Centralize, manage, and automate journal entries
BlackLine Journal Entry provides a complete journal entry management system that enables you to create, review, and approve journals, then electronically certify and store them with all supporting documentation. Journals can be posted to the general or sub ledger systems with pre-posting validation to catch entry or logic errors, eliminating ledger rejections. Automation rules allow period-end journal entries to be created and populated based on data and rules, and posted automatically, eliminating considerable manual period-end work.

We promise you can quickly and securely:

  • eliminate labor-intensive, non-value adding activities
  • streamline decentralized and disjointed workflows
  • reduce the threat to the integrity of financial statements
  • reduce the risk of control failure
  • shorten cycle times

Centralize Journals Management

Centralize all information concerning a given journal in one easily accessible place with comments, supporting documents, and links to underlying matching transactions and reconciling items. Journals can be automatically validated, certified, and posted based on your rules, avoiding unnecessary labor and errors.

Automate and Streamline Journal Entries

Tasks are configurable across BlackLine products and can be linked with reconciliations and journals, guaranteeing the correct sequence, flow, and rollup of related activities. Milestone tasks can be used to track activity and automatically certify when child tasks are executed. Management-level reports give visibility into the global close calendar.

Post Journals Everywhere

When an organization works with multiple, disconnected, and out of sync financial systems, they are exposed to bad information and undue complexity. BlackLine solves this disintegration by connecting with all of your financial systems and ERPs and eliminates timing and reconciling differences.
