Aptech Computer Systems announced that Oliver Companies, Inc. upgraded its back office financial processes to PVNG Enterprise Accounting. Oliver Companies converted from Aptech’s Profitvue® hotel accounting software to web-based PVNG to enable mobile system access to company financials and property performance reports. Oliver Companies is based in Duluth, MN. It operates 18 properties across eight states that fly flags from Hilton, IHG, Choice and others. Aptech is the leading provider of hospitality business intelligence, budgeting and forecasting, and enterprise hotel accounting software systems.

“Oliver Companies upgraded its accounting platform to Aptech’s PVNG because it is a flexible, online enterprise solution that lets our team oversee operations while traveling,” said Nicole Murphy, Oliver Companies assistant controller. “Mobile access is important to us. We have two offices and our CFO can log onto PVNG and work wherever she is. Plus, if we have a heavy snow day we can work from our homes.” Murphy noted that Oliver’s conversion to PVNG went well. “Aptech’s team helped us build processes for our 18 properties to share a standard format. Our full-service conference properties have slightly different requirements than our limited service hotels. PVNG hotel accounting software handles them all very well.”

PVNG provides an easy to navigate architecture. Its robust functionality emerged from Aptech’s legacy application, Profitvue, used by thousands of hotel accounting professionals. PVNG 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 is easy to use because each field is clearly marked so we get our work done faster,” Murphy said. “The system’s processes are self-explanatory and intuitive. We just started a new accountant; he learned the system quickly and got started right away.” Oliver Companies also uses Aptech’s Execuvue® Business Intelligence System. “PVNG automatically uploads property data to our Execuvue system nightly so we have same-day information on property performance to help us manage better.”

System upgrades evolve effortlessly because PVNG is web-based and hosted at Aptech’s secure data center. “I am pleased with how responsive Aptech has been with our conversion,” Murphy said. “We had functionality requests to make the system fit Oliver’s operations. Aptech made the changes quickly. Aptech values its customers, like Oliver Companies, and this shows by listening to our requests and implementing them to make our operation smoother.”
