BlackLine Strengths

The cloud-based BlackLine platform automates the entire financial close process. The BlackLine suite of applications includes products and solutions for Balance Sheet Account Reconciliations, Task Management, Journal Entry, Transaction Matching, Variance Analysis, Consolidation Integrity Management, Reconciliation Management and Intercompany Transactions. The ease of integration allows users to send data from their ERP system to BlackLine as well as from BlackLine to their ERP to support and realize the accounting efficiencies gained from using BlackLine’s financial automation platform. In November 2018, BlackLine, Inc. has unveiled a new compliance product purpose-built for managing internal controls in large and midsize companies. The company will debut BlackLine Compliance, the latest addition to its flagship cloud platform, this week at its annual global user conference InTheBlack 2018: The Accounting & Finance Innovation Summit. Disparate systems and processes can cause inefficiencies and prevent proper evaluation of risk exposure. Without a solid technology solution, maintaining version control, identifying risk areas and communicating among business units becomes increasingly challenging and complex. With BlackLine Compliance, risks, policies and procedures, controls, issues and audit programs are integrated into a unified, cloud-based system. This accelerates and simplifies audits, consolidates project management and provides enhanced visibility over control activity. In October 2018, BlackLine, Inc. has released a connector for Oracle E-Business Suite designed to accelerate implementation of BlackLine’s flagship cloud platform and enable new customers to see a faster time-to-value. The new connector is available now to customers running E-Business Suite R12. The BlackLine Connector for Oracle is designed to automatically integrate Oracle E-Business Suite financial data into BlackLine’s cloud financial close solution. BlackLine’s newest connector supports a wide range of Oracle data, such as GL balances, subledgers, GL transactional data, and currency rates, enabling users to easily pull data by ledger, company, account, cost center, and other segment types into BlackLine for account balance and/or transactional reconciliation. In January 2016, BlackLine announced that its cloud platform for Finance Controls and Automation is the first to enable ‘Continuous Accounting’ across the enterprise.
