About Cradle

Cradle is a lease accounting software designed to help streamline the entire lease management lifecycle, from initial recognition and modification to financial reporting. Administrators can add custom fields in legal contracts, store documents in a centralized repository, and utilize the search functionality to retrieve specific files from the database.

Organizations can grant role-based access permissions to employees and create personalized user profiles with details including name, email, and company. Cradle allows accountants to handle financial operations in compliance with IFRS 16 and ASC 842 standards. It also lets users access income statements, balance sheets, or disclosures and gain an overview of key metrics through actionable analytics.

Using Cradle, businesses can maintain a record of journal entries related to asset retirement obligations, security deposits, leasehold improvements, and more. Other features include net present value (NPV) calculation, forecasting, data export, general ledger, and team collaboration.

Cradle - Lease accounting software

Fantastic. Everything has gone to plan, the software does what it's required to do without a fault and it's very fast.


Accounting for my leased assets now takes minutes and I have the peace of mind that the calculations are correct. Since using Cradle the time spent on my month-end close for lease accounting has been dramatically reduced.

Cradle is also very easy to use, so there's no need to familiarize yourself or re-train your staff members when you haven’t used an aspect of the software e.g. modification accounting.


Since signing-up, Cradle has already released a number of features that have greatly helped my lease accounting/management. I appreciate the fact Cradle not only take on my feedback but roll-out functionality to specifically address these points. Noting this, there are some additional features I’d like e.g. lessor accounting. However, it's been communicated that will be rolled out in the coming months.

Cradle has been a joy to work with. Being a smaller company, they have no red tape and our queries with dealt with promptly and efficiently. They were able to make custom enhancements with ease and have been very helpful and instrumental in our success for transition to IFRS 16. Would highly recommend.


Does exactly what we need it to do. It is straight forward and easy to use even for the most basic user. Implementation was very fast and seamless. Able to roll out to individual divisions with ease.


Consolidation and FX functionality would be nice to have, but was not a critical factor for us. Help menus could be more intuitive, with better field descriptions.
