Urgo Hotels and Resorts Installs Targetvue to Standardize Budget for 40 Properties

“Targetvue gives Urgo one platform with one budget for our 40 properties, not multiple spreadsheet variations,” said Jim Bowne, VP/corporate controller, at Urgo Hotels and Resorts. “Targetvue provides Urgo with one version of the budget. Each property can make its budget updates and we have a workbook that reflects each property’s daily updates. We review and accept the changes at the corporate office, lock the budget, and send to ownership for approval.”

The Targetvue budgeting and forecasting system HOSPITALITY UPGRADE www.hospitalityupgrade.com Spring 2019 69 provides an automated forecasting platform that builds on daily updated performance data from property operations. It is a continuous pulse meter that compares actual against plan. This living budget gives operators the ability to plan day by day for the greatest profitability.

“Targetvue made Urgo’s own custom chart work,” said Bowne. “Aptech made modifications to suit Urgo’s operations. With Targetvue we can refine processes and make changes as the process/company evolves. Our budget process is driven at the property level. The general manager and the team oversees the initial development of the budget. Our corporate team reviews and provides guidance for the property’s data and goals.”

Targetvue went live at Urgo in fourth quarter 2018. “Many of our entities need data fast and Targetvue helps us stay ahead of the curve to get numbers we need to react timely to changes in operations,” Bowne said.
