June 16, 2005 - Sandals Resorts has completed installation of Aptech's Execuvue® Business Intelligence to automate and analyze multi-currency key performance metrics for its 20 resort properties, Aptech announced today.

David Davies, CFO for Sandals said, "The Sandals management team is using Execuvue to more efficiently manage its financial reporting in terms of time, accuracy and the ability to react on a daily and weekly basis."
.

Aptech's president, Jay Troutman, said, "Sandals is a truly international chain with separate currencies and conversion rates at many of its hotels requiring standardization for accurate corporate performance analysis.  The Sandals management team is using Execuvue to gather operating data from all its resorts.  With the strong recovery being experienced by many segments of the travel industry I believe Sandals is taking sound action to automate its financial reporting to identify inappropriate expenses before they impact the chain’s profitability."
Jay Troutman
