Hawaiian Luxury Destination Taps Aptech for New Back Office System, Custom Financials for its Unique Operation
PITTSBURGH – January 8, 2019 – Aptech Computer Systems announced that Kahala Hotel & Resort installed PVNG Enterprise Accounting to upgrade its back office financial processes. The Kahala Hotel & Resort is a respected luxury oceanfront destination known for its gracious Hawaiian hospitality and elegant amenities. Browser-based PVNG 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.
“Kahala Hotel & Resort upgraded its back office accounting software to PVNG because it is a strong hospitality financial system that is easy to use and simple to learn,” said Thushara Perera, Kahala’s director of finance. “PVNG was an easy transition. Aptech trained our team online and its professional staff is always available when we have questions.” The PVNG implementation for Kahala Hotel & Resort was done using the property’s specific chart of accounts. “All of our financial statements were custom reports written by Aptech to match Kahala’s own chart of accounts,” Perera said.
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.
Sam Costa, Aptech director of customer service said, “The Kahala Hotel & Resort is a widely known full-service Hawaiian destination with five restaurants and a luxury spa. Its complex operation was a perfect fit for PVNG. We converted the system’s financials to reflect Kahala’s unique chart of accounts. PVNG makes it simple to convert data from other back office systems. Plus, its cloud platform lets Aptech monitor and support all aspects of the upgrade process.”
