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.

BlackLine

BlackLine is well suited for an organization dealing with high volumes of data or with multiple divisions seeking for integrated reporting and more dynamic analysis and data tracking. It may not be as appropriate for smaller companies with manageable data requirements. Much of the functionality that BlackLine offers may be found as part of a company's existing software packages, though perhaps not with as much functionality or customizability.

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

  • Task Management is straightforward. Ownership, review, and approval are straightforward and pretty easy to configure and follow.
  • Account Reconciliation works similarly. Supporting documents can be attached to a given rec to ease the audit. If balances change after approved, the approval is peeled back.
  • Integration with our financial system works seamlessly. Configured to run every 4 hours each day, it's helpful to know even when balances change, BlackLine is up-to-date.

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

  • Workflow tracking capability in the Compliance module.
  • The worksheet that is a UDF in the Compliance module could have better functionality. It doesn't have all the capabilities of true Excel, so we don't currently use it. It would be great if we could copy information (including formulas and formatting) into the worksheet.

This product is so user friendly. The support staff is so easy to work back & forth with on the blackline community site. The journal module is very easy to master & start using immediately. The account recon module is as well and very user friendly. I would recommend this product to anyone

I have not had to use support directly outside of Blackline U and the community (which is very effective!). I have been told by our main administrator who directed the implementation that he is extremely pleased with the support provided - especially as compared to other companies we have support contracts with.

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

BlackLine showed a commitment to continuous innovation and improvement of their product. We are on this accounting transformation journey for the long-haul and we need a business partner that is committed to finding solutions to our problems - Including our problems today and our problems next year. BlackLine has a deep support team and an extensive online training resource that assists with onboarding.

Return on Investment

AccountMate

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

BlackLine

  • Matching for bank recs had the biggest impact, as it provided time savings of over 500 hours a month for a total of 30 accountants.
  • It improved our internal controls by having all accounts tracked, properly approved, all supporting documents attached, which helped to get them reconciled timely.
