Overall Satisfaction with BlackLine

We are trying to standardize our recs for all business units so they all look in sync. In addition, Blackline is tremendously helping us when it comes to our periodic audits. We are able to give the auditors access so they can pull any support they need, in turn reducing the time it takes for us to compile the data for them. Blackline is currently being used across our entire organization.
  • Helps with audits, you don't have to waste time pulling support for them.
  • Reduces the number of hours it takes to reconcile accounts. We went from it taking 3-4 days to 1 day for completing 109 recons. Many of which are auto-certified.
  • It serves as a one-stop shop for all our support. No need to go digging in your emails or shared folders.
  • It would help to expand a little more on the type of reports that can be ran.
  • Offer more hands on workshops for users to learn the product in dept.
  • Reconciliations Module
  • Dashboard overview
  • Ease of use
  • Reduced a significant amount of time for our users to complete recons
We did not explore options for other products. I used Blackline at prior companies so suggested it for my current company.

It's well suited for organizations that truly believe in automation. Also, it's best if multiple modules are purchased as they are all well integrated together. It truly makes a difference from just having one of their modules. It's probably not best suited if the company ends up using it as a data repository or just uploads existing recons as supporting items. Use the predefined templates to get the most out of it.
