Konover Hotel Corp. Installs Execuvue Business Intelligence, Profitvue Accounting to Support Growth 
Konover completed installation of Aptech’s Profitvue® centralized corporate accounting software, Webvue online data transfer system, and the Execuvue® business intelligence system to support its recent growth.  Konover’s addition of 12 properties in one year was simplified by Aptech’s enterprise back office system, Profitvue, which enables the rapid inclusion of multiple assets to financial systems.

With Aptech’s financial management tools, Konover went from a monthly closing process to daily trial-balance flash reporting for all 15 properties, which enables management to assess performance on a nearly real-time basis.  Each property inputs its end-of-day numbers into a Webvue online template linked to the company’s Profitvue enterprise back office system for financials and analysis.  The daily data collection and reporting enhances Konover’s decision making, while improving communications both to and from its properties.  Konover’s corporate team receives each property’s daily numbers, analyzes the metrics with Aptech’s Execuvue Business Intelligence system and then communicates the results back to the properties for improved business practices.  The process results in better teamwork and the ability to compare and contrast each hotel’s operation competitively to pinpoint areas of improvement.

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 scaleable, 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.
