3_reasonsFor many organisations, the financial close remains a very manual, time consuming and painful process that has to be endured at the end of every key reporting period. Issues encountered originate from many different sources such as, regulations, unreliable spreadsheets, human error, lack of automation, along with time zone differences which affect multi-national organisations.

Our upcoming, ‘Automating the Financial Close’ seminar, is taking place on Tuesday 9th December 2014 at the Furniture Makers’ Hall in London and is a must-attend complimentary event for finance, accounting and compliance professionals looking to improve order, control, and visibility over their financial close.

The seminar will comprise an overview of BlackLine, the recognised market leader in the field of financial close software. The BlackLine Finance Controls & Automation Suite replaces manual, labour-intensive processes in the financial close with an easy-to-implement, easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain application.
