BlackLine is the world’s most trusted solution for Finance Controls and Automation.Nearly 2,000 companies, across all industries and in more than 130 countries, trust BlackLine software to automate and manage complex, manual and repetitive accounting processes, ensuring balance sheet integrity and confidence in their financial statements. The BlackLine Finance Controls and Automation platform helps organisations to fill in the gaps left by ERP and CPM systems and thereby strengthen controls, lower compliance risks, and introduce greater efficiencies and visibility into every step of the accounting process – including financial close, reconciliation management, journal entry management, intercompany transaction management, and controls assurance.
BlackLine enables clients to move beyond the antiquated record-to-report process and helps accountants and finance professionals work smarter and more efficiently with a new approach known as Continuous Accounting. Continuous Accounting represents a dramatic shift in the way organisations manage the accounting function, with automation and controlled workflows allowing tasks typically performed during the period-end to instead be embedded within day-to-day activities. The time previously spent by staff reconciling and verifying data that had built up over the period, can now be better spent performing analysis and examining trends and their impact. The company has also been named by Gartner as a Leader for Cloud Financial Corporate Performance Management (FCPM) Solutions, with Gartner positioning BlackLine in the Leaders Quadrant of its recently released 2017 Magic Quadrant for FCPM.
