Aptech Mobile GM Dashboards with STR Stats Give Operators Competitive Advantage
“All of Highpointe’s GMs use tablets and Aptech’s Execuvue® Reports to be totally mobile and stay current on property operations,” said Mark Pate, assistant controller and IT manager for Highpointe Hotel Corporation. Highpointe operates 15 hotels in three states. Its properties include Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites, Residence Inns and Marriott Courtyard flags.

“Execuvue automatically gathers data from all of our separate hotel property management systems daily and combines it with each property’s STR comp-set information,” said Pate. “Aptech merges the data, analyzes it and creates interactive reports and mobile tablet dashboards for every property. Each GM has a daily snapshot of his or her financial performance, labor costs against budget, guest satisfaction reports and their STR comp set comparisons on one screen.”

The GM Dashboard lets managers review guest service metrics from Marriott and SALT scores from Hilton. Pate said, “In the past I had to go to a separate location to get a snapshot of property financials, STR ranking, payroll and guest satisfaction. Now I can see all these important measures in one place. Highpointe’s managers can easily spot issues with performance against budget for payroll; the historic revenue comparison shows at a glance where I am, and where I should be.”

Highpointe also worked with Aptech to create mobile-friendly reports for its GM tablets. “With Aptech’s Active Reports on their tablets, our GMs can check department performance on interactive reports,” said Pate.
