Is an Internal or External Lease Management Center of Excellence (CoE) Right for You as a Large Lessee?

Pros, Cons, and Roadmap to Success

You will
learn about:

Since the implementation of ASC 842 and IFRS 16, numerous publications and webinars have advocated for outsourcing lease management, including data abstraction, managed services for accounting, and other lease lifecycle functions.

However, for companies exploring the risks and opportunities of building an internal center of excellence (CoE) or centralizing certain functions, there is limited guidance on the many considerations involved.

Given the varied processes involving multiple stakeholders across different divisions and geographies, each with specific skill sets, this can be particularly challenging.

This webinar will explore those considerations unique to lessees, with a particular focus on people and technology, using data and accounting to drive change. This extends to lease accountants and the financial close, which is where this webinar will be centered.
