The Hilton Chicago and Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center has learned over the years that Aptech is here for them, no matter what they need – be it a customized report or adding an entire new financial platform.

For the Hilton Chicago and Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center, the simplicity and accessibility of its enterprise accounting solution is key to managing a successful and streamlined financial operation. The bleisure destination is running its general ledger, accounts payable, statistics, financials, and bank reconciliation processes on PVNG by Aptech. Users say the ability to jump between financials from one property to the next, train staff quickly on the system, and use only one platform for multi-property accounting is a game changer.

Director of Finance Maridel Canaday said the dual facility has been running on Aptech for several years. When they learned that Aptech’s legacy accounting application, Profitvue, was being phased out, migrating to PVNG was a logical decision due not only to the system’s flexibility and browser navigation, but because Aptech’s customer service and support has historically been superb, and it is something Canaday said she and her team have come to depend on.

“Aptech’s customer service has always been excellent,” Canaday said. “The staff is very helpful and quick to respond. Good support is hard to find, and it’s not something we wanted to walk away from. Once we saw how easy it would be to work within PVNG – our management team can log in and run reports from anywhere and we can import data from the PMS, Payroll, POS, and export GL transactions to Excel with ease – the decision to stay with Aptech was a breeze.”

With the switch to PVNG complete, Canaday said the company is now looking to upgrade its budgeting process to Aptech’s Targetvue solution. This tool will give the Hilton Chicago and Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center the ability to build flexible driver-based budgets and forecasts, manage the planning process from a central location, and set goals for every area of their organization.

“Aptech has been developing web-based, customizable, financial-management software for more than 50 years, and part of our success stems from building long-term relationships with our valued customers,” said Cam Troutman, Aptech Vice President. “The Hilton Chicago and Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center has learned over the years that Aptech is here for them, no matter what they need – be it a customized report or adding an entire new financial platform. We are delighted that they opted to stay a part of the Aptech family and we look forward to expanding our relationship and introducing new solutions in the future.”
