The IFRS Change Experts

Over the last several years, accounting change has been a consistent driver across multiple industries.  At their core, these standard changes introduce the need for contract, transaction and/or asset level detail as well as finance ownership and control.

Our software solutions including the Aptitude IFRS 17 Solution provide these core capabilities as packaged solutions that enable finance to understand, control and automate high volume, complex accounting processes.

We are currently helping clients address multiple standards including:

Aptitude Software has a specialist Finance Advisory team that works with regulators and with 3rd parties such as Deloitte, KPMG, PWC and EY to understand new standards and regulatory pronouncements and establish associated best practice in interpretation and implementation over time.

This accounting and regulatory knowledge is built into our products from the outset and results in solutions and scenarios that are incorporated into our products to ensure customers can achieve market best practices, reduce risk and speed implementations.
