“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

BlackLine provides a host of tightly integrated applications and packaged solutions that automate and accelerate the financial close and other key Finance & Accounting processes – from within a single, unified cloud-based platform. Leading companies of all sizes are now implementing financial controls and automation solutions as part of their efforts to transform legacy, back-office operations into world-class, Modern Finance organizations with greater efficiencies and reduced compliance risk.
