BlackLine Accounting Process Automation solution improves the speed, accuracy, and reliability of the reconciliation to adjustment process by automating your routine and high-volume transactional processes. Through configurable, rules-based certification and matching workflows, controlled roles-based access, and automated journal validation, creation, and posting, organizations can put an end to mundane tasks and enable teams to apply their valuable skills to larger issues that support strategic business objectives. And by leveraging a combination of data and process standardization, embedded internal controls, and real-time reporting and dashboards, accounting and finance leaders can continuously monitor and evaluate performance to drive further process optimization.
Standardize the reconciliation process and enable consistent verification of the correctness and appropriateness of balance sheets. Quickly compare GL, bank, and other data, investigate discrepancies, and attach supporting documents to substantiate account balances.
Automate detail-heavy reconciliations, such as bank reconciliations, credit card matching, intercompany reconciliations, and invoice-to-PO matching. Track open items and save time as they carry over from the previous periods’ reconciliations and clear or age automatically.
Centralize journal entry management to control creation, review, and approval of journals with electronic certification and supporting documents. Automate pre-posting validation to catch entry or logic errors, ensure accuracy, and eliminate GL and subledger rejections.
Analyze accounting data when and how you want to with reporting functionality that enables users to build custom views, adjust filters, add/ remove fields, and even pivot results. Save custom reports and surface new intelligence to provide strategic guidance to your business.
