Benchmark Selects Execuvue® Business Intelligence for 30-property Group
“In 2009 it is all about financial performance,” said Rodney Thiel, vice president of information technology for Benchmark Hospitality International.  “Execuvue will give Benchmark’s managers and corporate team the information they need to operate their properties more profitably.”

Benchmark Hospitality selected Aptech because it is a hospitality industry specialist and the Execuvue Business Intelligence system is a proven, powerful tool that will enable Benchmark to establish more profitable management strategies for our owners.  Benchmark, which operates 30 independent full service properties for multiple ownership groups nationwide, selected the Execuvue Business Intelligence system to automate data gathering and performance management processes to drive better business decisions for its properties and corporate offices.  

Benchmark utilizes centralized payroll and accounting and Execuvue will extract data from the systems and other property applications to provide daily analysis and flexible ad-hoc reporting to enable managers to base business decisions on near-real-time information.  

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.  Noble Investment Group, Extended Stay Hotels, 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, statistics 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. 

For over 40 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.
