Institute of Management Accountants to Feature BlackLine Systems, Deloitte, Pentair for Inside Talk

SESSION TO EMPHASIZE HOW ‘FINANCIAL CLOSE AUTOMATION’ CAN IMPROVE ACCURACY, EFFICIENCY IN CLOSE, REPORTING PROCESSES

LOS ANGELES – May 7, 2012 – Representatives from leading financial close software provider BlackLine Systems, along with global consulting advisory Deloitte and BlackLine client and global diversified industrial giant Pentair, will be the featured speakers on this week’s Inside Talk webinar series put on by the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA).

Automating a company’s account reconciliation and financial close processes by implementing technology can drastically improve operational efficiency, increase financial accounting and reporting reliability and reduce costs. This session, hosted by IMA with an industry overview from Deloitte and high-level solution briefing from BlackLine, will describe how ‘Financial Close Automation’ tools such as the BlackLine Financial Close Software Suite can help companies close with confidence and ensure balance sheet integrity.

A BlackLine Project Leader from Pentair will present a case study on the benefits the $3.5 billion public company has seen since implementing BlackLine.

The webinar is designed to inform IMA members how implementing technology to automate the traditionally manual, labor-intensive and spreadsheet-driven account reconciliation process can help them achieve a quicker and more accurate financial close. Attendees will leave the session with insight into how they can:

  • Close with confidence: have a faster, more efficient close cycle maintaining more control and visibility, while reducing risk

  • Automate and maintain control over the entire financial close process

  • Ensure timely, accurate and documented communications between all departments (accounting, finance, compliance, auditing, etc.)

  • Realize exceptional ROI in a very short timeframe

  • Improve the accuracy and timeliness of compliance reporting

Attendees also are eligible for CPE credits through the IMA which is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
