Financial software company shortlisted in two categories highlighting benefits, ROI of flagship financial close suite

LONDON and LOS ANGELESá— Enterprise-class financial software company BlackLine Systems was honoured at last night’s 2014 Computer Weekly European User Awards for Software, winning ‘Supplier of the Year’, for its work implementing account reconciliation and financial close software to automate traditionally manual accounting processes at Pan-European insurance provider Achmea. BlackLine also was shortlisted in the ‘Private Sector Project of the Year’ category. The award nominations highlighted the benefits and ROI BlackLine’s flagship Financial Close Suite has brought to accountancy departments across the globe.

The awards series, hosted by UK-wide IT publication Computer Weekly, honours IT professionals across the UK and Europe that have provided an “excellent approach to technology.” The awards focus on five key areas: networking, security, software, storage and datacentre.

Accountancy/finance managers and compliance executives around the world use BlackLine’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based offering to automate financial close processes, which are traditionally labour-intensive, manual and time-consuming. The entries for each of the shortlisted categories showcased how BlackLine has transformed vital processes for accounts staff through automation, featuring a case study with Achmea, one of Europe’s most trusted financial services providers, to show how BlackLine helped to reduce time spent on manual, labour-intensive processes and ultimately kept the company on track for its 2014 targets.

The 2014 Computer Weekly European User Awards for Software were held at the 2014 Cloud World Forum, Olympia, London. For the full list of winners, visit:
