How IT can help your accounting function prepare for rev rec

Accounting standard ASC606 is a notable change to the way revenue is recognized and reported from contracts. Organizations have mostly managed to track and analyze revenue from contracts using a myriad of tools (spreadsheets!), and subsequently enter results into the GL when revenue was recognizable.
