Abercrombie, CPA, director of Corporate Infrastructure & Operations for Thomson Reuters, will share his insight on how companies can communicate better, improve efficiencies, increase productivity, reduce bottom line costs and ultimately 'close with confidence' by implementing best practices such as automating traditionally manual account reconciliation and financial close processes. The presentation with Thomson Reuters is one of two that BlackLine will deliver alongside SAP during the conference. The second, entitled " How to Overcome Weaknesses and Inefficiencies in the Account Reconciliation Process for a Faster Close," will show how finance, accounting, audit and 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. Both presentations are 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.
