Transaction Matching

High-volume reconciliations can be some of the most time-consuming and painful components of the financial close process. The need to tick-and-tie millions of individual transactions can occupy hundreds of hours each month. The BlackLine Transaction Matching product can streamline and automate detail-heavy reconciliations, such as bank reconciliations, credit card matching, intercompany reconciliations and invoice-to-PO matching. It contains a state-of-the-art matching engine with powerful and configurable pass rules designed by business users to meet their specific challenges.

Transaction Matching provides an effective and efficient mechanism for identifying matched and unmatched transactions as well as for exception handling. BlackLine clients use this module for a variety of purposes, including Bank to General Ledger; Bank to Credit Card; Received, Not Invoiced to Received, Invoice Received; Intercompany Transactions; Investment Transactional Matches; Bank to Accounts Receivable; Third-Party Invoices to Internal Records; and many others. When unmatched transactions are found, you can quickly and easily create reconciling items as part of an Account Reconciliation and include a direct link to incorrect transactions within a correcting Journal Entry
