“I can’t imagine our close without BlackLine” | BlackLine Review

“Changed the way we close as a company”

We use the Account Reconciliations, Journal Entry, and Task Management products, and are currently implementing the Transaction Matching product. The implementation and use of these solutions have allowed us to take significant manual processes out of our close and reduce our close by three to four days. We anticipate further improvement through Transaction Matching—taking high-volume comparison of data sets out of our hands.

“BlackLine is a great tool”  | BlackLine Review

“Increased efficiency for account reconciliations”

BlackLine’s paperless account reconciliations allow for workflow approvals that are fast and efficient. This time saver is extremely valuable during the busy month-end close process. Additionally, the creative use of different templates means that the majority of our account reconciliations can be auto-certified. The workload for every team member has decreased significantly since the implementation of BlackLine!
