BlackLine secures ICAEW accreditation

ACCOUNTANCY SOFTWARE company BlackLine has been awarded accreditation from the ICAEW for its cloud-based finance controls and automation platform.

BlackLine believes the recognition from the accounting institute will see more accounting departments and ICAEW members embracing a modern finance approach, as taxpayers and HMRC move towards a more digitally-focused tax base.

The company’s Finance Control platform aims to automate complex, manual and repetitive tasks in finance and accounting, as it becomes just one of 20 solutions to have gained approval from the ICAEW.

The institute’s current accredited software line-up spans e-commerce products, property management, letting software and document management, all designed specifically for the accountancy industry. Other luminaries recognised by the membership organisation come from companies including NetSuite, Sage and Capita.

Craig McLellan, manager of the ICAEW Accreditation Scheme, commented: “We are delighted that BlackLine’s Finance Controls and Automation Platform has been accredited, having satisfied our robust technical evaluation criteria. It is the first and currently the only Online Financial Controls and Automation Software to be accredited.”

Mario Spanicciati, chief strategy officer for BlackLine, added: “With a rise in companies adopting a Modern Finance approach, it’s vital that membership bodies like ICAEW are giving their members access to the latest and greatest solutions that can help them automate and control their core processes.

This news comes just days after accounting software vendor Xero confirmed a partnership with Google which sees its cloud-based platforms integrate Gmail and Google Apps for work offerings.
