"Glacier House Hotels wanted to be one of the first hotel companies to convert from Aptech's Profitvue Accounting system to its new PVNG solution," said Ryan Kucker, Glacier House CFO.
"The conversion to PVNG was smooth and all our templates, chart of accounts, A/P vendors and historical information came over perfectly.
"PVNG is intuitive and easy to use. Our team only needed a few hours to learn the system."
Kucker noted that PVNG is faster to navigate and convenient to use because it is web-based.
"Aptech's team provided excellent training. We can do rollups for our hotels with consolidated reporting or individual property financials. I can go into the system and find what I need without having to use it every day. It is that simple to learn."
PVNG is a totally new financial system with an easy to navigate architecture. The new system's robust functionality emerged from Aptech's legacy application, Profitvue, used by thousands of users.
Cam Troutman, Aptech vice president, said,
"We built PVNG from the ground up for the web based on Aptech's 45+ years of hotel accounting knowledge."
"We used the most current technology platform incorporating AP, GL, Statistics, Financials, and a Bank Reconciliation, all with easy to use, familiar browser navigation." The PVNG system easily handles single or multi-property accounting, and is deployed as a hosted service, streamlining common daily accounting procedures and offering highly flexible reporting.
"Glacier House Hotels' core focus is the purchase, development and construction of hospitality projects," Kucker said.
"PVNG handles the enterprise accounting for our six properties very well with all standard reports including trend reporting and 'trailing 12.' We like the system." -Ryan Kucker, Glacier House CFO.
