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:

  oStefan Karl, chief solution expert, Finance Solutions, SAP AG
  oBob Davenport, senior solutions consultant, BlackLine Systems
  oMelissa Rutten, CPA, manager of reporting projects, Novelis Inc.

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

  oVirtually eliminate spreadsheets (and the manual errors that often come
    with them) from their account reconciliation process
  oAutomate traditionally manual accounting functions
  oHave a faster, more efficient close cycle - maintaining more control and
    visibility worldwide, while reducing risk
  oRealize exceptional ROI in a very short timeframe
  oImprove the accuracy and timeliness of compliance reporting
  oManage compliance while servicing multiple locations, worldwide
