XBRL technology provider CoreFiling announces a tie-up with Australia's leading XML metadata specialist.
CoreFiling, the XBRL product and architecture specialist based in Oxford, England, today announced a partnership with Allette Systems, the Sydney-based XML integrator and application developer, to provide service and support for the Australian government's Standard Business Reporting project. Allette is well known for its extensive experience with XML-based metadata systems, and has a track record of successful government implementations.
"Teaming up with Allette allows us to provide Australian customers with round-the-clock support, including for the government's flagship SBR project," said John Turner, CEO of CoreFiling. "Allette are the leading XML experts in the Southern hemisphere, so they are a natural fit with our XBRL and architectural experience."
"Over the past two years CoreFiling has used Allette's innovative, metadata-driven XML applications as components of XBRL solutions in Europe and the US. Their work on a range of standards, including CTO Rick Jelliffe's development of Schematron, are extremely well known internationally."
Allette will work with CoreFiling's Sydney-based staff to provide support and maintenance for CoreFiling's product range in Australasia, including Spider Monkey, the world's only multi-user XBRL taxonomy editor, and True North, the gold standard for XBRL validation. Allette will continue to deliver training courses on behalf of CoreFiling.
"The SBR project complements our existing activities in Australia," said Nick Carr, Managing Director of Allette. "CoreFiling's experience in other SBR projects around the world, and our expertise in validation architectures, will make a very compelling service offering for SBR agencies as well as software firms looking to implement SBR within their products and services."
