“NCH used Aptech’s Profitvue multi-property accounting system for 30 years. We evaluated many systems and selected Aptech’s PVNG for future operations,” said Nina Selvaggi, New Castle Hotels & Resorts director of hotel accounting. “Aptech has more experience with hotel accounting software than any other provider and we value that expertise. We easily converted our 21 companies to Aptech’s new PVNG enterprise accounting platform. This was the smoothest system conversion I have ever been involved in. PVNG is an excellent financial accounting system for a reasonable price. The system is very user-friendly. There was very little I needed to do for the conversion, Aptech handled everything.”
Aptech’s browser-based PVNG Enterprise Accounting System simplifies accounting operations and safeguards data in the cloud. Its easy to navigate architecture, and robust functionality expands on Aptech’s Profitvue application used by thousands of hotel accounting professionals. PVNG supports one property or a large multi-brand, multi-property portfolio.
“Aptech is the industry standard for a reason; that reason is experience,” said Jill Wilder, Aptech vice president. “We worked closely with New Castle Hotels’ team during their installation. They are a great group of hospitality professionals that thoroughly understand multi-property, multi-company financial processes. Nina and her group put PVNG to work for NCH’s Marriott, Hilton and other flags easily.”
“PVNG gives us the flexibility to add users and restrict their roles within the program. This is important in multi-company operations,” Selvaggi said. “We now have all properties entering their own accounts payable invoices directly into PVNG. The properties have access to see the payment status of their vendors and this has streamlined our AP process. Financial Reports are simple to run and can be quickly converted into an Excel format. Aptech’s support and training are excellent. After conversion, Aptech assigned one person to guide us through the new system. She handled all our concerns quickly. We are very pleased with PVNG and the support we receive from Aptech.”
PVNG is the next generation of enterprise accounting. It is uniquely engineered to accommodate a variety of deployment options and can easily handle both single and multi-property accounting. PVNG uses the most current technology platform and incorporates AP, GL, AR, Statistics, Financials, and a Bank Reconciliation, all with familiar browser navigation.
“PVNG makes it simple for operators to become 11th Edition-compliant by implementing its packaged chart of accounts and financial statements. Plus, PVNG’s cloud platform lets Aptech monitor and support all aspects of users’ system processes for hands-on support if needed,” Wilder said.
