Get results quickly.

Take advantage of prebuilt model templates – or use your existing impairment models, regardless of platform – for a faster implementation. A user-friendly dashboard and out-of-the-box visualizations make it simple to capture data, execute models and generate reports. You can easily customize accounting rules and data flows, and quickly produce results to assess the financial impacts of the new impairment standards.
