LeaseAccelerator



LeaseAccelerator is the market leader in lease management and accounting software (SaaS) designed specifically for equipment lessees. It defines best practices and is used by global companies – including large manufacturers and health-care companies such as Cisco, Cummins, Eaton, Ascension Health, and NetApp – to compete, manage, control, and account for their equipment leases in more than 50 countries, generating recurring hard-cost savings of 12-18% by driving down lease rates and improving return performance.
 
LeaseAccelerator also simplifies and accelerates FASB, IFRS, SOX and SEC compliance. LeaseAccelerator 11.0, released in June 2015, includes many new lease accounting features that make it easy for equipment lessees to transition to the new lease accounting standard – an industry first.
 
Here is the challenge: Many global companies lease equipment all over the world. They use spreadsheets and email to track leases, assets, and stakeholders. Given the dynamics, finance executives do not trust their data, can’t return equipment on-time, and can’t scale. They know complying with current standards and the new standards, in which all leases longer than 12 months are capitalized, requires much more. Instead, these fiduciaries need an asset-based lease management solution to ensure the accuracy and completeness of their accounting and public reporting – well in advance of the implementation date of the new standard to provide SEC comparable statements.
 
Using LeaseAccelerator, lessees can manage the lifecycle of leases, assets, stakeholders, and lessors. It enables decentralized work and controls with centralized data, documents, and reporting – supporting lease vs. buy analysis, in-country lease bidding, performance management, portfolio management, accounting, and financial reporting. LeaseAccelerator integrates with procurement systems (iProcurement, Ariba) and ERP applications (Oracle, Peoplesoft, and SAP) and serves as a lease accounting subledger. In addition, it’s wrapped by a SOC 1 Type II attestation.
 
Using LeaseAccelerator, you can control your processes of sourcing capital and booking transactions. Then, over the term, you can manage any asset-level changes in location or business coding. You can also manage any mid-term or end-of-term events (buyouts, renewals, and returns) using notification and attestation capabilities.
 
These capabilities make it easy to reconcile your portfolio step-by-step at the asset level on a monthly basis and produce auditable financial statements with data that you trust – under the current lease accounting standard or the new one. By adopting LeaseAccelerator, you can remove the uncertainty of transitioning to the new lease accounting standard and continue to use equipment leasing as a strategic tool for your businesses – an objective shared by your lessors.
 
LeaseAccelerator is available today over the web at www.leaseaccelerator.com. It includes access to a competitive marketplace in which lessors from The Global Lessor Network (GLN) will bid for your business, standardized contracts, expert support, and managed services.
 
Using the GLN, global companies with a need for in-country leasing expertise and financing can identify, compete, and transact with local lessors. LeaseAccelerator and the GLN have supported transactions in 50 countries, spanning a wide variety of asset types, including aircraft, construction, forklifts, furniture, IT, mining, networking, and transportation equipment. Lessors can register for the GLN at www.lessornetwork.com.

LeaseTeam is developing the next generation of products and solutions for the equipment leasing and finance industry. LeaseTeam’s end-to-end single system approach allows businesses to stop talking about front-end and back-end processes and start talking about a total transaction engagement lifecycle.  
 
Equipment finance transactions are no longer linear; therefore, you need a system that will provide you a comprehensive view of your business. LeaseTeam’s single system - one database solution, ASPIRE, provides an all-encompassing view of your business, and the benefits this affords are numerous. For example: more efficient data entry, better reporting and deeper insight into your business and your customer’s experience -  all of which help to accurately define your business model and strategic direction.
 
Having a single system for your entire lease and loan processing also means more aligned and streamlined processes as well as significant efficiency gains. For example, you can create late fee notifications, email them out, and store them in the repository all as one seamless automated process.  
 
A single system also gives you greater transparency into your business. For example, changes made to a contract, including notes or comments, can be seen throughout the organization. This allows you to configure intelligent workflows that can be implemented from origination, including: task lists, email notifications etc. Most importantly, transparency into your business allows you to break down departmental silos and unite disparate groups to provide a seamless customer experience. This is absolutely essential to remain competitive over the long haul in this evolving digital era.
