Account Analysis

Automatically reconcile and categorize high-volume reconciliations and free your valuable resources to focus on strategic initiatives.

Analyzing account balances is critical to assessing balance sheet health and informing key business decisions. Quality analysis involves transaction-level detail. This means the process is often spreadsheet-driven, manual, and time-consuming.

BlackLine Account Analysis is designed to give you a greater level of transparency, allowing for deeper examination, categorization, and resolution of open transactions. As a solution within BlackLine Account Reconciliations, Account Analysis applies rules-driven automation to incoming transactions, accurately categorizing and flagging those that require further analysis. This enables timely and effective management of aged and other at-risk activities.

“We like that Account Analysis gives us the ability to review hundreds/thousands of transactions in a logical, easy-to- use, efficient way. It enforces true analysis by the preparer instead of bypassing important details and allows us to load critical balance and activity before we close the books—so we can react to issues sooner before the numbers are final.”
