As hotel groups continue to centralize operations and controls, Profitvue provides an ideal platform that enables managers to maintain corporate financial oversight without concerns about system maintenance
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 19, 2008
Aptech Computer Systems, Inc., the leading provider of business intelligence and back office systems for the hospitality industry, announced today its Profitvue back office financial accounting software solution and Webvue Internet data collection tools were installed by Heritage Hotels and Resorts headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico and IHP Hotels in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. The companies operate a combined total of 11 properties.
"Profitvue is a full-function, easy to use centralized accounting system that enables Heritage Hotels and Resorts to consolidate its property's' financials on one accounting reporting platform," said Felene Koen, Heritage Hotels and Resorts' corporate controller. "We chose Profitvue because our team has had positive experience with the system previously." Heritage Hotels and Resorts use Profitvue as a remote ASP accounting application hosted by Aptech at its secure data center. The company accesses the system via web browsers its corporate headquarters and at each hotel, which reduces hardware cost and frees managers from the responsibility of supporting application hardware and software. Heritage Hotels and Resorts is an independent hotel company that operates six distinctive full-service properties in New Mexico and Arizona offering an authentic cultural experience to the everyday traveler.
IHP Hospitality Group operates five properties throughout Puerto Rico that carry Marriott, Cendant and other flags. Aptech hosts the Profitvue system for IHP in Aptech's Pittsburgh data center. IHP properties require only a PC and an Internet connection to provide property managers with 24-hour access to their hotels' data. Aptech's cost effective Profitvue ASP multi-property accounting system lets IHP's managers focus on successful hotel management operations and frees them from technology concerns.
Profitvue streamlines hospitality accounting processes by automating:
- Property data gathering and consolidation
- Standardized chart of accounts
- Business analysis
"As hotel groups continue to centralize operations and controls, Profitvue provides an ideal platform that enables managers to maintain corporate financial oversight without concerns about system maintenance," explained Aptech's Director of Sales Cam Troutman. "The ASP Profitvue enterprise back office solution is widely used by multi-property operators that want to minimize hardware expenses and provide ownership with flexible financials from any location."
