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.”

Accounting Manager, Global Manufacturing Company

Save Time, Improve Balance Sheet Integrity & Reduce Risk

Account Analysis refocuses your valuable accounting resources on exceptions and anomalies.

Increase Visibility & Focus Your Work

With categorization capabilities supported by rules-based automation and integration with BlackLine Transaction Matching, Account Analysis delivers a perfect set of capabilities that support transaction-level analysis.

Get a clear and accurate view into transactions that require attention by automatically categorizing open transactions by the same type of event or activity (e.g., aged, non-aged, and at-risk transactions).

Enhance Risk Management

Minimize internal control weaknesses with proper handling of aged transactions that trend over time, based on automatic data carry-forward to subsequent periods. All transaction-level information and attributes are carried forward into the next accounting period.

Improve Productivity & Quality

Use rules-driven automation to reduce the time spent monitoring aging transactions, following up to correct potential issues, and checking progress toward resolution. Address the process from end to end, allowing for a continuous approach that minimizes risk and maximizes visibility in areas where transaction-level analysis is required:

  • Suspense

  • Clearing

  • Accounts Receivable

  • Subledger

  • Goods Received/Invoices Received (GR/IR)

  • Accruals

  • Accounts Payable

  • Intercompany
