A better way to do lease accounting

Automate arduous tasks that come with complying with the new lease accounting standards. Standardizing your lease financial reporting process across your entire organization not only drastically reduces the opportunity for manual error but also streamlines your financial reporting.

Automate Compliance

Significantly reduce your time spent managing and accounting for your lease portfolio. Cradle automatically does complex present value calculations, modifications, journal entries and all of the required financial reporting needed to stay compliant.

Engineered for your portfolio
The best software is meaningless if it can not handle your portfolio requirements. At Cradle, we understand this. We have engineered our software to offer ultimate flexibility, no matter the payment structure, complexity of modifications, or nuance reporting requirements.
Instant financial reports
Once your lease portfolio is added, the financial reporting requirements are done according to the applicable lease accounting standard.
Foreign exchange accounting
Enter your applicable foreign exchange rates, and all foreign-dominated leases will be converted to your functional currency in accordance with IAS 21 (IFRS) and ASC 830 (US GAAP).

Know the status of your portfolio

Whether it’s receiving an email reminder to follow up regarding the renewal of a leased asset, or a request from the CFO to know the current impact of the consolidated portfolio on the financial statements—you can do it all with Cradle.

Configurable lease management
We understand that every company's lease administration needs are different. Having a standardized experience would fall short of our customer's needs. This is why we have an incredibly robust and customizable lease management system. Your lease administration can be tailored to suit your portfolio requirements.
Work together
Cradle brings the benefits of software to lease accounting. By replicating a company's corporate structure, it allows ultimate flexibility in how teams can work together on portfolios while maintaining oversight. Have a foreign subsidiary with a sizable lease portfolio? Add a superuser to that subsidiary and let them handle that specific lease portfolio.
Ease of use
There is more to choosing the correct lease accounting software than just functionality. If the software is strenuous to learn and unintuitive to use, it can often be more time-consuming than just doing it manually. We've designed our software specifically for how an accountant operates. With our intuitive user interface, you can get started with little to no training.

Is Cradle worth the money?

It comes down to how you value your time. Lease accounting can easily take hundreds, if not thousands of hours, depending on the portfolio's size. By using Cradle, you can streamline your month-end reporting requirements to be done in minutes instead. It even removes the risk of manual calculation errors. Another benefit is that it allows teams from multiple business areas to work together. Not to mention the ability to have all your critical information regarding your lease portfolio at your fingertips.

Why Cradle?

With our lease accounting functionality combined with our reasonable pricing, we have a very compelling position in the market. A lease accounting software company should have two key ingredients, accountants and software engineers, and that's precisely what Cradle has. A company just full of accountants would lack the required knowledge to build software, and a company of just software engineers wouldn't know the accounting! Cradle was founded with a founder from each discipline.

We don't dance around pricing, nor make it difficult to see our software. All the information to make an informed buying decision is all available online as we're confident it's more than competitive.

What company size is your software for?

ASC 842, GASB 87, IFRS 16 & GASB 96 don't have different rules for different size companies. The same principle applies to our software. Cradle's lease accounting software can service an organization with one lease or multinational managing hundreds of leases that have teams throughout the world, leases in foreign currencies, subsidiaries with different functional currencies. Our customers are a testament to this. As long as you like super-fast, easy-to-use software, you've come to the right place.
