FIVE. Lack of centralized procurement processes for non-real estate leases Procurement processes vary greatly f rom a centralized function to decentralized departmental level procurement, and everything in between. This can mean you don't know what you don't know when it comes to buried contracts and data sources. Service contracts and embedded leases are the main culprits, as real estate leases tend to be managed centrally in one system. Some companies may use the new lease accounting practices as a motivating factor to centralize procurement of equipment and services. SIX. Proprietary legacy data structures and technology lack adequate documentation You may have a legacy lease accounting software system with much of the data you need for lease accounting compliance, but there could be limited to no documentation about how the data is structured and how it can be properly extracted. Make sure that you select a lease administration and lease accounting partner who has experience with your legacy system and a documented and proven approach to data management. SEVEN. Heterogenous data sources and systems This can be a problem for organizations that manage real estate leases in a decentralized manner by operating company, geography, or department. The only way past this hurdle is a systematic rationalization of data so that all data aligns across every system. Again, here is where a lease administration and lease accounting software partner with a proven approach to data management is critical as you will need to transform data f rom the old legacy values to the new consolidated list of values.
