Zurich Insurance Teams with BlackLine Systems, SAP for EMEA Webinar

Dec 03, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Global insurance giant Zurich Insurance announced that it is teaming with financial software provider BlackLine Systems and enterprise application software leader SAP AG 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." According to a release, 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.
