Nature of Business and Basis of Presentation Nature of Business and Basis of Presentation
Qumu Corporation ("Qumu" or the "Company") provides the tools to create, manage, secure, distribute and measure the success of live and on-demand video for enterprises. The Qumu platform enables global organizations to drive employee engagement, increase access to video, and modernize the future workplace by providing a more efficient and effective way to share knowledge. Qumu's customers, which include some of the world’s largest organizations, leverage the Qumu platform for a variety of cloud, on-premise and hybrid deployments. Use cases include, but are not limited to, CEO and executive town halls, self-service webcasting, sales enablement, training, employee onboarding, internal communications, product releases and training, regulatory compliance and customer engagement. The Company and its channel partners market Qumu's products to customers primarily in North America, Europe and Asia.
The Company views its operations and manages its business as one segment and one reporting unit. Factors used to identify the Company's single operating segment and reporting unit include the financial information available for evaluation by the chief operating decision maker in making decisions about how to allocate resources and assess performance. The Company markets its products and services through regional sales representatives and independent distributors in the United States and international markets.
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited and have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Pursuant to such rules and regulations, certain financial information and footnote disclosures normally included in a complete set of financial statements have been condensed or omitted. However, in the opinion of management, the financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and results of operations and cash flows of the interim periods presented. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Certain reclassification have been made to prior period revenue in order to conform to the current period presentation. During the quarter ended September 30, 2021, the Company reclassified revenue recognized for term software license agreements from service revenue to software licenses and appliances revenue, similar to perpetual software licenses. These term software licenses have significant standalone functionality and, subsequent to delivery of the software, Qumu's activities do not substantively change the functionality and do not significantly affect the use of the software delivered. The reclassifications had no effect on previously reported stockholders' equity, net loss or net cash flows.
Revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 as reported and as reclassified were as follows:

Capitalized Development Costs
The Company capitalizes certain development costs related to our sales platform during the application development stage as long as it is probable the project will be completed and the software will be used to perform the function intended. Capitalized software development costs are recorded as part of property and equipment, net. Costs related to preliminary project activities and post-implementation activities are expensed as incurred. Capitalized software development costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over the software’s estimated useful life, which is generally three years, and amortization is recorded in operating expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. The Company evaluates the useful lives of these assets on an annual basis and tests for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances occur that could impact the recoverability of these assets. The Company capitalized $139,000 of software development costs during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. No software development costs were capitalized during the nine months ended September 30, 2020.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing exceptions within the general principles of Topic 740 regarding the calculation of deferred tax liabilities, the incremental approach for intraperiod tax allocation, and calculating income taxes in an interim period. In addition, the ASU adds clarifications to the accounting for franchise tax (or similar tax) which is partially based on income, evaluating tax basis of goodwill recognized from a business combination, and reflecting the effect of any enacted changes in tax laws or rates in the annual effective tax rate computation in the interim period that includes the enactment date. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2021, prospectively, and the adoption of this standard did not have a material impact to the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. The purpose of the amendment is to simplify how an entity is required to test goodwill for impairment by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. Step 2 measures a goodwill impairment loss by comparing the implied fair value of a reporting unit’s goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2021, prospectively, and the adoption of this standard did not have a material impact to the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which supersedes current guidance requiring recognition of credit losses when it is probable that a loss has been incurred. The standard requires the establishment of an allowance for estimated credit losses on financial assets, including trade and other receivables, at each reporting date. The ASU will result in earlier recognition of allowances for losses on trade and other receivables and other contractual rights to receive cash. The Company adopted this guidance effective January 1, 2021, prospectively, and the adoption of this standard did not have a material impact to the consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40). This update amends the guidance on convertible instruments and the derivatives scope exception for contracts in an entity's own equity and improves and amends the related EPS guidance for both Subtopics. This standard is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not believe the impact of adopting this standard will be material to its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
