  • Increased compliance with evolving e-invoicing regulations across various countries
  • · Payers can conveniently access and download invoices through secure, branded, customer invoice portals, enhancing self-service capabilities
  • Enhanced financial flexibility with the ability to service inbound customer payments through a range of versatile payment channels

In addition to EIPP, BlackLine's unified AR automation solutions now include Cash Application, Credit and Risk Management, Collections Management, Dispute Resolution, Task Management, and analytics to power data-driven decision-making on credit limits, risk policies, collections strategies, and more.

"AR automation is a critical component in any modern accounting or digital finance transformation journey," said Therese Tucker, co-CEO of BlackLine.
