Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP), a global provider of business outsourcing and human capital management solutions, was faced with the challenge of equipping its workforce with the latest technology in a cost-efficient manner. The company considered leasing equipment as a viable option, but the management of thousands of contracts quickly and simply was a daunting task. The ever-shortening development cycles of IT equipment also posed a risk of turning capital expenditure into sunk costs. Additionally, ADP was seeking to improve its existing lease management approach by enhancing insight into costs, expiration dates, and maintenance. The company was also preparing for new, more complex Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB) standards that would require all leases to be added to the balance sheet.
About The Customer
Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP) is a global provider of business outsourcing and human capital management solutions. The company is headquartered in Roseland, NJ, and serves over 630,000 customers in 104 countries. In fiscal 2015, ADP generated revenues of USD 10.9 billion and employed around 55,000 people worldwide. The company is committed to equipping its workforce with the latest technology and sought a cost-efficient solution to manage thousands of equipment leases.
ADP adopted IBM's lease accounting solution, IBM® TRIRIGA®, to streamline its lease accounting and management processes. This centralized, automated solution transformed processes across the company by triggering a workflow linking the procurement, compliance, and accounting departments every time a new lease was entered into the system. Initially, ADP uploaded leases for the IT solutions supporting its US operations, which numbered approximately 100,000 assets. The company is in the process of adding leases for its Canadian locations and plans to include its European operations within the year. This solution has not only automated the calculation of ADP's forecasted payment schedule but also reduced errors and improved tracking of leases.

Predictive Maintenance for Industrial Chillers
For global leaders in the industrial chiller manufacturing, reliability of the entire production process is of the utmost importance. Chillers are refrigeration systems that produce ice water to provide cooling for a process or industrial application. One of those leaders sought a way to respond to asset performance issues, even before they occur. The intelligence to guarantee maximum reliability of cooling devices is embedded (pre-alarming). A pre-alarming phase means that the cooling device still works, but symptoms may appear, telling manufacturers that a failure is likely to occur in the near future. Chillers who are not internet connected at that moment, provide little insight in this pre-alarming phase.
