Responding to Customer Demand

Aptech’s commitment to exceptional customer service is well-known throughout the hospitality industry. Recognizing a growing need for swift access to financial and operational data, Aptech addressed this challenge by developing the PVNG Dashboard.

“Users requested a way to see critical metrics like accounts payable, general ledger details, and statistical data – all on a single screen,” explains Aptech President Jill Wilder. “Previously, generating such insights required running multiple reports and inquiries. We identified this as a gap in the PVNG solution and set out to bridge it.”

The Power of Real-Time Data

The PVNG Dashboard delivers a real-time snapshot of key performance indicators (KPIs) including:

  • Bank Account Balances: Gain instant insight into the current balances of all your bank accounts.
  • Top Vendor Invoices: Quickly identify outstanding invoices from your top five vendors.
  • Accounts Payable Aging: Analyze the age of your accounts payable, categorized by current, 30+ days, 60+ days, and 90+ days outstanding.
  • Comparative KPI Analysis: Track performance trends over time by comparing yesterday’s data, month-to-date figures, and year-over-year metrics for user-selected KPIs.

Enhanced Decision-Making

“Our customers are eager to see the PVNG Dashboard in action at HITEC,” says Wilder. “This tool grants real-time access to financial data, enabling hoteliers to monitor performance and identify trends as they occur. This immediacy empowers them to react swiftly to market shifts and operational challenges.”

The PVNG Dashboard empowers data-driven decision-making by consolidating information from various sources into a user-friendly interface. This eliminates the need for time-consuming report generation and analysis, allowing operators to focus on strategic initiatives.

Accessibility and Flexibility

Similar to Aptech’s Execuvue (Business Intelligence) and Targetvue (Budgeting & Forecasting) dashboards, the PVNG Dashboard boasts seamless accessibility from any web browser. This ensures hoteliers can access critical financial data anytime, anywhere, on their mobile phones, tablets, laptops, or desktops.

The PVNG Dashboard comes standard with the next software release scheduled for July 2024. “We encourage attendees at HITEC to visit Booth 2644 to experience the PVNG Dashboard firsthand and provide valuable feedback,” says Wilder. “This is the initial release, and we plan to continuously develop the dashboard based on customer input, incorporating additional features and flexibility.”
