Partnership Designed to Help Companies Transform their Finance & Accounting Operations into True Modern Finance Organizations
Indianapolis, IN – December 13, 2016: Bakerfield Solutions, a provider of solutions and services to the Office of Finance, has announced it is joining BlackLine’s global Channel Partner Program to meet increasing demand from its customers for finance controls and automation software solutions. The partnership is designed to help companies transform their existing Finance & Accounting (F&A) departments into true Modern Finance organizations, with Bakerfield adding BlackLine’s cloud-based Finance Controls & Automation Platform to the product portfolio it offers to current and prospective customers.
With intensifying global competitive pressures, a rapidly changing regulatory landscape, the growing complexity of financial processes, and heightened demand for clear visibility into balance sheet data, Finance & Accounting must reconcile an increasingly vast amount of data. While enterprise resource planning (ERP) and business intelligence (BI) systems collect, track and analyze business data, they do not automate account reconciliations and other critical F&A processes.
“BlackLine’s Modern Finance Platform arms Bakerfield with a solution to offer clients that replaces manual spreadsheet-based processes and helps improve data accuracy, visibility and control.“ Mark Cawi, President, Bakerfield Solutions.
Blackline is being used globally by staff in accounting, finance and compliance departments in some of the world’s largest organizations, BlackLine Channel Partners, such as Bakerfield Solutions, are seasoned consultants and experts in their fields who offer strategic guidance, deep technical skills and relevant expertise that extends our reach significantly and enables a much more rapid deployment of the BlackLine solution globally, said Chris Murphy, BlackLine’s chief revenue officer.
BlackLine is a provider of cloud-based solutions for Finance & Accounting (F&A) that centralize and streamline financial close operations and other key F&A processes for midsize and large organizations. Designed to complement ERP and other financial systems, the BlackLine Finance Controls & Automation Platform increases operational efficiency, real-time visibility, control and compliance to ensure end-to-end financial close management, fueling confidence throughout the entire accounting cycle.
BlackLine’s mission is to continuously improve the quality, accuracy and efficiency of Finance & Accounting by centralizing key functions within a single, unified cloud platform. Enabling customers to move beyond outdated processes and point solutions to a Continuous Accounting model, in which real-time automation, controls and period-end tasks are embedded within day-to-day activities, BlackLine helps companies achieve Modern Finance status, ensuring more accurate and insightful financial statements and a more efficient financial close. More than 1,500 companies with users in approximately 120 countries around the world trust BlackLine to ensure balance sheet integrity and confidence in their financial statements.
