announced in North America enhancements to its eXtensible Business Reporting Language

Partner Program helps these solution and service providers easily
incorporate XBRL into their offerings to meet their clients'
goals by providing software packages and pricing models that are
tailored to meet their specific needs. It draws on the experience
that Fujitsu has garnered through helping the Tokyo Stock
