Most companies are behind schedule either because they underestimated the level of complexity associated with adoption or because of the ripple effects of delays in related projects such as revenue recognition. To help companies in their final transition efforts, LeaseAccelerator prepared a list of the 90 Things Lease Accounting Teams Need to Do in the 90 Days Before the Deadline.
