Four Hotel Companies Select Aptech Business Intelligence, Accounting and Budgeting Solutions

Hotels Nationwide Implement Aptech to Grow Portfolios, Assess Acquisition Profitability, and Simplify Back Office Operations
Four hotel companies selected Aptech to strengthen their business intelligence (BI), budgeting, forecasting and accounting. M&R Hospitality Management in New York and San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif., are among the companies implementing Aptech’s financial solutions.  Companies in California and Ohio also implemented Aptech’s Profitvue® multiproperty accounting system to streamline their back office processes. 

M&R Hotel Group Sustains Growth with Execuvue® BI
“M&R Hotel Group began years ago with QuickBooks and upgraded to Profitvue multiproperty financials as it grew,” said Amit Gandhi, M&R’s president.  “We will use Execuvue® Business Intelligence to add in-depth performance analysis of our hotels and to assess the cost and revenue ratios of potential investment opportunities,” Gandhi said.

Execuvue delivers business insights on a mobile-ready BI platform with an unlimited combination of user-defined report layouts. Execuvue also leverages recent advances in text analytic technology for sentiment tracking linked to hotel performance.  The system converts written online ratings, comment card detail and other guest satisfaction measures into quantifiable metrics. 

San Ysidro Ranch selected Aptech’s Targetvue® to improve budgeting and forecasting. Targetvue is a hospitality-specific solution that eliminates the need for correcting and recombining multiple spreadsheets.  Targetvue’s consolidated forecasts and reports may be fully integrated with both Execuvue and Profitvue.
Execuvue is a Web-based enterprise business intelligence application for large and small hotel companies, and coordinates data from various 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 rely on Execuvue.

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 consolidating 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 accounting, 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.
