of executives will increase spending on process automation and technology to support the detection of risks.

Expanding F&A roles, new expectations from stakeholders, and evolving regulatory requirements continue to place unsustainable demands on F&A functions. Yet, regulatory compliance cannot be ignored or deprioritized, as noncompliance can carry serious repercussions. Add to that increased individual accountability, and noncompliance is both a corporate and personal concern.

Moreover, accounting standards and regulations like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), IFRS, IAS, GAAP, GLoBE, and BEPS introduce a tremendous amount of complexity and compliance risk. And with emerging topics like ESG, cybersecurity, and clawbacks, the costs of noncompliance have never been higher.

Companies can leverage technology solutions like BlackLine to embed best practices and significantly reduce risk to better maintain compliance.

Standardize Processes & Elevate Controls

Traditional compliance processes are typically manual, fragmented, siloed, and ad-hoc, leaving a lot of room for error.

BlackLine enables companies to solidify internal control systems by embedding policies and procedures into workflows. With the ability to seamlessly link controls to related risks, narratives, and projects, organizations can ensure compliance across records and processes.

Centralize Documentation & Enhance Visibility

Significant effort is required to manage initiatives across systems, business units, locations, and stakeholders.

With BlackLine, organizations can attach and store all supporting documentation and aggregate explanations in one location and report on status, incomplete items, and other KPIs with purpose-built dashboards and reports to enable real-time visibility. This gives stakeholders self-service access to tasks, projects, supporting documents, and other activities—providing a single source of truth and promoting audit efficiency.

Increase Efficiency & Realign F&A Resources

While finance and accounting roles have expanded to include more business partnership and strategy, the office of the CFO must continue to deliver complete and accurate results that are compliant with increasingly complex and changing regulations—often with pressure to do it faster and with greater transparency.

BlackLine replaces error-prone, reactive processes with a proactive, preventive approach that strengthens key controls and enables more timely business insights so your teams can focus on higher-value activities, such as maintaining regulatory compliance.

Take control of regulatory compliance.
