Carlson Management Consulting leading Blackline PartnerWoburn, MA – March 31, 2015 - Carlson Management Consulting, the financial solutions experts, today announced that it has entered into a partnership agreement with BlackLine, the leader in finance controls and automation software and the only provider today offering a completely unified cloud platform supporting the entire close-to-disclose process. Carlson Management Consulting is an award-winning consultancy that provides best-in-class cloud financial solutions and services to both for-profit and non-profit organizations.

“We are very excited to partner with BlackLine and offer their industry-leading solutions to our customers,” stated Ethan Carlson, CEO of Carlson Management Consulting. “The financial reconciliation and close process is still largely spreadsheet-based which detracts accounting and finance professionals from focusing on more value-added activities. Our clients will benefit from BlackLine solutions and Carlson implementation services as they seek to transform their core finance processes. Our new partnership aligns with our strategy of working with the top cloud-based financial solution providers.”

“BlackLine is pleased to partner with Carlson Management Consulting, a leader in Cloud financial solutions and services. Carlson Management Consulting’s reputation and expertise in the cloud CPM and ERP space complements BlackLine’s core philosophy in delivering excellence to our customers – and providing value in Enhanced Finance Controls and Automation software solutions.

As we expand our global reach, we see tremendous opportunity for leveraging strategic partnerships, particularly across Mid Market North America. With that, we are excited to have Carlson Management Consulting as a member of the BlackLine Partner Network.”

– Kim Di Paolo, VP Global Partner Channel, finance controls and automation software leader BlackLine.
