Overall Satisfaction with BlackLine

We use BlackLine for account reconciliations, journal entries, and reporting. BlackLine is being used by multi-levels of the accounting field, from the most entry-level position, processing transactions to upper management for financial reporting. BlackLine streamlines our month-end process, by having journal entries and reporting all in one place. We are able to follow month-end schedules and have automatic journal entries posted, so nothing is forgotten.
  • Journal Entries
  • Account reconciliations
  • Month-End reporting
  • The new upgrade took some time to get used to and find items.
  • Flexible reporting would be nice to have, as things can change month to month.
  • If a journal entry cannot be uploaded, there is no details for it. It just states is failed.
  • Audit controls
  • Reconciliations
  • Journal Entries
  • Streamlines the journal entry process, no more manual approvals
  • Saved times for employees
  • Audit controls are added right in BlackLine.
Prior to BlackLine or process was manual. Manual journal entries, manual approval, manual account reconciliations. This was time-consuming and not productive. Blackline has removed the need for monthly/yearly stacks of binders and paper. All backup can be added directly into the system; if there is not enough information, then the approver just kicks it back.

BlackLine makes it easy for audits. When we have a balance sheet audit, the internal audit team has their own access. No need to stop someone and ask for information. The auditors can go in, review what they need and then ask the department heads for more information, as needed. It makes the audit process much easier and [there are] fewer interruptions.
