“PVNG Hotel Accounting Software Saves Time and Makes Our Workload Lighter”

PITTSBURGH, August 19, 2020 – Aptech Computer Systems announced that Granduca Hospitality Services, LLC installed the PVNG Enterprise Back Office Accounting System to upgrade its financial processes. “It was like going from a Model T to a Ferrari,” said Ben Moore, area director of finance for Granduca Hotels. 

Granduca’s hotel accounting software evaluation was triggered when its previous system proved not flexible or scalable enough for its needs. “We wanted a leading-edge enterprise back office that was scalable, easy to use with flexible financial reporting. We also wanted a GAAP compliant secure web-based system that would let our team work remotely,” Moore said. “PVNG does it all. It is so easy to use that one of our accountants was able to learn it in five minutes. It has a secure-access front end that allows users access to specific system areas while keeping the primary system secure.”

PVNG is an enterprise hotel accounting system that supports one property or large multi-brand, multi-property portfolios. It uses the most current technology incorporating AP, GL, A/R, statistics, financials, and bank reconciliation with easy to use browser navigation. Aptech is an IBM Premier Solution Provider and Prophix Premier Business Partner offering web-enabled business intelligence, budgeting, and hotel accounting software.

Granduca Hotels runs a complex full-service multi-property operation that requires a standardized GL for all its properties with robust, drill-down reporting. PVNG delivers. “Our properties host large events and provide catering and related services,” Moore said. “Our bankers and investors want to see overall profitability and the capture rate on food and beverage for all our departments. Property financials must report our production spot on. PVNG is truly banker- and investor-friendly. It tracks everything perfectly and lets us analyze why the numbers are what they are.”

System strength and professional support were a large part of Granduca’s Aptech decision. “PVNG is a great enterprise back office system and Aptech’s team are hotel professionals that know how to simplify operations. This was important to our decision,” Moore said. “The system’s A/P module lets us upload transactions for management review prior to posting so we can verify the data before they hit production numbers. We enter invoices, review and post them without having to leave the process. Smaller staffs mean time is more important to hotel operations today. PVNG saves us time and makes our workload lighter.”

PVNG provides secure web access for flexible staff placement

“I use a web browser to access PVNG remotely,” Moore said. “PVNG’s remote access flexibility lets us grow our operation without increasing staff. We can run a very efficient operation and I can easily understand our operation better now.” Moore noted that Aptech engineered PVNG to communicate well with many third-party system partners including time and attendance, and multiple property management, and other systems. 

Sam Costa, Aptech director of customer service and support, said, “Ben Moore and his Granduca Hotels team are really putting PVNG to work to standardize company reporting and identify the most profitable areas of its operation. Implementing PVNG at hotel companies like Granduca is a pleasure because they know their business and what they want to deliver to investors and guests.”
