Financial Data Retrieval

What are the advantages of using Validis compared to just getting the reports from my client?2018-06-29T03:43:05+00:00

Validis DataShare essentially eliminates the back and forth requests for financial reports from your client. DataShare connects to your SMB client’s accounting application, collects the full transactional history, and automatically maps and standardizes the data. Our DataShare APIs allow you to receive and consume the data in the way that works best for you. Data retrieval, interrogation, encryption, and standardization takes just minutes.
