BLACKLINE TO HOST INAUGURAL PARTNER COUNCIL MEETING DURING 1ST ANNUAL SUMMER PARTNER CONFERENCE IN LA

LOS ANGELES July 13, 2011 – In an effort to better understand and respond to the needs of partners and their clients, financial software provider BlackLine Systems has formed the ‘BlackLine Partner Council’ – an appointed group of advisors that will meet several times each year to share expertise, feedback and best practices surrounding the implementation of the BlackLine Financial Close Software Suite.

The inaugural meeting of the BlackLine Partner Council, which will be comprised of senior executives from global consulting and advisory firms such as Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and Resources Global Professionals, will be held next week in Los Angeles when BlackLine hosts the company’s first Annual Summer Partner Conference.

BlackLine expects the Partner Council to strengthen the collaboration between BlackLine and its consulting and implementation partners with the overall goal of developing a world-class Partner Network.

The first-ever BlackLine Annual Summer Partner Conference will be a 4-day event designed to provide partners with the knowledge they need to expand their service offerings surrounding BlackLine. During the conference, those who are interested can take courses to become ‘BlackLine Certified Implementation Professionals’ – giving them the tactical tools and know-how to implement the No. 1 account reconciliation solution on the market. For those who are already certified to implement BlackLine, a special advanced course track will be offered.
