COMPANY NEWS: Building on its longstanding relationship delivering finance and accounting automation solutions to Microsoft Dynamics GP customers, BlackLine (Nasdaq: BL) today announced it is expanding on the collaboration to bring enhanced automation and financial operations management to Microsoft Dynamics 365 customers.

“Through our collaboration with Microsoft, we seek to help finance and accounting teams at midsize companies, as well as large organisations, gain control over their financial close, intercompany accounting, accounts receivable and other key processes for the office of the Controller,” said Mel Zeledon, senior vice president of channels and alliances at BlackLine.  “Together we’re providing an end-to-end solution, delivering greater customer value through enhanced connectivity and integration.”

As part of the expansion, BlackLine has joined Microsoft’s Business Application ISV (independent software vendor) Connect Program allowing both enterprise and mid-market Dynamics 365 Finance customers to benefit from the power of BlackLine’s unified platform for finance controls and automation—and all from within a single user interface.  Under the terms of the extended agreement, BlackLine and Microsoft also have entered into a joint selling arrangement under which BlackLine will work collaboratively with Microsoft’s technical, training, support and go-to-market teams.

“Microsoft welcomes BlackLine into the Microsoft Business Applications ecosystem and will offer its platform for finance controls and automation to Microsoft Dynamics 365 customers and partners,” said Toby Bowers, general manager for business applications at Microsoft.  “With this Microsoft Dynamics 365 integration, BlackLine offers a unique, innovative solution to organizations around the world that focuses on finance and accounting.”

BlackLine is ERP-agnostic, optimized for today’s modern enterprise with direct integration to more than 30 different leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) and source systems.  BlackLine has an existing connector for Microsoft Dynamics GP and expects to deliver one for Microsoft Dynamics 365 in 2022. 

“We expect to gain market traction as customers move to the cloud and continue their finance transformation journeys and believe the partnership will accelerate customer adoption with the assurance of an integrated solution for financial controls and automation,” added Mr. Zeledon.

BlackLine is showcasing its market-leading financial close, accounts receivable and intercompany accounting automation solutions this week in front of more than 17,500 registrants at BlackLine’s annual user conference BeyondTheBlack, with sessions designed to show how BlackLine complements specific ERP systems such as Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle, SAP, Oracle NetSuite, Workday and more.  Join us to find out why Eventex recognised BeyondTheBlack 2020 as one of the most ‘innovative, creative and effective events in the world’.  To view the agenda or register free of charge, go here.
