LOS ANGELES, July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) is teaming up with financial software company BlackLine Systems and enterprise application software leader SAP (NYSE: SAP) for a webinar entitled "See How Dow Accelerates the Financial Close Using the BlackLine Financial Close Suite for SAP® Solutions . "

The session will focus on how accounting/finance directors and compliance officers can further ensure the integrity of their balance sheets – and ultimately financial reports – by implementing enterprise-class financial software packages, such as BlackLine's software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based Financial Close Suite, to automate the traditionally manual, labor-intensive and spreadsheet-driven account reconciliation process. Theresa Buckmaster, BlackLine system administrator at Dow, will present a case study on the ease of integration with SAP solutions and key benefits and return on investment (ROI) the nearly $60 billion public company has realized since using BlackLine on a global basis.

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 optimization can help them achieve a quicker and more accurate financial close process. 

What:  "See How Dow Accelerates the Financial Close Using the BlackLine Financial Close Suite for SAP® Solutions"
