UHY Advisors, BlackLine Systems Partner to Bring BlackLine Account Reconciliation Software to Fortune 500 Clients


LOS ANGELES – Oct. 13, 2011 – Leading professional services, management consulting and tax advisory firm UHY Advisors has partnered with financial software provider BlackLine Systems to bring BlackLine’s account reconciliation and financial close software to UHY’s mid-size and Fortune 500 client base.

“We’ve been implementing BlackLine’s software for more than five years now,” Frank Fenello, managing director, UHY Advisors, said. “At UHY, we help clients remove inefficiencies from their back office processes. BlackLine has been an extremely effective tool that helps our clients transform their accounting and finance functions by automating processes and eliminating manual activities.”

UHY is among a growing number of firms, including Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and Resources Global Professionals, to have several professionals who are ‘BlackLine Certified Implementation Professionals,’ having completed a comprehensive training course designed to give partners the necessary skills to implement the BlackLine Financial Close Software Suite.

BlackLine Implementation Certification Training spans an intensive multi-day course 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.

“Our Certified Implementation Professional partners are a critical implementation resource,” Therese Tucker, CEO of BlackLine, said. “Software by itself won’t improve a company’s finance organization or processes. We rely on partners such as UHY that have extensive experience in finance transformation to provide additional value to our clients.”
