The product provides finance departments with end-to-end functionality that streamlines manual, spreadsheet-driven processes and offers unprecedented control, visibility, and efficiency over critical accounting processes.
Sapphire System’s Chief Executive Officer, Ian Caswell, said the partnership offers powerful additional functionality for the company’s customers: “One of the most common challenges we find clients regularly encounter is the amount of time spent on the financial close process. Depending on the size of the company it can take a finance department days, or even a week, to compile the information and data required to meet stringent reporting requirements.
“There is also the risk of error that accompanies the manual consolidation of numerous spreadsheets,” he said.
BlackLine’s Chief Revenue Officer, Chris Murphy, said: “We are delighted to have Sapphire as a member of the BlackLine Partner Network. Sapphire System’s extensive heritage, reputation and expertise in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) and financial management solutions marketplace complements BlackLine’s core philosophy to deliver excellence to our customers.
“BlackLine looks forward to leveraging the strength of Sapphire’s reach across the UK, USA, Australia and Asia to deliver industry leading cloud software and services.”
Ian Caswell concluded: “Sapphire’s status as a leading partner for Infor SunSystems and SAP Business One speaks to our level of service and support standards, along with a proven track record of implementing successful financial management and ERP solutions in the industry.”
