Overall Satisfaction with BlackLine
We currently use Blackline's Account Reconciliations, Task Management and Journal entry modules. The company has had a phased approach for the rollout and has been continuing on the journey of optimizing the usage of the tool.Blackline adds a great value to the close process - from using task management, automating journal entries to account reconciliations - Blackline provides a suite of applications to manage the end to end close cycle. Blackline has been instrumental in managing the close process better.
- Automated journal entries
- Account Reconciliations
- Giving more power to an end user would be ideal - ability to group recs and self assign accounts would be a great simplification initiative
- Higher controllership
- Audit capability
- Helped move away from a paper to electronic environment, great visibility into open tasks

Automated journal entries is a great feature - not only does it allow a workflow capability for audit and SOX purposes, but by automatically interfacing with an ERP it ensures that no errors occur between the approval and the posting of the entries. The ability to tie journal masters to tasks is a great productivity enhancer.
