BLACKLINE SHORTLISTED FOR SOFTWARE PRODUCT OF THE YEAR AT 2015 BUSINESS FINANCE AWARDS

BlackLine has been recognised in the category of ‘Software Product of the Year’ at the 2015 Business Finance Awards. The awards, which took place in London last night, recognise excellent work of C-level finance executives and their teams over the past 12 months.

BlackLine was shortlisted for the time and cost savings of its BlackLine Finance Controls and Automation Platform , launched in October 2014, which automates and controls key finance and accounting processes including journal entry, task management and intercompany clearing. The company announced its 1,000th customer in February 2015 and is continuing to see considerable adoption of the new platform.

“It is increasingly important for CFOs and financial directors to adopt a modern finance approach when it comes to their processes,” says Mario Spanicciati, Executive Director of BlackLine EMEA. “There are now more options available than ever before to help finance teams get the most from their data, ensuring accuracy and security.

“A recent survey by BlackLine found that only a quarter of financial decision makers trust the accuracy of their data,” he continues. “This is a huge number and it’s important that finance directors are aware of the options available to them. We are delighted to have been recognised in this year’s Business Finance Awards and hope that we can continue to help finance teams to achieve their goals through a modern finance approach”.

The FD Business Finance Awards took place on 11th March at the Royal Garden Hotel, London. For a full list of winners and finalists, visit: http://events.financialdirector.co.uk/businessfinanceawards/static/home
