BlackLine Named a Leader in Two Categories in New Finance and Accounting Platforms Report

Digital finance transformation leader is the only company recognized for both Invoice to Cash and Record to Report in 2024 ISG Provider Lens™ study

LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Global technology research and advisory firm Information Services Group (ISG) has named BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL) a leader in two categories – Invoice to Cash (I2C) and Record to Report (R2R) – in its latest Provider Lens™ study that assesses platform providers for their ability to help businesses transform and manage finance and accounting (F&A) operations.

The 2024 ISG Provider Lens™ Global Finance and Accounting Platforms report evaluates the capabilities of 22 providers across two quadrants. BlackLine is the only company identified as a leader in both:

  • Invoice to Cash, covering providers that deliver platforms encompassing the entire accounts receivable spectrum, leveraging cutting-edge technology such as AI, machine learning, and robotic process automation to revolutionize how businesses approach receivables, enabling decision-making with predictive analytics, optimizing customer payment behaviors, and ensuring seamless cash flow management.
  • Record to Report, covering providers encompassing the entire financial recording and reporting process from the initial recording of transactions and events to delivering financial insights and reports. More than just tools for financial recordkeeping and reporting, these platforms are vital instruments for strategic financial management.

In the report, lead author and ISG analyst Gaurang Pagdi notes, "The emergence of F&A platforms stands at the forefront of innovation, indicating a transformation in how businesses manage their fiscal operations. As organizations grapple with an increasingly complex financial environment marked by global economic fluctuations, stringent regulatory demands, and the push for transparency, such platforms have become indispensable. They facilitate efficiency and provide strategic insight, enabling companies to navigate the uncertainties of financial management with agility and informed foresight."

Pagdi goes on to say, "BlackLine's extended F&A ecosystem enables the modernization of traditional finance operations by delivering cohesive solutions that span critical functions. Its unified I2C platform streamlines invoicing and collections, enhancing cash flow and customer relations. Concurrently, the comprehensive R2R processes automate and refine financial reporting, ensuring accuracy and compliance. This holistic approach not only elevates operational efficiency but also empowers businesses with real-time insights for strategic decision-making, fostering sustainable growth."

All evaluations feature customer experience (CX) data that measures actual enterprise experience with specific provider services and solutions, based on ISG's continuous CX research.
