Sandals Resorts Installs Execuvue Business Intelligence for 18 Properties; Uses Execuvue to Standardize Multi-Currency Revenue Reporting and Performance Analysis Across Its International Resort Chain
Sandals Resorts has installed Aptech’s Execuvueâ„¢ business intelligence to centralize financial management, automate multi-currency evaluation and analyze key performance metrics for its 18 resort properties. The centralized Execuvue system is hosted at Sandals’ corporate offices. Financials and other measures are received from each hotel daily and incorporated into a daily management report to assess performance and furnish strategic decision support.

Aptech’s President Jay Troutman said, “Sandals is a truly international chain with separate currencies and conversion rates at many of its hotels requiring standardization for accurate corporate performance analysis. The Sandals management team is using Execuvue to gather operating data from all of its resorts and then conducting flexible analysis in whatever currency they require. The information is readily available for property comparisons and to develop best practices for greater profitability.”

Montego Bay, Jamaica-based Sandals is also using Execuvue for budget evaluations to measure key areas such as room revenue, wedding participation, occupancy and other metrics across properties. Sandals is taking advantage of Execuvue daily management reporting to review a snapshot of each property’s performance side by side for more accurate enterprise management.

Execuvue is an Internet-enabled 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, Concord Hospitality, Innkeepers Hospitality, Winston Hotels, Inc., Peabody Hotel Group, Hershey Entertainment and other successful companies use Execuvue business intelligence.
