Blackline Launches Channel Program

Los Angeles-based BlackLine, which develops cloud-based software for the finance and accounting market, said it has launched a new channel partner program. Blackline said the launch of the channel effort will help it expand its global distribution, and help meet what it says is "surging demand" for its products. BlackLine is a developer of cloud-based software used for the financial close process. Blackline serves the midsize and enterprise market with its tools. BlackLine says it has signed up more than 25 channel partners in North America, Europe, Latin America, Australia, Asia and Africa so far. The company's software significantly automates processes which had been manually handled or done with kludged together spreadsheets.
