BlackLine’s Variance Analysis module allows companies to automatically conduct variance and fluctuation analyses with a rules-driven process that monitors all balance fluctuations. The Variance module automatically requires explanations to be made by the appropriate account owners when rules are broken, eliminating the need for manual follow-up with phone calls and email.
The Variance Module supports the following:
Automated, rules-driven monitoring,
Flexible variance types for Budgeted vs. Actual, Forecasted vs. Actual, YTD, month-over-month, quarter-over-quarter, year-over-year, and quarterly comparisons,
Capture of explanations and analysis,
Roll-up of variance types for financial reporting,
Flexible variance grouping.
BlackLine’s Variance Analysis can be used much more extensively to manage risk throughout an organization without adding additional workloads.
