BLACKLINE PLATFORM ENHANCEMENTS TO BE UNVEILED AT INTHEBLACK 2017 IN LA

New User Interface and Dashboards for Reporting, Enhanced Transaction Matching and New Levels of Connectivity and Integration to Further Enable Continuous Accounting

LOS ANGELES – Nov. 15, 2017 – BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL), a leading provider of financial automation solutions that enable Continuous Accounting, today announced updates to its flagship cloud platform designed to further enable Finance & Accounting departments to transform their operations and adopt a true Continuous Accounting model. The new features will be unveiled this week at BlackLine’s global user conference InTheBlack North America 2017: The Accounting & Finance Innovation Summit in Los Angeles.

Highlights of BlackLine’s updated platform functionality include:

- Visual Reporting To Drive Finance Performance Management – Following significant enhancements to facilitate real-time report creation and validation throughout 2017, Finance and Accounting teams using BlackLine can now visualize their data in unique ways to quickly identify and uncover business insights. New charting and visualization functionality enables companies to better analyze the quality, timeliness and accuracy of their accounting results, uncover potential risks in their data, and more effectively measure team effectiveness.

- Enhanced Automation for Transaction Reconciliation – BlackLine Transaction Matching helps organizations embed intelligent automation into their most manual processes, empowering accounting teams to focus only on exceptions and anomalies. The latest enhancements deliver user-driven, flexible business rules to increase automated matches while better equipping the broader team to help resolve and explain unmatchedtransactions quickly.

- Connectivity andIntegration (APIs + Smart Close Integration) –This release brings new levels of connectivity and integration so organizations can further centralize and streamline critical accounting and close activities. New public APIs (application program interfaces) enable deeper integration with other business processes and systems, so all stakeholders—from auditors to controllers to the CFO—have even greater access to timely and relevant information. In addition, Smart Closeintegration allows customers to track their SAP Smart Close tasks and run reports directly within BlackLine.

The company has also improved compliance and controls functionality across the entire platform.

“Through customer-focused events such as InTheBlack, we are constantly soliciting end user feedback – looking for ways to continuously improve their experience with updates to features such as reporting that could actually help them surface potential risks—and that will ultimately help them achieve unprecedented control, visibility and efficiency across their Finance and Accounting organizations,” said Therese Tucker, CEO of BlackLine. “We’ve already been hearing from customers that the visual element of our reporting capability is like nothing they’ve ever seen in an accounting software product. We expect this to be a significant differentiator for us.”

The above features and updates are currently available in the latest release of BlackLine’s financial automation platform.

ITB North America 2017 is taking place Wednesday to Saturday, November 15-18th, at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE. For more nformation, go here.
