Austin, TX, April 10, 2018 – Accruent, the world’s leading provider of physical resource management solutions, today announced that Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC), has selected Accruent’s lease accounting software.
Brunswick Corporation (“Brunswick”) is a leading global designer, manufacturer, and marketer of recreation products including marine engines, boats, fitness equipment, and active recreation products with over 15,000 employees worldwide. As a multibillion-dollar company, Brunswick was focused on compliance with the new FASB/IFRS standards and ease-of-use with the lease accounting solution.
After seeking input from external auditors and analysts, Brunswick selected Accruent’s software because of key functionality such as multiple languages and control points, including security and configuration.
