Automate frequent reconciliations for continuous control and validation
Ensuring the validity of the balances of bank, credit card, lockbox, and other key accounts is a constant struggle for accounting teams. Associated complexities coupled with period-end time constraints mean critical steps are often ignored. Manually ticking and tying large datasets across spreadsheets lacks control and increases the risk of an error or material weakness. BlackLine Daily Reconciliations enables continual monitoring of accounts for accuracy throughout an accounting period by automating these more frequent, labor-intensive reconciliations.
BlackLine Daily Reconciliations combines transaction matching, account reconciliation, and automated journals functionality to streamline the regular monitoring and verification of account balances. Instead of wrestling with period-end time pressures, data from multiple sources can be automatically brought in, discrepancies identified, and reconciliations performed every day or as needed. This ensures confidence, accuracy, and timely follow-up on issues.
By automatically pulling in and comparing data from source systems such as bank files, credit card and merchant processors, and point of sale systems, the risk of human error is removed while staff is freed up to spend time investigating and resolving issues. Tailor approval workflows and embed complete auditability and control throughout every step of this automated process.
BlackLine provides standardisation for frequent reconciliations by automatically populating daily reconciliations with balances from the GL and bank accounts, identifying system-matched transactions, and subtracting unmatched transactions and routing them for investigation and resolution. Focus accounting teams on investigating discrepancies instead of manually ticking and tying transactions across spreadsheets.
