Pinnacle Hotel Management Integrates Accounting, Budgeting/Forecasting and Business Intelligence on Aptech Solutions
“Pinnacle’s owners and managers want to see property performance from different angles,” said Monica Nichols, director of finance for Pinnacle Hotels. “We use Aptech’s Execuvue®Business Intelligence for performance analysis. We leverage Execuvue’s ad hoc report building tool to drag and drop raw data elements to create custom reports our regional managers’ request.” Pinnacle operates 24 properties made up chiefly of Marriott and Hilton brands. 
“Execuvue lets me analyze data to quickly spotlight specific information, like T/A fees as a percentage of revenue. I also create reports for specific time frames and prior years to provide as much or as little detail as needed on the fly,” Nichols said. “This kind of precise breakdown makes analyzing our operation’s performance much easier. Execuvue’s reporting often gives us ‘ah ha’ moments that help us be more profitable and creates a culture of numbers-based management. As a company, we now make much better decisions when it comes to budgeting and forecasting.”
Pinnacle’s property managers enter their budget numbers in Aptech’s Targetvue budgeting and forecasting system. Nichols said, “Targetvue eliminates the need to correct and consolidate multiple spreadsheets for review and reporting. I spread annual expenses and other metrics over 12 months. I set up reports so at budget time I can see changes against prior years. This data goes to Execuvue for next year’s forecast, which cuts hours of time off processing budget reports. Execuvue and Targetvue are essential tools for our budget season’s processes.”
