Benchmark to Standardize All Conference Centers, Hotels on Profitvue Hospitality Software.

Aptech’s installation and support staff are the most professional, reliable and proficient I have worked with in 23 years in our industry

Aptech Computer Systems, Inc., a leading hospitality software solutions company, announced today that Benchmark Hospitality International selected Aptech’s Profitvue enterprise back office business accounting software for its 33 conference centers and hotels, and for corporate financial accounting. Installation of Aptech’s hotel software is underway with completion anticipated by year end.

Alison Yee, operations controller for Benchmark Hospitality International, said, "By standardizing all its properties on the Profitvue system, Benchmark can provide daily asset performance analysis for more profitable hotel management decisions for owners. We are also installing Profitvue in Benchmark's home office to enhance synergy between corporate accounting and our properties, and expect to utilize Aptech's Execuvue business intelligence system in the future." Yee continued, "It makes strategic sense for Benchmark to install financial accounting systems at our home office that are consistent with systems at our managed properties." Benchmark Hospitality International, based in The Woodlands, Texas, near Houston, specializes in professional management of high quality resorts, hotels and conference centers for more than 20 ownership groups.

Aptech Director of Sales, Cam Troutman said, “Profitvue back office is a perfect fit for Benchmark because it allows the company to develop its own uniform corporate-wide reporting and chart of accounts for side-by-side performance evaluations. Benchmark’s properties email these reports daily to the corporate office for real-time management review.” Profitvue is designed specifically for the hospitality industry and used by hundreds of successful hotel companies.

“Aptech’s installation and support staff are the most professional, reliable and proficient I have worked with in 23 years in our industry,” said Alison Yee. With only three properties installed, Ms. Yee noted that Profitvue is already enabling their hotels to realize considerable savings in the time it normally takes staff to input daily property data for corporate reporting.
