Finance controls and automation software provider BlackLine will host its sixth annual APAC User Conference this week in Melbourne, focusing on how organisations can attain ‘Modern Finance’ status by through implementing finance transformation and adopt best practices for accelerating the financial close.
Accountancy and finance team members from Australia and Du Pont will present case studies on how they have used BlackLine’s cloud-based financial automation platform, while representatives of Atlassian, Dennis Family Corporation and Qantas will also share their journeys to modern finance.
Speakers from Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and The Hackett Group will also address the need for finance transformation due to intensifying global competitive pressures, a rapidly changing regulatory landscape, the growing complexity of financial processes, and heightened demands for clear visibility into balance sheet data.
As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to strengthen its global operations and service, BlackLine has designed the two-day event for attendees in the region to share their ideas on how finance and accounting can get more value from the BlackLine platform by using best practices. Customers will also preview upcoming software enhancements and directly influence the product direction going forward.
BlackLine has more than 100 customers based in APAC, including ACE Asia Pacific Services, BlueScope Steel, Boral, Bunnings, Coles, Downer EDI, Evolution Mining, Kimberly-Clark Australia, Linfox, Optus, Tabcorp, Qantas, QBE and Wesley Mission. During the past 12 months, the company has seen a 38 per cent increase in its customer base and also has added new sales, professional services and technical support team employees in Malaysia, Singapore and Australia.
The BlackLine APAC User Conference 2015 will be held on 8-9 September at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Melbourne. For more information, visit www.blackline.com/user-conference/apac.
