Reimagine Journal Entry Management

Manual journal entries are critical and inevitable for every accounting organization. Yet, for most organizations, the process of creating, supporting, and certifying journal entries is time consuming, lacks standardization, and poses downstream audit challenges. With hundreds or thousands of entries each period, the traditional manual process is not sustainable.

BlackLine Journal Entry is a comprehensive solution that integrates with your ERPs and your other BlackLine financial close management solutions to centralize and automate the creation, validation, review, and posting of journal entries.

Centralize & Automate Processes

Spend less time on the process, gain more accuracy, and realign capacity to other critical work.

Manage journal entries from creation to posting through a central hub that synchronizes across ERPs, in real-time, to validate master data, post entries, and retrieve booking confirmations. Systematize journal entries with configurable rules and dynamic workflows, such as routing for approvals based on amount thresholds and roles. Auto-certify reasonable entries and reserve time for nuanced journal analysis.

Enhance Audit Readiness & Collaboration

Simply grant access instead of searching for supporting documents.

BlackLine Journal Entry ensures segregation of duties and embeds key control attributes within standard journal entry templates. An electronic audit trail automates and stores certifications and posting documents. Users can add supporting documentation in the cloud, and auditors have role-based read-only access that allows for self-service journal entry testing.

Empower Mobility & Modernize User Experience

Access, review, and approve journal entries from anywhere and everywhere.

Whether you're out of the office or on your way home, BlackLine Mobile has you covered. The BlackLine mobile app makes it easy for users to monitor journal entries across the organization. Receive instant notifications when a journal is ready for review and quickly certify it to keep the process moving.
