Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading global insurance giant
Zurich Insurance is teaming up with financial software provider
BlackLine Systems and enterprise application software leader
SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) for a webinar entitled
"See How Zurich Insurance Closes with Confidence across Europe and North America by Automating Account Reconciliations with Solutions from BlackLine and SAP." The webinar will be geared at finance, accounting, audit and compliance managers in mid- to large size organisations in the EMEA (
Middle East and
Africa) region, an increasingly fast-growing market for BlackLine's
flagship account reconciliation software.
The session will focus on how finance/compliance executives can further ensure the integrity of their balance sheets – and ultimately financial reports – by implementing software to automate the traditionally manual, labor-intensive and spreadsheet-driven account reconciliation process. A senior finance executive from
Switzerland headquarters will present a case study on the ease of integration with SAP® solutions and key benefits and ROI the company has realised since using BlackLine.
The webinar is designed to inform customers, whether operating in an environment of only SAP solutions or applications from multiple vendors, how account reconciliation process optimisation can help them achieve a quicker and more accurate financial close process. The session will demonstrate the importance of the account reconciliation process as a critical step on the path to "closing with confidence."
