Overall Satisfaction with BlackLine

We use BlackLine for tasks & recons in the accounting department. It's mainly used by the General Ledger team, and we also have users from the Tax team in the system. It really helps us organize and be able to easily see our progress in the month end close process. I joined the company after BlackLine was implemented, so I'm not sure what they were using before. I can't imagine it being better than BlackLine.
  • Task Management
  • Responding to tickets
  • Staying on top of technology
  • Some functionality could be better as far as button placement when the user has to scroll up & down to make changes.
  • Task Management
  • Reconciliations
  • Transaction Matching
  • I'm not sure about the ROI
I have not used another product like BlackLine. We considered moving task management to Workday, but the product is more efficient in BlackLine.

BlackLine is great for keeping us organized at month end and even throughout the month. Being able to route approvals through the system & attach files to tasks and recons is very helpful to both the accounting & audit groups. A larger size limit would be helpful. Sometimes we have to include a link to a file rather than the actual file which is less helpful b/c the file path could change. We also sometimes remove links or macros to make a file smaller, but that's extra work that would be nice to avoid.
