Horizon Hospitality Implements Aptech’s Profitvue Enterprise Accounting Across Multiple Flags
Horizon Hospitality Management installed Aptech’s Profitvue® enterprise back office solution to streamline accounting processes across its multiple branded properties.  Horizon Hospitality now utilizes Profitvue to perform financial rollups for its Hampton Inns, Homewood Suites and Cambria Suites hotels.

Aptech’s extensive hospitality experience was important in Horizon’s decision to implement Profitvue. “We spoke to several Aptech clients with multiple properties and flags and found that Profitvue works very well for them,” said John Hannan, chief operating officer for Horizon Hospitality. “Operators consistently told us that Profitvue is easy to use and that Aptech provides excellent support. Aptech has 40 years of experience in the hotel business. Profitvue is designed for hotels, it is not a canned generic accounting system adapted to hotel use. Aptech’s team has considerable hotel experience and this cemented our decision.”

Profitvue Supports Horizon Hospitality’s Growth
Horizon wanted a centralized platform for multiple flags and hotels to provide control, oversee its income audits, general ledger entries and other accounting processes.  “None of our properties is a big-box format,” Hannan said.  “Accounts receivable is done on property with our PMSs, and our property managers review audit data before it goes to corporate. Profitvue enables us to support this autonomy for the brand flags while rolling up all our financials into a single reporting platform for greater operating efficiency.”

Aptech offers the Execuvue business intelligence and Profitvue budgeting and back office accounting systems for hospitality companies.

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.  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.

Profitvue is a widely used enterprise thin-client, Internet-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 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 property clients, 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 more than 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.
