BlackLine is the world’s most trusted solution for Finance Controls and Automation, enabling clients to move beyond the antiquated record-to-report process with a new approach known as Continuous Accounting. Continuous Accounting utilises automation and controlled workflows, allowing tasks typically performed during the period-end to instead be embedded within day-to-day activities. Over 2,400 companies in more than 150 countries trust BlackLine software to automate and manage complex, manual and repetitive accounting processes - with many organisations relying on BlackLine to play an integral role in their finance transformation initiatives and shared services environments. Filling in the gaps left by ERP and CPM systems, BlackLine introduces greater efficiencies, control and visibility into every step of the accounting process – including financial close, reconciliation management, journal entry management, intercompany transaction management, and controls assurance. The company has again this year been named by Gartner as a Leader in its 2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Close Solutions and as a pioneer in the cloud market for enhanced financial control and automation.
