"The accounting industry is in the midst of a technological tsunami in which antiquated closed, proprietary financial reporting systems are being challenged by more cost effective, XBRL-based systems. Bergeron's book provides an excellent, no-nonsense overview of how executives can take advantage of this cost savings technology without losing their shirts on hidden infrastructure costs. Don't even think about talking to a vendor before reading this book."
