Concord Hospitality Enterprises Upgrades to New iPhone and iPad-Compatible Execuvue BI; Adds Guest Satisfaction Data Analysis 
Aptech released its next-generation Execuvue® business intelligence (BI) system for the newest Cognos database platforms. Execuvue delivers fully interactive BI reports for iPhone®, iPad®, Windows Mobile, Blackberry® and Symbian platforms through a mobile-ready Web portal. It provides reports in more than 40 formats. Operators can create their own ad hoc queries and customize existing reports to include guest sentiment data. Concord Hospitality implemented the new Execuvue, which now automates guest satisfaction data analysis.

Execuvue Reduces Labor Costs in 72 Hotels   
“We upgraded to the newest Execuvue version because we value the flexibility of multiple information conduits feeding into our BI,” said Brian Cornell, vice president of IT for Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company, which manages 72 hotels nationwide. “We previously imported financial and Smith Travel information into Execuvue, but now we can include time and attendance – actual punch data as it occurs. Forecasted labor costs help us do a better job of scheduling.”

Execuvue accesses, merges and mines data from property solutions including:

  • Sales and catering  
  • Smith Travel data
  • Time and attendance 
  • Food and beverage and POS
  • Guest satisfaction surveys and websites
  • Property management systems

Execuvue is a Web-based enterprise BI application for large and small hotel companies that coordinates data from various corporate systems, including Smith Travel Research, into accessible information with familiar browser simplicity. Extended Stay Hotels, Innkeepers Hospitality, Ashford Hospitality Trust, Peabody Hotel Group and many other successful companies use Aptech’s Execuvue business intelligence, Profitvue and Webvue accounting systems.

Targetvue is a hospitality-driven budgeting and forecasting solution. Aptech joined forces with PROPHIX to develop a totally new budgeting and forecasting application fully integrated with its Profitvue accounting and Execuvue business intelligence systems. Targetvue eliminates the need for correcting and recombining multiple spreadsheets for consolidation and reporting.

Profitvue is a widely used enterprise thin-client, Internet-enabled hospitality back office solution that easily handles single or multiproperty and multicompany accounting, and incorporates accounts payable, general ledger, statistics and financials. Profitvue gives users open database compliance (ODBC) within a scalable, client/server, open systems architecture. Profitvue is available as an ASP service or on a licensed basis.

Webvue is an extension of Profitvue that supports property accounting and reporting via the Internet. Designed for limited-service hotels, Webvue enables properties to quickly and easily send and access financial and statistical data and generate reports through its Internet or intranet site. Hotels can have real-time access to financials at any time, from any location. Webvue is fully secure and centrally controlled and can expand to handle multiple property sites.

With more than 2,500 property clients, Aptech recognizes that professionals in the hospitality industry each view accounting differently. The company delivers customized, Web-enabled solutions that can fit any operating requirement, including distributed and centralized accounting, regional accounting or any combination needed to meet a company’s unique operation.

For more than 40 years Aptech has led the hospitality market in leveraging change by valuing human relationships and applying technology to solve business problems for people. All of its applications are supported seven days a week and 24 hours each day by experienced hotel industry professionals.
