BlackLine said recently that it has made several complimentary offerings to help customers who could benefit from extra support closing books when their team members work from home during the coronavirus outbreak.
According to the company, its customers will have free access to the followings:
- Open access to the entire BlackLine U library of educational online resources and self-led training – including CPE-eligible (Continuing Professional Education) courses;
- A new curriculum focused on closing in a distributed work environment including 15- and 30-minute ‘snackable’ videos, live virtual instructor-led training sessions and virtual ‘coffee breaks’ featuring interactive Q&A;
- Pre-scheduled one-on-one time with a BlackLine subject matter expert to get real-time guidance; and
- Task Management and Reporting free for six months to existing customers who haven’t yet licensed these solutions, as well as complimentary expert coaching sessions for those who subscribe to the software already
In addition to doing all we can to ensure our mission-critical cloud-based accounting platform continues to operate flawlessly during this period, we wanted to do more to help our global community of accounting and finance professionals, said BlackLine CEO Therese Tucker.
“We’re putting our best minds together to compile leading practices and other content based on the expertise we’ve gathered working with so many organizations around the world,” Tucker noted. “We want to share this knowledge to help alleviate some of the stress that may come with the impending month- and quarter-end closes. In addition, we want to help our customers who are CPAs keep their accreditations current, even if they are confined to their homes – and at no cost in these difficult times.”
