BLACKLINE NAMED ‘BEST IN ENHANCED FINANCE CONTROLS & AUTOMATION SOFTWARE’ AT THE 2015 SOFTWARE AND TECHNOLOGY AWARDS

LOS ANGELES – Jan. 14, 2016 – BlackLine’s Finance Controls and Automation Platform has been named ‘Best in Enhanced Finance Controls & Automation (EFCA) Software for 2015’ at the recent Software & Technology Awards, presented earlier this month by Corporate America News, an independent news magazine aimed at CEOs and other top-tier management and decision makers across the United States.

EFCA comprises solutions that focus on improving financial processes and controls across the Finance & Accounting organization. According to global technology research leader Gartner, these solutions, which address “The Last Mile of Finance” and financial governance, have expanded beyond financial close and reconciliation management to include functionality currently missing from Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Corporate Performance Management (CPM) systems. In a 2014 report, Gartner listed BlackLine as a ‘Best of Breed’ provider for EFCA software.

Corporate America News’ Software & Technology Awards are dedicated to bringing to the forefront the most technologically ground-breaking and results-driven industry leaders in the United States. The awards highlight the cutting-edge individuals, departments and firms who, through their commitment, experience and willingness to push the boundaries of business-based technology, will shape and enhance the American business landscape for years to come.
