Modern vs Legacy Approach

Enterprise all-in-one solutions, such as BlackLine, are rigid and painful to implement since they require accounting teams to change the way they work. With BlackLine you’re forced to throw away the tools that you know and trust and do your work in ‘90’s era web forms. And by the way, you won’t be able to use those web forms for complex reconciliations, so you’re going to have to turn back to Excel to get the job done.

By contrast, new accounting software built from the ground up that lives in the cloud, like FloQast, is more agile and collaborative. Rather than trying to replace the other apps accountants already use and love, FloQast integrates with them and adds to their functionality. We don’t force accountants into new ways of closing the books, we work the way accountants already do by leveraging the tools they use, such as Excel and cloud storage providers like Box, OneDrive, Google Drive and more. We also integrate directly with popular ERP systems such as Oracle NetSuite, Sage Intacct and others.

And since FloQast was built by accountants and not technologists, we understand not only how you do your job, but are constantly adding new capabilities to help you better streamline and make your close more efficient.

ROI in 10 Months — Not 24

Easy to use, intuitive and powerful means faster payback than BlackLine. Typically requiring little to no formal training, FloQast users are up and running closing their books faster and more accurately typically in the first month after licensing.



Go Live in Less than a Month vs 5 Months

Set-up for FloQast is done over the phone with accounting experts. New customers are frequently up and running on FloQast in two weeks. By contrast, BlackLine requires a costly time-consuming service engagement that is measured in months. No wonder former BlackLine customers who have made the switch to FloQast most frequently did so due to a failed implementation or they are using only a fraction of the legacy accounting software’s capabilities due to its complexity.
