IRIS iFILE is an end-to-end electronic filing framework. Comprising several modular components, iFILE allows easy management of all the stages of the disclosure management lifecycle. The framework can be customized for any reporting environment and uses the XBRL information standard as the core format for data collection and validation.

IRIS iFILE is a modular & scalable e-filing platform engineered with XBRL/SDMX information standard framework. The platform is ideal for the collection, validation, submission, review, and dissemination of information filed by Regulated Entities.

IRIS iFILE is divided into filer and regulator modules. The filer modules allow filers to create XBRL instance documents for filing a disclosure with the regulator. The regulator modules consist of several applications that allow the regulator to accept, validate and store instance documents. It also allows the regulator to manage and publish the taxonomy, filings, and filing calendar, among others.

Conceptualized by a multi-disciplinary team from IRIS, iFILE is an XBRL-based eFiling Platform compatible with different Taxonomy architectural structures.

iFILE Client is an easy-to-use spreadsheet based application which helps prepare information in templates based on XBRL taxonomy. They can be easily customized to match the required reporting pattern. The regulator can control the templates and also allow users to create their own templates from the taxonomy.
IRIS iFILE validates data being filed against both XBRL/ iXBRL validation rules as well as regulator defined custom validations. This two level validation process (one at the user’s end and the other at the regulator’s) helps make submissions error-free.
Create & Submit
IRIS iFILE enables submission of XBRL/iXBRL instance documents and/or taxonomy documents to the regulators for further processing. Encryption of data and digital signatures are available as value-added features based on the security needs of the regulator.
Store & Integrate
XBRL instance documents are stored, based on regulator’s requirement in a file server and/or the data from the instance documents are extracted and stored in a relational database. IRIS iFILE can also be integrated with the existing data management system.
IRIS iFILE’s compliance dashboard allows the regulator to easily view the status and details of various reports. This helps flag non-compliant or inconsistent data. The reports module comes with standard reporting templates as well as the ability to create adhoc reports.
IRIS iFILE has approval/rejection mechanisms and a distribution engine which enables instant dissemination of information in various document formats. It has both a web based rendering and a Microsoft® Excel® add-in so users can easily view and download the XBRL instance documents.
Manage Filings & Entities
Regulators may use administrative modules to manage the rights and roles of users of the system including company and regulatory users. A similar module is also available for companies. The module also provides version control for managing taxonomy and filing template versions.
