Concord, Mass. (Sept. 9, 2003) -- OneSource Information Services, Inc., which warehouses and distributes operations information on businesses around the world has upped its commitment to the XBRL programming code by making data on over 750,000 United Kingdom and European companies available in XBRL format.

The Concord, Mass.-based company, which organizes and distributes data that it gathers from more than 2,500 sources, began supporting XBRL in March with a program that made information in that code available on some 20,000 companies worldwide. OneSource marketing direct Joe Tarragano said the company's extension with XBRL represents its commitment "to delivering the technology, services and support our customers need to maximize productivity from both external and internal business information." The company makes its information available in XBRL format via a product called Applink SDK, whose starting price is $10,000, according to a company announcement in March.

OneSource says its information services help companies' "vital business processes including serving their customers, finding and leveraging new opportunities, and managing suppliers and partners." The information it gathers and organizes includes details on companies' financials, industries, key executives, as well as news, analyst reports, and trade and business press articles on the companies.

OneSource's customers include Chubb Group of Insurance Cos., Warren, N.J.; Bank One, Chicago; Citigroup New York; Cisco Systems Inc. in San Jose, Calif., and Big Four firm Deloitte & Touche.
