Creative Solutions, a provider of business software and part of the Thomson Corp., and Rivet Software, a financial management and Extensible Business Reporting Language software developer, have partnered to make Rivet's Dragon Tag and Dragon View XBRL applications available to CS customers.

XBRL is a technology that tags financial information through disparate applications and carries it through the business reporting chain. A nonprofit international consortium, XBRL International Inc., governs developers .

"Years ago, we came out with XBRL in our reporting software," said CS vice president of marketing Teresa Mackintosh. "But we saw a distinct advantage as the technology progressed to have someone closely tied with the consortium to take over the XBRL capabilities for Creative Solutions."

Through the partnership, added Mackintosh, e-mail help for Rivet products will be free, a service normally prices at $99 per year. Dragon Tag is available for $299 per licensing fee. For pricing on Dragon View, and more information, visit
