Many companies face the task of handling large numbers of contracts with different purposes, stakeholders and implications for the company. This is usually done by expensive human experts in an error-prone process. For instance, the IFRS 16 reform has brought about fundamental changes for lessees. In addition to that, the assessment and analysis of the leases is a time-consuming task. The high number of leases as well as local specifications in leasing such as currency and language make analyzing these contracts highly complex.
Furthermore, the contracts are for the most part not digitalized and extracting the information necessary to estimate the exposure requires a lot of manual work. It is therefore difficult for companies to get an overview of their leasing arrangements and the respective conditions.
KPMG’s solutions for cognitive document processing exploit modular cognitive capabilities and include methods, tools, approaches and resources that focus on improving the transparency, consistency, efficiency and time needed to make decisions and take action.
