BlackLine Named to G2's Annual Best Accounting & Finance Software List for the 5th Year in a Row

Digital finance transformation leader recognized by customers for ease-of-use, visibility, breadth of functionality, workflow, and reporting capabilities

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- BlackLine, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: BL) Financial Close Management solution was recently honored by G2, a leading online software marketplace and peer review platform, as one of the 'Best Accounting & Finance Products for 2024'. This marks the fifth consecutive year G2 has recognized BlackLine's leadership position as a premier platform for the Office of the CFO.

G2 is the world's largest software marketplace, with more than 90 million buyers annually — including employees at all Fortune 500 companies — using G2 to make smarter software decisions based on end-user reviews. The G2 Best Software Awards rank the world's best software companies and products based on authentic, timely reviews from real users. To be recognized as a Best Software Award winner, a company or product must have received at least 50 approved and published reviews during the 2023 calendar year. Scores reflect only data from reviews submitted during this evaluation period.

The only provider of end-to-end financial close automation software on this year's list, BlackLine ranked in the top 50 out of nearly 3,500 accounting and finance products. According to G2, "Less than 1% of all vendors listed on G2 made this year's awards."
