Ledgers is a product that enables double entry accounting for the platforms on Modern Treasury. The Ledgers API can be used independently of the rest of the functionality in Modern Treasury. There are also powerful links for tying payments activity in Modern Treasury to information on your ledger.
Ultimately, the goal with having a ledger is to keep track of the money in your business. Having an immutable, double-entry ledger is the gold standard for businesses with complicated or high velocity payment flows.
