Inaugural BlackLine ASEAN/Asia user conference to feature speakers from Deloitte, plus local clients Cold Storage and NETS

LOS ANGELES and SINGAPORE – July 11, 2018 – Following on the success of its recent event in Sydney, financial automation software provider BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL) is adding a second Asia-Pacific regional user conference. The inaugural InTheBlack Asia will take place next week in Singapore and is designed to serve the company’s growing base of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and northern Asia customers.

InTheBlack Asia 2018: The Accounting & Finance Innovation Summit (ITB Asia) will highlight best practices for accelerating the financial close and handling intercompany transactions as companies increasingly seek to transform their accounting and finance organizations. The conference will feature speakers from regional BlackLine customers, including Cold Storage and NETS, with Finance & Accounting (F&A) professionals from each sharing best practices learned by automating critical F&A processes using BlackLine’s cloud platform.

A key theme for this year’s conference is Continuous Accounting, an advance over the traditional record-to-report process where real-time automation, controls and period-end tasks are embedded within day-to-day activities enabling companies to continually capture, validate and analyze financial data in a timely and precise manner. Attendees of ITB Asia will learn first-hand how leading-edge organizations that adopt a Continuous Accounting model are transforming their F&A departments. Reconciliation of intercompany accounts also will be highlighted.

In addition to local customers and BlackLine executives, presentations will be given by thought leaders from partners such as Deloitte.

Representatives from other BlackLine client companies from around the region are registered to attend, joining BlackLine’s team of experts in Singapore. As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to strengthen its global operations to provide clients everywhere with superior service, BlackLine has designed the event as an interactive session for attendees in the region to share their ideas on how F&A can get the most value out of the BlackLine platform.

Both new and experienced users who attend the Singapore sessions will be given an opportunity to:

  • Learn best practices from BlackLine’s team of experts and other customers

  • Hear how experienced users from other regional companies creatively use BlackLine

  • Preview upcoming software enhancements

  • Directly influence the product direction going forward

BlackLine currently has more than 150 customers based in the Asia-Pacific region, including ANZ Banking Group, Cold Storage, Coopervision, DuluxGroup, NETS, Qantas Airways, Scoot Tigerair and Tabcorp Holdings, with sales, professional services and technical support team employees based in Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore.
