LONDON and LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26, 2012

LONDON and LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading global insurance
giant Zurich Insurance is teaming up with financial software provider
BlackLine Systems  and enterprise application software leader SAP AG (NYSE:
SAP) for a webinar entitled "See How Zurich Insurance Closes with Confidence
across Europe and North America by Automating Account Reconciliations with
Solutions from BlackLine and SAP."  The webinar will be geared at finance,
accounting, audit and compliance managers in mid- to large size organisations
in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region, an increasingly
fast-growing market for BlackLine's flagship account reconciliation software.


The session will focus on how finance/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.  A senior finance
executive from Zurich's Switzerland headquarters will present a case study on
the ease of integration with SAP® solutions and key benefits and ROI the
company has realised since using BlackLine.

The webinar is designed to inform customers, whether operating in an
environment of only SAP solutions or applications from multiple vendors, how
account reconciliation process optimisation can help them achieve a quicker
and more accurate financial close process.  The session will demonstrate the
importance of the account reconciliation process as a critical step on the
path to "closing with confidence."

North America by Automating Account Reconciliations with Solutions from
BlackLine and SAP"
