Business Intelligence Dashboards: A Heads-Up Performance Display That Keeps Operations on Plan
Hospitality companies are implementing business intelligence (BI) systems at a rapid pace. Top performers including Starwood, Extended Stay America, Sage Hospitality, Peabody Hotel Group and Ashford Hospitality rely on Aptech’s Execuvue® BI solution for accurate data analysis to support their operations. 

Aptech is now rolling out the next generation of business intelligence.  The newest BI tools take informed decision making to the next level with on-screen dashboards – flexible graphic displays that communicate complex information quickly for rapid response to performance changes.  Dashboards enable quicker, more confident decision making by translating numerical information from multiple corporate systems into easily understood, visually rich presentations.  Gauges, charts and other graphical elements show multiple results in a visual format that frees managers from cumbersome hardcopy reports to save them time.
 
Hotel groups gain the greatest value from Execuvue dashboards because one screen can provide a 50,000-foot view of an entire hotel portfolio across regions, flags and segments – like a heads-up display of your global operation.  For example, underperforming properties or regions may come up red, others in green, so executives can easily identify areas that require action.  Dashboards give hospitality companies a tool to condense the stack of daily corporate reporting into a format that makes the most efficient use of an executive’s time.  It is simply a better, more effective way to leverage important operating data for faster decisions and higher profits.

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 browser simplicity.  Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Extended Stay Hotels, Sage Hospitality, Innkeepers Hospitality, Ashford Hospitality Trust, Peabody Hotel Group 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 more than 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 24/7 by experienced hotel industry professionals.
