PVNG Upgrade Lifts Data to The Cloud; Lets Managers Instantly Compare Performance for Better Business Decisions
PITTSBURGH – February 6, 2019 – Aptech Computer Systems announced that Airline Hotels upgraded its financial system to PVNG Enterprise Hotel Accounting Software at nine properties. Airline Hotels is a second-generation, family-founded, hospitality company, based out of Saskatchewan that owns and operates hotels. Browser-based PVNG hotel accounting software simplifies accounting operations and safeguards data in the cloud. Aptech is the leading provider of hospitality business intelligence, budgeting and forecasting, and enterprise hotel accounting software systems.
“Airline Hotels tapped PVNG in late 2018 to migrate its financial operation and chain data to the cloud for easier access and better business decisions,” said Todd Asmundson, corporate controller for Airline Hotels. “PVNG is a full-function hospitality enterprise back office system that is very easy to use. We migrated our data with Microsoft SharePoint to put all our records in the cloud. We trained our managers to access their property data and see the numbers for all our hotels. Seeing the performance data helps them manage better by comparing operation strategies from other properties. This also frees our accounting staff to focus on analysis rather than supporting management inquiries.”
Airline Hotels previously used Aptech’s Profitvue Back Office Accounting system and converted files and reports to PVNG. “Profitvue did a great job for Airline for many years. We work closely with Aptech’s team and they provide excellent support for us up in Canada,” Asmundson said. “PVNG provides a large number of great reports and handles the Canadian dollar and date conventions perfectly.”
PVNG lets operators have total flexibility allowing or limiting data access across multiple properties. “We used to do benchmark reporting that compared property performance. PVNG lets our managers do their own evaluations. We can restrict access to specific data, but we want our managers to see how their associates are doing. For example, our lounge managers can compare revenue and expenses at other properties to learn what management practices are working best. PVNG works very well for us.”
Sam Costa, Aptech director of customer service said, “Airline Hotels had a smooth conversion from Profitvue to PVNG’s cloud platform. Their nine property management teams picked up the new system right away. Their system license lets them have unlimited users per property so Airline’s team can make the best use of PVNG’s data access flexibility.”
PVNG’s user interface is built on an easy to navigate architecture. Its robust functionality and platform is completely new. The system expands on processes valued by thousands of accounting professionals that use Aptech’s legacy application, Profitvue. The PVNG Enterprise Accounting System supports one property or a large multi-brand, multi-property portfolio. It uses the most current technology platform and incorporates AP, GL, AR, Statistics, Financials, and a Bank Reconciliation, all with familiar browser navigation. PVNG also makes it simple to become 11th Edition compliant by implementing its packaged chart of accounts and financial statements. PVNG’s cloud platform also lets Aptech monitor and support all aspects of their system processes for hands on support if needed.”
