BlackLine provide a number of financial automation products which combined form their Finance Controls and Automation Platform. These products are designed to automate processes associated with financial close and reconciliation, as well as management of the internal controls environment. BlackLine Financial Close Management offers four main feature areas: Account Reconciliations, Task Management, Transaction Matching, and Journal Entry.
With the Account Reconciliations tools provided by BlackLine you can compare data from multiple systems and locations to reconcile the account balance across all balance sheet accounts. Features allow you to allocate duties to accounting teams and define the account reconciliation process. The Task Management feature offers real-time dashboards and advanced reporting for complete visibility and insight into task progress. An online, task-associated document repository keeps all task attachments in one place.
Transaction matching by BlackLine lets you manage multiple transaction types, from Bank to Credit Card, to Investment Transactional Matches, identifying unmatched transactions. The Journal Entry feature lets you create, review and approve journals, certifying and storing them with their supporting documentation. These journals can then be posted automatically to the general ledger, in batch at a scheduled time or on demand.
We started using it to replace our old client-server based software to support the month-end GL reconciliation process for various entities in our global company.
Due to the cloud technology it is available from anywhere. It could be really useful if you should manage GL reconciliation for many entities with different ERPs (it was our case) Easy to use interfaces, very good support. Can support the internal or external audit procedure and can reduce its cost. Auto-certification is sophisticated with several customization possibilities.
The implementation was a bit longer than expected (it was also because of our internal resources). With our current setup line level info cannot be loaded, so Excel sheets - as attachments - are remained after go live.
Since SAP has been integrated with BlackLine, reconciliations every day+5 of the month end processes are a lot easier. Variances and discrepancies are easily dealt with. Blackline has only been limited to its functions as well as the real-time processing of data.
It is a web-based application for performing account balances reconciliation which can be easily integrated with other financial software such as SAP.
The software is limited to reconciliations and intercompany transactions wherein the vast majority of software are investing on in-memory capacity and cloud for more flexible transactions.
It provides visibility and consistency to balance sheet recs. Fairly easy to use. Several different templates available pre-built.
Some of the different screens have the Save button in different places which can be a bit frustrating.
I like how easy it is to see unidentified balances for each account from the main page, giving you a screenshot of where to spend your time. I used it mostly for insurance amortizations, and the schedules make it easy to do once entered, and the balances closes on the day indicated.
Not a big deal but small functional things such as having to save a schedule and then clicking cancel in order to exit out. It's not intuitive to click on cancel if you want to exit after making a change.
Having all the financial and accounting work/evidence kept at one place for auditing
The audit trail functionality that is system certified and option to allow auditors to review closing activities like monthly bank reconciliation, monthly payroll registers, monthly meeting minutes, etc.
The useful interface's design isn't as fluid as one would like but you get use to it after a using it as your day to day work.
