LOS ANGELES – Nov. 14, 2019 – Financial controls and automation software leader BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL) has been rated highest in the Large and Global Organizations use cases in Gartner’s recently released 2019 Critical Capabilities for Cloud Financial Close Solutions* report.

The report examines the capabilities of 10 vendors/products to meet the needs of organizations in distinct use cases. BlackLine was ranked highest in the Large Enterprise and Global Enterprise use cases and scored No. 2 and No. 3 respectively for Upper Midsize and Business Unit use cases.
