Senior finance manager from global aluminum manufacturing giant Novelis to
discuss ease of integration with SAPĀ® solutions, benefits, cost-savings realized
since using BlackLine
LOS ANGELES,  March 14, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Global aluminum manufacturer 
Novelis  is teaming up with financial software provider  BlackLine Systems   and
enterprise application software leader  SAP AG  (NYSE: SAP) to give a
presentation entitled  "See How Aluminum Manufacturing Giant Novelis Closes with
Confidence and Achieves Balance Sheet Integrity with Solutions from BlackLine
and SAP"  at the  Financials 2013  conference next week in  Las Vegas.


Melissa Rutten, CPA, manager of reporting projects at Novelis, will present a
case study on the ease of integration with SAP solutions and key benefits and
return on investment (ROI) the  $11 billion  public company has realized since
using BlackLine on a global basis.

The presentation with Novelis is one of two that BlackLine will deliver
alongside SAP during the conference.

The second, entitled "How to Overcome Weaknesses and Inefficiencies in the
Account Reconciliation Process for a Faster Close," will show how finance,
accounting, audit and compliance executives can further ensure the integrity of
their balance sheets - and ultimately financial reports - by implementing
software to automate the traditionally manual, labor-intensive and
spreadsheet-driven account reconciliation process.   

Both presentations are designed to inform customers, whether operating in an
environment of only SAP solutions or applications from multiple vendors, how
account reconciliation process optimization can help them achieve a quicker and
more accurate financial close process.   

Featured Speakers:

* Stefan Karl, chief solution expert, Finance Solutions, SAP AG  
* Bob Davenport, senior solutions consultant, BlackLine Systems  
* Melissa Rutten, CPA, manager of reporting projects, Novelis Inc.

Attendees will leave each session with insight into how, by automating their
account reconciliations, they can:

* Virtually eliminate spreadsheets (and the manual errors that often come with
them) from their account reconciliation process  
* Automate traditionally manual accounting functions  
* Have a faster, more efficient close cycle - maintaining more control and
visibility worldwide, while reducing risk  
* Realize exceptional ROI in a very short timeframe  
* Improve the accuracy and timeliness of compliance reporting  
* Manage compliance while servicing multiple locations, worldwide
