Westin Rio Mar Resort and Spa Benefits From
Its priZem Labor Intelligence Reporting Tool


May 2006 - Larry Vitale, Director of Finance of Westin Rio Mar Beach Resort & Golf in Puerto Rico praises the benefits of the priZem Labor Intelligence application installation at his property. Over the last few years, the use of this labor reporting tool has helped his Resort to have a better understanding of the very complex property labor expenses and property productivity. 

Westin Rio Mar Beach Resort & Golf will is now able to have a better understanding of the single largest expense and can easily analyze each department’s productivity, produce a labor forecast based upon chosen performance indicators automatically, and distribute reports by department via email to its managers quickly and easily. 

Utilizing the Labor Intelligence direct interface to the ADP Timesaver Time and Attendance database, actual hours and wages can be quickly imported directly from the Timesaver database in one step to create labor reports that eliminate labor variances. 

With Labor Intelligence, Westin Rio Mar Beach Resort & Golf can manage its extensive resort labor expense by producing labor reports that can be compared against forecast, budget, prior year with variances to forecast based on revenue and statistical data.

Mr. Vitale, states “Labor Intelligence saves us an enormous amount of time and allows us to produce the reports we need more flexibly and quickly than done previously via the spreadsheet method”.
