LOS ANGELES, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), along with other BlackLine Systems client companies, will be joining the financial close software leader and SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) to deliver several presentations each day at BlackLine booth number 1313 during SAPPHIRE® NOW and the ASUG Annual Conference taking place June 3-5 in Orlando, Fla.
The BlackLine System Administrator from Dow Chemical will be in the BlackLine booth for a series of demo sessions highlighting the ease of integration with SAP solutions, as well as the key benefits and return on investment (ROI) the nearly $60 billion public company has realized since using BlackLine on a global basis to accelerate its financial close.
The regular booth presentations with Dow and other BlackLine clients are just one of three activities BlackLine will participate in during the conference to showcase its end-to-end solution for helping companies accelerate the financial close.
Representatives from BlackLine and SAP also will co-host a microforum presentation in the Lines of Business campus (LB255) entitled " Make the Most of Your Entity Financial Close and Account Reconciliations." Presented in a roundtable format, the SAP and BlackLine microforum is scheduled for 1 p.m. EDT on June 2.
