Blackline partners with OPI to help large Companies looking to outsource accounting and finance functions

9th December 2010

Outsource Partners International (OPI) has partnered with financial software provider BlackLine Systems to bring BlackLine’s automated account reconciliation and financial close software to OPI’s global client base, mainly comprised of large organizations looking to outsource accounting and finance department functions.

OPI also will be using BlackLine to automate its internal account reconciliation process.

 “The business benefits of outsourcing extend well beyond cost savings to include improved efficiency, effectiveness, flexibility, quality and compliance,” Clarence Schmitz, CEO, OPI, said.  “By integrating BlackLine into their outsource strategies, we believe OPI can offer our clients all of the above and help them emerge better able to support the operational and strategic demands of their business.” 

 “With the large and growing number of companies expected to move to an outsourced finance function, partnering with OPI will be an important part of our growth strategy over the next several years,” Therese Tucker, CEO, BlackLine, said.  “Software by itself won’t improve a company’s finance organization or processes.  We rely on partners such as OPI that have extensive experience in finance transformation to provide additional value to our clients.”
