Anything else Benzinga should know about your company?

Validis is different from other fintechs in the market. Our technology performs a comprehensive financial data extraction from the end client's accounting application – no other technology provides the breadth & depth of data. Validis then automatically transforms the data into standardized financial reports, in a consistent format, and within a single app (no other technology provides as comprehensive a set of reports). Additionally, our technology requires no installation and leaves a zero client-side footprint.
