BlackLine Surpasses 1,000-Client Mark
Agilent, Brightstar, eNett , Eventbrite, Fender, GoDaddy, Lord Suisse, RSA Group, Serta Simmons and Spotify embrace Modern Finance with BlackLine
LOS ANGELES, LONDON and SYDNEY – Jan. 21, 2015 — Leading finance controls and automation software company BlackLine has surpassed the 1,000-client mark as global companies accelerate adoption of the company’s cloud platform for finance controls and automation. A host of new mid-size and enterprise-level organizations join an already impressive list of BlackLine client companies around the world that are using the leading cloud platform to transform their existing Finance and Accounting departments into leading-edge Modern Finance organizations.
BlackLine provides a range of tightly integrated applications and packaged solutions that automate and accelerate the financial close and other key accounting and finance processes – from within a single, unified cloud-based platform. Leading companies of all sizes are now integrating finance controls and automation solutions as part of their efforts to transform legacy, back-office operations into world-class, Modern Finance organizations with greater efficiencies and reduced compliance risk.
Agilent Technologies, Eventbrite, Fender Musical Instruments, GoDaddy and Serta Simmons Bedding are just a few of the new BlackLine clients that have recently signed on in North America. BlackLine is also experiencing strong uptake in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and APAC (Asia-Pacific) regions, recently adding Lord Suisse, RSA Insurance Group and Spotify in Europe and Brightstar Logistics, eNett Services and Nuplex Industries in Australia. BlackLine was created to automate highly repetitive, manual accounting and finance tasks—tying up all the loose ends to liberate accountants to apply their talents to more strategic pursuits. The company’s introduction of its pioneering account reconciliation software in 2005 signified the development of an entirely new category of business technology, one erasing the drudgery, inefficiency and risk inherent in the previously manual, spreadsheet-based process, while offering unparalleled visibility into the underlying financial data.
Since then, BlackLine has added many new automated functions to its cloud-based technology platform, many created in tandem with the company’s enterprise and mid-market customers.
BlackLine is the leader in Enhanced Finance Controls and Automation software and the only provider today offering a completely unified cloud platform—built from a single code base—that supports the entire close-to-disclose process, as well as a host of other key accounting and financial processes. BlackLine’s Finance Controls and Automation Platform increases business efficiency and visibility, while ensuring the highest degree of balance sheet integrity. Delivered through a scalable and highly secure cloud model, BlackLine empowers more than 1,000 global companies to reduce the time and resources required to execute month-end closing with unparalleled accuracy, fueling confidence throughout the entire accounting cycle. With more than 100,000 users in over 100 countries, BlackLine complements existing Corporate Performance Management (CPM), Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.
Although BlackLine is ERP-agnostic, the BlackLine Financial Close Suite for SAP® Solutions is an SAP-endorsed business solution – joining the ranks of fewer than 40 other software offerings globally that are endorsed by the enterprise application software leader. BlackLine also is an SAP Gold Partner, Oracle Gold Partner and participates in the partner programs of NetSuite and several other ERP providers.
