's unique XBRL expertise, including its capabilities to create, store, disseminate and view XBRL data.
The Company has also made it easier to compare the features and prices of its subscription products and purchase online. Product pages include detailed data sheets, product overviews and free downloadable white papers.
Added Moyer, "As a technology company that interacts heavily with customers and prospects through our Web site, we must ensure that our content is optimally organized so that they can find what they want quickly and easily. As a regular part of our quality review process, we survey users about the effectiveness of our Web site. The enhanced site reflects the feedback from our customers."
