Cesco Righetti, Director of Finance at the hotel, comments: “We had approached Datel in the lead up to opening our new hotel. Having extensively reviewed other products on the market, we considered Sage 200 to be the best product available for our needs. We chose Datel to supply our Sage 200 business management system, along with the Datel FUSION e-Requisitions online purchase requisition system. Datel also recommended that we use A La Carte Financial Intelligence from their partner Excel in Business to meet our specific reporting requirements.”
Outlining the reasons why the business needs a strong software platform, Cesco says: “Any international hotel needs a uniform system of accounts to provide a platform for the required reporting. We found it extremely helpful to have Datel’s and A La Carte’s assistance in developing and configuring the necessary reporting in line with the strict standards that apply across the business.”
Since the Bulgari Hotel & Residences opened for business, every department head has been using Sage 200 to issue a report that shows their performance on a weekly or monthly basis. Cesco says: “This is a great tool because it allows us to understand the details where a cost has been allocated and to track the flow of revenue into the business.”
The Sage 200 solution has also been very beneficial in enabling department heads to monitor the stock on hand on a daily basis and to place an order for stock held by other departments. Cesco notes: “The system is very user-friendly and easy to understand. Training our users has proved very straightforward and every department head is comfortable in using FUSION e-Requisitions as a purchasing system.”
The Sage 200-based solution is supporting the Bulgari Hotel in expanding both the brand and the hotel chain. Looking ahead, Cesco says: “We are definitely planning to open more hotels and I’m sure that our very good relationship with Datel will enable us to build on the solid, consistent software platform already in place and easily extend it to other hotels in other locations.”
