Good tool for account reconciliation in a GBS center
Kommentare: We started using it to replace our old client-server based software to support the month-end GL reconciliation process for various entities in our global company.
Vorteile: Due to the cloud technology it is available from anywhere. It could be really useful if you should manage GL reconciliation for many entities with different ERPs (it was our case) Easy to use interfaces, very good support. Can support the internal or external audit procedure and can reduce its cost. Auto-certification is sophisticated with several customization possibilities.
Nachteile: The implementation was a bit longer than expected (it was also because of our internal resources). With our current setup line level info cannot be loaded, so Excel sheets - as attachments - are remained after go live.

Blackline Integration with Data Management Software such as SAP
Kommentare: Since SAP has been integrated with BlackLine, reconciliations every day+5 of the month end processes are a lot easier. Variances and discrepancies are easily dealt with. Blackline has only been limited to its functions as well as the real-time processing of data.
Vorteile: It is a web-based application for performing account balances reconciliation which can be easily integrated with other financial software such as SAP.
Nachteile: The software is limited to reconciliations and intercompany transactions wherein the vast majority of software are investing on in-memory capacity and cloud for more flexible transactions.

Great tool for balance sheet recs!
Vorteile: It provides visibility and consistency to balance sheet recs. Fairly easy to use. Several different templates available pre-built.
Nachteile: Some of the different screens have the Save button in different places which can be a bit frustrating.

Has some good functionality but implementation is harder than expected
Vorteile: Great place to centralize reconciliations and journalling etc as opposed to spreadsheets and google docs
Nachteile: Connectivity with ERP, in our case Netsuite, is a lot more complicated than how it is sold with a loyt of additional development and expense required

Recommend to accounting departments going paperless
Kommentare: Going paperless.
Vorteile: I like how easy it is to see unidentified balances for each account from the main page, giving you a screenshot of where to spend your time. I used it mostly for insurance amortizations, and the schedules make it easy to do once entered, and the balances closes on the day indicated.
Nachteile: Not a big deal but small functional things such as having to save a schedule and then clicking cancel in order to exit out. It's not intuitive to click on cancel if you want to exit after making a change.

Records for Closing All In One Place

Nachteile: The useful interface's design isn't as fluid as one would like but you get use to it after a using it as your day to day work.

Great Product with a lot of features
Vorteile: Great product overall with a lot of features and available room for customization. Offers great workflow management on top of the automation features.
Nachteile: No cons to mention. Not sure how many other products are out there that offer the same type of financial solution that Blackline offers, but Blackline is a solid product.
