Highpointe Hotel Corporation Merges Property Performance Data on Aptech 3-System Platform
Highpointe Hotel Corporation, with 15 hotels, tracks property and company revenue, expenses and success with Aptech’s tightly integrated suite of online data collection and analysis solutions. Highpointe relies on Aptech’s Execuvue® Business Intelligence, Profitvue® Enterprise Back Office and Targetvue Budgeting and Forecasting systems for actionable same-day data collection and analysis that keeps the company on plan.

"Aptech is the only company in the industry I know of that provides all the systems and functionality we need on one tightly integrated platform,” said Mark Pate, Highpointe's assistant controller/IT director. “Much of our business is driven by the numbers from Execuvue. Aptech wrote interface programs so Highpointe’s payroll and HR systems could upload time and attendance data to Execuvue without staff having to rekey. Execuvue integrates that information with data on guest satisfaction, back office financials, Smith Travel Research, and soon TripAdvisor into our enterprise and property reporting system. Seeing this information side by side helps us understand the factors that influence performance and profitability so we make better business decisions."

Highpointe also uses Targetvue, Aptech’s budgeting and planning system. “Targetvue integrates with our other systems,” Pate said. “This saves us a great deal of time and makes our operation more efficient. We don't know any other vendor with three comprehensive solutions that allows property data to flow so smoothly between them. We think of Aptech as more of a strategic partner than a vendor."

Targetvue is Aptech’s 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.

Execuvue is Aptech’s IBM Cognos-based ASP enterprise hospitality business intelligence application that enables faster goal achievement for large and small hotel companies. 
 
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 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.  Webvue is designed for limited-service hotels and scalable to large enterprises. It 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 3,200 property clients, Aptech recognizes that each professional in the hospitality industry views accounting differently. The company delivers customized, Web-enabled solutions that can fit any operating requirement. 

Aptech has led the hospitality market for 45 years by leveraging change, 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.
