Amgen Joins BlackLine Systems, SAP For Webinar On Automating Account Reconciliations

LOS ANGELES, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Biotechnology industry pioneer Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN), is teaming up with financial software provider BlackLine Systems  and enterprise application software leader SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) for a webinar next week entitled "No Account Left Behind!  Learn How Amgen Uses Solutions from BlackLine and SAP to Help Keep Its Account Reconciliations in Good Shape ."   


The webinar, geared at finance, accounting, audit and compliance managers in mid- to large size organizations  will focus on how finance and/or compliance executives can further ensure the integrity of their balance sheets – and ultimately financial reports – by implementing software, such as BlackLine's SaaS-based Account Reconciliation solution, to automate the traditionally manual, labor-intensive and spreadsheet-driven account reconciliation process.  Carlos Gonzalez, CPA, director of corporate accounting at Amgen, will present a case study on the ease of integration with SAP® solutions and key benefits the public biotech company has seen since using BlackLine. 

The session is designed to inform customers, whether operating in an environment of only SAP solutions or applications from multiple vendors, how account reconciliation process optimization can help them achieve a quicker and more accurate financial close process.  Gonzalez will highlight how Amgen uses solutions from BlackLine alongside SAP software to review and rate the quality of each reconciliation in order to better ensure the accuracy of the company's financials.
