Author: Will Jan

Date: August 13, 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic has become a true stress test for the tax and accounting community, from the surge in online shopping challenging e-commerce taxation to remote back-office accounting leading to poor financial reporting. A revised solution focus is needed to ensure compliance in the new normal.

Outsell bases the information in this report on a comprehensive and rigorous methodology we developed. This methodology provides financial estimates for the overall market and for specific companies in the ecosystem. Outsell methodology starts with its growing database of over 10,000 global data and information companies, which we assign to all appropriate segments in which they operate.

Outsell uses all publicly available information and its own insight and research with the companies themselves to size each player in the space. We size public companies primarily on their reported results, though we also apply Outsell analysis to further segment and align their revenues according to Outsell’s industry segmentation. We size private companies using the best available information on each company, augmented by our own primary research.

For each market segment, we identify the top 20 players in the space (by revenue) in a table. Those companies that derive revenue from multiple segments have their revenue allocated by segment. Only the portion of a provider’s total revenue that is attributed to the subject segment is identified under that company for that segment.
