Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


The current financial reporting systems are becoming obsolete due to the increasing sophistication of their users, the changing economic environment, and their inability to utilize current technology. This paper proposes an Extended Business Reporting App that will apply current technology, specifically app-based technology, to collect and integrate traditional variables with exogenous data. The app will customize presentation of the data based on user demands and allow a low-cost comparison among entities.
