Automate Financial Close Complexity to Provide Visibility and Real-Time Data
You’re facing big challenges. Fierce competition from the sharing economy, a global and local economy that is always in flux, 24/7 operations, and customers who want better rates and better service. So, you rely on automated tools and smart technology every day to give you the real-time, big picture of sales, staff, and demand. Yet every month, it still takes days to get the big picture on your month-end close. This means you can never be completely sure of the up-to-the-minute integrity of your balance sheet. Or who owns what task. Or even exactly where you are in the close. And your accountants spend too many hours entering data into spreadsheets, meaning there’s little time for more important, value-added work. BlackLine’s Finance Controls and Automation platform automatically imports data from bank files, POS systems, subledgers, and ERPs. Transactions are matched faster—one million per minute—yet with fewer errors, leaving accountants time to focus on analysis and discrepancies. And internal and external auditors can access records in real-time, from anywhere in the world, without asking for files or waiting on emails.
