Deloitte has partnered with financial close solutions provider BlackLine to enhance its Digital Controllership offering. The alliance connects Deloitte’s advanced finance automation solutions with BlackLine’s finance controls and automation and intercompany solutions, and is aimed at helping corporate controllers and finance organizations reduce inefficiencies and errors.

Deloitte’s Center for Controllership provides resources and research to chief accounting officers (CAOs), controllers and their teams. One of the goals of the center is to offer disruptive technology such as blockchain and robotics, and partnering with tech companies such as BlackLine is part of that strategy.

“Board members and C-suite executives expect every function to develop and share deeper insights that help drive strategic growth,” stated Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory CEO Chuck Saia. “Transforming the financial function with enhanced efficiencies that leverage governance and risk management technologies can help our clients’ leaders in controllership, risk, and finance focus on higher-level strategy efforts.”

BlackLine CEO and founder Therese Tucker called the alliance “highly valued and complementary” in a statement, and added, “We are … enabling finance organizations to become strategic advisors to the business by freeing accountants from manual, repetitive tasks and unleashing them to handle higher-level, value-added activities.”
