Bowne & Co., Inc., a provider of shareholder and marketing communications services, and Fujitsu jointly announced today that the companies have formed a strategic alliance to integrate Fujitsu Interstage XWand into Bowne’s suite of XBRL solutions. Interstage XWand provides Bowne with a complete XBRL development platform, paired with validation technology that leverages the latest XBRL specifications. Fujitsu’s Interstage XWand software, combined with Bowne’s suite of XBRL solutions, delivers a comprehensive approach to SEC Year 1 and Year 2 tagging requirements for both block and detailed Notes tagging. Additionally, the alliance benefits Bowne’s investment management and international clients who need solutions to support the SEC mutual fund risk/return summary mandate, as well as new XBRL requirements in the United Kingdom, both of which go into effect next year. Fujitsu recently announced Interstage XWand Version 11, which includes a number of key enhancements such as detailed tagging, tagging within Microsoft Word documents, the ability to extend and customize in-house validation of reports before submitting them, and out-of-the box analysis support to allow clients to more easily conduct comparisons of financial data within their companies and across multiple organizations. www.bowne.com www.fujitsu.com
