Compliance

Elevated Control in the Cloud

In today’s increasingly complex operating and regulatory environment, the expectations around audit and control management are shifting. Compliance and internal audit teams can no longer be reactionary. They must be proactive in identifying and monitoring risk. Faced with expanding scope and demand for efficiency, there’s never been a better time to increase control.
Close the gap between control performance and attestation with BlackLine Compliance—an integrated, cloud-based solution for identifying risk and executing control workflows.

Both configurable and flexible, and standardized and consistent, BlackLine Compliance is a one-stop shop for maintaining RCMs, managing PBC requests, performing audits such as SOX 302 and 404, and more.

With real-time intelligence into your compliance program, you can drive value-adding recommendations and achieve strategic risk initiatives.

Global Accessibility & Standardization

Unify all compliance documentation, projects, and stakeholders in one globally accessible, cloud-based system to maximize visibility. Link controls to related risks, narratives, and projects, and ensure version control across records. Benefit from a central command center to perform control testing, analyze supporting information, and identify issues, all while effectively managing workflows and communicating among teams with ease.

This ensures end-to-end financial close management and accounting automation, and drives better decision-making across the business.
