Global Accounting, Professional Services Firms Send Consultants from around the World To Attend BlackLine Implementation Certification Training

Calabasas, Calif. – Nov. 30, 2010 Consultants from as far away as The Netherlands and Puerto Rico were among those who convened in Los Angeles for the most recent ‘BlackLine Implementation Certification Training’ – a rigorous program that gives partners the skills they need to implement the BlackLine Financial Close Software Suite. These professionals now join a growing list of ‘BlackLine Certified Implementers.’

The BlackLine Implementation Certification Training spans an intensive multi-day agenda that equips partners with the tools and knowledge needed to deliver the same level of world-class service that companies have come to expect from BlackLine.

“I was looking for an automated account reconciliation tool that would integrate well with all ERP systems,” Pieter Geyer, team leader, Proxyon International, said. “Once I saw the functionality that BlackLine offers, I decided to come all the way from the Netherlands to attend the company’s recent partner training program.”

At the end of training, all participants are required to take an exam before being granted status as a BlackLine Certified Implementer. Those who pass are issued an official certificate of competency.

“The BlackLine Implementation Certification Training and time spent to come over was worth every Euro and more,” Geyer added. “The BlackLine team was very enthusiastic and dedicated to helping partners learn how to best help clients. I can’t wait to get my first client up and running on BlackLine.”

BlackLine offers Implementation Certification Training throughout the year. The company also offers custom scheduling and on-site sessions for partners who want to get certified sooner. For more information or to schedule a custom time, please contact Howard Goldstein at

Leading global accounting/consulting firms including Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and Resources Global Professionals are among those that have earned the distinction of being BlackLine-Certified. These industry giants are primarily assisting with implementations for BlackLine’s many Fortune 500 clients.
