Pros

Overall, it has been a great experience. Support is excellent, and the company works to constantly improve the product and keep the features competitive with what's available in the market.
Have been on it since the start of the company and has worked great. Customer support is always there when we have a question and it serves our needs great.
The customizing of reports is great. The simplicity is nice and it's easy to navigate around and for the most part pretty easy to train on.

Pros

Nothing better in my opinion. For corporations looking to get a better understanding of your account balances - this was wonderful.
Great product overall with a lot of features and available room for customization. Offers great workflow management on top of the automation features.
I am set up to be using it as an administrator. I am learning more about the program, and so far, it has been a good experience.

Cons

Also for example, you can set invoices to "warn" you if duplicate invoice numbers when manually entering, but if you are using the import feature, it will just crash.
Sage intacct was the worst experience I have had with any accounting system implementation. I basically did all of the integration and system set up and paid them to do it.
We get a lot of errors within Intacct and Salesforce integration, I am not sure if our setup is just complex but we always seem to be fixing something.

Cons

Blackline is connected to our main accounting software, but there's a serious lag. Imagine you are reconciling an account in Blackline and notice you are missing an entry.
We had an awful implementation, so i'm sure I'm a bit biased. The Blackline team was not responsive and it took much longer than it should have to implement.
It doesn't update immediately - It doesn't update for an entire day, sometimes more. When deadlines are looming, a lag of that magnitude is serious.

I hope there is a better reconciliation software out there

Reviewed 2 years ago

We had an awful implementation, so i'm sure I'm a bit biased. The Blackline team was not responsive and it took much longer than it should have to implement. There is also not very good customer service options, so any issues that we have are not fixed in sufficient time.

Pros

It allows for uploadable data and syncs with our bank and Intacct.

Cons

This is the clunkiest software I've ever used. It's not really intuitive and seems like it's dated back from the 90s. It does the job, but I feel like they should really focus on their user interface.
