1031 patentThe original partners sought the involvement of KineticWorks to develop an industry-specific software design for e-LKE. In early 2002, KineticWorks was acquired by Accruit to continue the expansion of the unique software and like-kind exchange process. This advanced software continues to evolve so as to better serve the company’s vast array of potential customers (Exchange Manager for singles and also for programs). Accruit is also the only QI in the country with a patent process for Like-Kind Exchanges. *U.S. Patent No. 7,379,910, and other patents pending.


The company was formed in March of 2000 by industry pioneers Brent Abrahm and Todd Fisher.  In the beginning, the company operated as an Application Service Provider (ASP) and qualified intermediary (QI), for hosted software solutions based on “like-kind” exchanges. The orginal company was “e-LKE,” and its early accomplishments include the creation of one of the country’s first high-volume repetitive personal property 1031 like-kind exchange programs.
