BeyondTheBlack, formerly InTheBlack, is BlackLine’s annual user conference that for 12 years has brought together a global community focused on innovation in F&A. The new name encapsulates the new reality: accountants are now being called on to do more than just close the books and verify that the numbers are right. What was previously their sole focus is now just one part of the value they bring. F&A leaders are embracing modern accounting by unifying systems, data and processes to deliver accurate results faster; automating routine work to focus on strategic business initiatives; and executing accounting continuously to support the business in real time. Instead of just making sure organizations are ‘InTheBlack’, it’s time for accountants to go ‘BeyondTheBlack’.
