Texas Western Installs Execuvue Cloud BI to Automate Data Gathering, Analysis and Reporting for 53 Hotels
Texas Western Hospitality (TW) operates 53 Marriott and Hilton full-service and select-service properties. Until recently, TW received most of its property data via email or fax, and its team had to hand code Excel reports for managers and owners. This was a huge accounting task. 

Everything changed when Texas Western implemented Aptech’s Execuvue® Business Intelligence (BI) system to automatically collect and download property performance metrics from its Hilton OnQ and Marriott PMSs daily. Execuvue consolidates PMS data from 53 hotels along with labor numbers, Smith Travel Research output and a variety of additional information from TW’s corporate accounting system in one place. Texas Western’s team uses Execuvue to easily access data at all its hotels for analysis and online reporting. The company uses its BI to conduct multiproperty rollups and comparisons, generate daily revenue and flash reports, and email property-specific reports to the appropriate managers.

Mobile-ready Execuvue is proving to be an ideal property analysis tool for traveling asset managers. Some TW executives review reports on the road from iPads® and can even track operations on their iPhones®.

Execuvue is a Web-based enterprise business intelligence application for large and small hotel companies. It coordinates data from Smith Travel Research and many other third-party systems into accessible information with familiar browser simplicity. Extended Stay Hotels, Island Hospitality Management and Ashford Hospitality Trust are just a few of the successful companies that 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 to correct and recombine multiple spreadsheets for consolidating and reporting.

Profitvue is a widely used thin-client, Internet-enabled enterprise 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 a Web-based extension of Profitvue that supports property accounting and reporting.  Designed for limited-service hotels and scalable to large enterprises, Webvue enables properties to quickly and easily send and access financial and statistical data and generate reports online. The system provides real-time access to financials at any time from any location, and is centrally controlled and fully secure.

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. 

Aptech has led the hospitality market for 40 years in leveraging change by valuing human relationships and applying technology to solve complex business problems. Experienced hotel industry professionals support all of Aptech’s applications seven days a week and 24 hours a day.
