The Company & the ELA Market

LeaseAccelerator is an Enterprise Lease Accounting (ELA) SaaS Solution provider to the Global 2000 companies. Our current customers include F-500 corporations, such as Salesforce.com, Cisco, NetApp, Eaton and Cummins. Enterprise Lease Accounting (ELA) is a new enterprise software solution category that is now experiencing significant growth due to the new lease accounting standard announced in February 2016. For most Global 2000 companies, Enterprise Lease Accounting (ELA) is a dysfunctional enterprise business process. The new lease accounting standard is creating a significant market disruption for most of the G-2000. These global organizations lack the knowledge, process, and systems to address the new compliance requirements. LeaseAccelerator provides customers with a SaaS ELA solution to manage this enterprise process that generates significant cost saving, improves operational effectiveness, and reduces their compliance risk.

 

ELA for large global organizations is a complex enterprise business process that spans a wide range of corporate functions.

These functions include:

• Sourcing: the process which starts with the initial field request for equipment and progresses through a competitive RFP process for financing, analyzing responses, awarding, papering and executing contracts

• Portfolio Management: the processes which include tracking relevant stakeholders, updating key data elements supporting internal management accountability, monitoring performance and coordinating end of term activities such as returns, buyouts and renewals

• Finance and Accounting: activities required for internal management reporting and analysis, external financial accounting and disclosure reporting, administering complex business hierarchies and cost allocation structures
