AccountMate

AccountMate is a great product for wholesale and distributors. It manages the inventory cycles comprehensively, from purchasing to stocking, to sales and delivery. There are a great many tools available to manage inventory, properties, and financials. The availability to have third-party add-ons offers even greater opportunities to meet the needs of the end-user.The system is not really suited for certain types of service industries: legal, medical, and those businesses that invoice on time.

I mainly use the Matching Module. BlackLine is very well suited for the Matching processes. Once you have been trained it is a powerful and user friendly tool that you can use to modify matches due to changes in your companies or third party files/sources. It has the ability to test changes and updates, in the Sandbox it is very critical in getting your updates/modifications fine tuned and correct.

Pros

AccountMate

  • Ease of use
  • Ability to easily adapt the solution to fit the needs of the end user
  • Integration of data across different platforms
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

BlackLine

  • Integrated reporting features are extremely helpful to do quick and customized analysis
  • Visibility to task and process status across the organization allows us to identify and focus on our biggest pain points and areas of improvement
  • Near seamless integration with existing reporting software and ERP systems makes it easier to use real-time data rather than waiting on periodic reports and processes to analyze data
David Tilton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

AccountMate

  • Custom reports: The current system uses Crystal Reports, which is a bit cumbersome.
  • True cloud-based solution is missing
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

BlackLine

  • The User Interface is clunky and strange to navigate. It's fluid somehow at the same time. Perhaps organization efforts would help.
  • Their Support organization could use training. I've had too many frustrating conversations because of (or about) basic communication skills. They're all very polite, in my experience, but lacking in basics (e.g. come prepared to a meeting/call). I've explicitly and constructively shared this with them with almost no change.

  • To continue to enjoy and leverage on the automation functionalities BlackLine offers for this process.
  • Make more gains on running this process efficiently and keep our Finance Teams on high-end value addition projects
  • With a foreseeable increase in transaction volumes when activities pick up, we need a tool we can really on to handle the volume

There are some processes that we currently use that cannot be done in BlackLine. Our users don't want to change their processes or learn new processes even though it would make their jobs easier. We have very few users who have adopted BlackLine fully, and management has not made it a requirement to use the application.

When needed they are there. In 3 years we haven't needed much with regards to support after our implementation. That being said I feel scheduled consulting and personal reach outs would go a long way to helping support customers as new features and opportunities are pushed out.

Trainings are available for all topics on the BlackLine U portal. These were incredibly helpful when first starting with BlackLine to get the hang of it. Trainings are useful for any module. I have personally used this to teach myself how to use the tasks and variance modules, which are now fully utilized by my organization. The support team is also very helpful in training our team on anything additional we have needed.

Change is something you deal with on any new implementation. Users were already experienced with SAP Gen template. This was a new way of doing things so education of everyone was critical to success. Selling folks on this was an easier way to do their job was the key to success

Alternatives Considered

AccountMate

We use AccountMate for a number of reasons, particularly its ease of use and the ability to customize any part of the system (with source code residing on the end-user system--a HUGE advantage).
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

BlackLine

The company is midsize, everything was performed manually before; Blackline was a great step in the proper direction. It was easy to adopt, reduced manual work, shortened the close time, and was very easy to use for everyone. The customer service is a pleasure to deal with.

Return on Investment

AccountMate

  • Allows us to quickly gain insight into the current and past performance of the company
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

BlackLine

  • BlackLine has given us a real time tracking for our balance sheet reconciliations which Management can use to track our month end and yearend closes.
  • Instead of having multiple Excel templates for various BS recs, we now have standard templates. Makes reviewing the recs easier and the Auditors have fewer questions during their yearend reviews.
