BlackLine

BlackLine has been well suited for our organizational and integration needs. It ties very well with JDE and allows for the negation of manual data entry. We simply have to allow the systems to talk to each other and our recons are easily done. However, we do have manual audits performed monthly on certain processes as the importing system can be particular about commas.

Pros

BlackLine

  • One central place for our reconciliations - we're able to see all of our accounts that have balances so we know what reconciliations we need to perform.
  • Easy to navigate - each area is cleared labeled so there is less confusion on where you need to go for specific areas.
  • Works real time with our Netsuite ERP - balances can refresh in a matter of minutes so we are always working with live data.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

  • UiPath is very simple to learn.
  • Any type of application can be automated (Desktop Application, Web Application and also applications reachable only via remote technologies such as Citrix, Remote Desktop and so on).
  • The writing of a process code takes place entirely through the use of objects. In the event that there were no objects capable of solving a particular problem, it is possible to use some languages of the .net platform such as: VB.net, C#.
  • It is easy to scale the solution by adding more robots to run a process in case the solution requires more performance in the future.
  • It can also be used by functional analysts to design the flow to be automated.
  • An academy is available online where basic and advanced courses can be taken. It is also possible to take a completely free basic certification.

Cons

BlackLine

  • Former colleagues recurring comments on reconciliations are not able to be removed
  • If a preparer's name is changed on a reconciliation, they become the preparer named in all historical reconciliations, and we lose the historical data. Sometimes we may go back to the preparer of a particular month with questions, but we would lose the ability to do that.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

  • As I mentioned, Excel automation is not very effective, there are a number of packages to add, but there is nothing as smooth as a good macro.
  • Working with selectors is certainly challenging and UiPath does a good job with that, but there is room for improvement since the interface could be smarter in selecting the right attributes and warn the user if something is not properly setup.

This platform has so much potential and have been garnering a lot of attention by proving benefits in terms of saving operational and manpower costs.

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.

It's an easy to maintain and easy to use RPA Tool. It has a relatively low learning curve when compared to other RPA tools in the market. That is mostly due to it's Academy where the bulk of engineers gather their information from. And their Community Forum, is outstanding with support from around the world and almost, if not all, every topic imaginable in the RPA field.
The Community Edition is updated on a regular basis, and last year they even managed to release a build every month!
The Orchestrator, Platform, Go!, Academy is cloud based which makes access to information and data very easy.

My conversations with vendor representatives and our account managers have all been very positive. They provide solution suggestions that are tailored to our organization and requirements. Questions are answered quickly. The company seems genuinely interested in seeing our organization succeed, not only in the implementation and use of their product but also financially.

UiPath RPA has an exceptional studio interface. It has been a year and so since I am using UiPath RPA. Whether it is some my personal task to scrape information & links from the Journal or find a specific character string from multiple PDF collection using OCR, UiPath RPA has made its roots to our technological ecosystem

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.

You will have to meet up with your final users, approver, internal auditor and accounting policy holder. Everyone has to agree. When you have a well written process, workflow, policy, approval requirement, and control, your implementation process will be much easier

Alternatives Considered

BlackLine

I have not used any products similar to Blackline. However, Excel does offer many similar functionalities to Blackline in terms of reconciling accounts. Blackline offers many benefits over simply using Excel. The reconciliations are organized and easy to find, and they roll over each month on their own. They include the ability to auto-certify if they meet the criteria that your team selects. They also include an audit trail of documentation and approval for each step.

As compared to other products, we require programming knowledge and concepts to work but UiPath is for everyone. It provides us extensive event logging at various stages and effective exception handling for applications and business. It increases our agility and enhances the overall productivity further by using the source control SVC. The solution that we implemented is also very scalable in terms of incorporating new requirements.
The open source tools require lots of IT effort in order to set up and maintain over time. UiPath is like a complete package and customer service is also active in terms of solving issues arising while automating procession on a day to day basis.
