    quote "What we've found so far is when we go to do processing - 120,000 leases are processed in less than three hours. I mean, this is incredible for us. We could do it every day if we wanted, which that's just amazing. The fact that the controls and error management is built into the product, from a Sox control perspective, that's going to make it so much easier.

How Aptitude supports the intersection of revenue recognition and lease accounting compliance

As standalone regulations, revenue recognition (IFRS 15 and ASC 606) and lease accounting (IFRS 16 and ASC 842) are each challenging in their own right. However, some industries are in the unique position of needing to look at how these regulations intertwine and solve for them in parallel and where they intersect.
