Aptech Computer Systems has announced that Sandals Resorts International (SRI) has upgraded to the latest Execuvue Business Intelligence for easy-to-use, flexible global reporting for its 21 resorts throughout the Caribbean.

SRI operates Sandals, Beaches and Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts. Aptech is one of the leading providers of hospitality software for business intelligence, budgeting and enterprise financial accounting.

“Sandals implemented Execuvue Business Intelligence in 2003 to collect and analyze data from all its properties," said Joanne Pearson, director of corporate reporting for SRI and a fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants. "The newest Execuvue version simplifies interactive report creation and adds dashboard capability with property performance updates throughout the day. The new Execuvue provides easy to use, flexible report formats and allows us to use color coding to highlight important exception information that makes it easy to highlight specific issues so we can react and make decisions on near real-time performance information."

Data in Execuvue is available faster, and the system makes it easier to create ad-hoc reports. “Our new Execuvue reports are also available in Excel formats for saving or running,” said Pearson. “The Sandals’ Finance team uses Execuvue dashboards throughout the day/week for current performance data on our properties. We are using it on our desktop PCs and laptops now and will move to tablets in the future. We can drill down into any of the data in the newest Execuvue reports, plus they are very easy to understand."

“The latest Execuvue version is based on the Cognos 10 platform," said Cam Troutman, vice president of Aptech. "It automatically allows analysis of Sandals Resorts’ data and the ability to create interactive reports and dashboards for each Sandals property. The SRI Team can have a daily snapshot of each hotel’s financial performance, labor costs against budget, and other KPI comparisons on one screen.” 

The new Execuvue release significantly increases data mobility and flexibility of access. Execuvue’s flexible platform allows users to view dashboards with an array of data and a variety of charts or graphs. Anyone within an organization who requires performance management information can view it on whichever device best suits them wherever they may be. Execuvue leverages the latest IBM/Cognos tools to deliver mobile data to our users, and it is drawing an enthusiastic response from our multi-property, multi-flag operators.”
