As an integrated part of the BlackLine Finance Controls and the Automation Suite, Account Reconciliation products make accountants’ lives easier.
Ensure The Accuracy Of Your Financial Data
The account reconciliation function of BlackLine software will automate and standardize your reconciliation process. Too often, these entries are done manually. Even with a computerized financial accounting system, this leads to human errors when it comes time to close out an accounting period. It is also time consuming which is why some of these entries can be automated.
BlackLine’s account reconciliation software takes control of this process by using your current accounting software to prepare and automatically process period-end adjusting entries. It drives the accuracy of the financial close by providing accountants with a streamlined way to verify the accuracy of trial balances. This allows your business to prepare a balance sheet that incorporates different business divisions and is accurate to the minute.
