What is a Virtual Close?

A virtual close is the successful monitoring and execution of period-end financial close processes in a distributed environment. A virtual close means accounting and finance teams can collaborate from anywhere to unify data and processes across disparate systems, with visibility and reporting on all activities, to be able to close with confidence in uncertain times. BlackLine provides a foundation for accounting teams to adapt quickly while delivering a timely, complete, and accurate virtual close.
