Extended Stay Hotels Installs Execuvue® Business Intelligence for 681 Properties
Extended Stay Hotels completed its implementation of the Aptech Execuvue Business Intelligence system that automates data gathering and operational performance management for its 681 properties.
 
Steve Licht, vice president–controller for Extended Stay Hotels, said, “We believe in business intelligence services to keep our operating costs low while still providing high value to our customers, and Execuvue helps us tremendously in this endeavor. The system delivers comprehensive performance and comp-set data, which enables us to operate more efficiently by basing our business decisions on better information.”  

Extended Stay Hotels uses the Execuvue enterprise business intelligence system to gather and analyze daily operating data from its properties to increase revenue.  Execuvue is interfaced with the Extended Stay Hotels’ front office system and other corporate applications to eliminate manual data entry.

“Extended Stay Hotels selected the Aptech system for its strong hospitality business intelligence and operational reporting that includes Smith Travel Research STAR data,” explained Licht.  “Execuvue lets us focus on revenue performance by evaluating our market share and establishing comp-set comparisons.”  

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

Targetvue, an integral component of Aptech’s Performance Management suite, gives operators the ability to build flexible operating budgets, and set goals for various aspects of their enterprise.
 
Profitvue, is a widely used thin-client, Web-enabled hospitality back-office solution that easily handles single or multiproperty and multicompany accounting, and incorporates accounts payable, general ledger, budgeting, forecasting 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 over 2,500 installations, 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 over 35 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.

Aptech will be exhibiting at HITEC 2007 in Orlando, Fla., June 20-22.  Please visit booth No. 525 to receive a complete demonstration of Aptech’s Execuvue, Profitvue, Targetvue and Webvue solutions.
