Bellstar Hotels, Milestone Hospitality implement accounting system

Bellstar Hotels & Resorts operates six resorts and a home office in Alberta, Canada, including the Grande Rockies Resort.

Bellstar Hotels & Resorts and Milestone Hospitality Management implemented Aptech Computer Systems’ PVNG enterprise accounting system. PVNG is Aptech’s next generation enterprise accounting hotel software solution that is deployed in the cloud.

Bellstar Hotels & Resorts operates six resorts and a home office in Alberta, Canada. The home office will use PVNG for enterprise general ledger, accounts payables and financials, the company said.

“Our property GMs and department heads will use PVNG to review expenses and financial statements,” said Leslie Ducommun, Bellstar’s corporate controller, in a statement. “PVNG allows us to enter our budgets and forecasts in the system and compare those numbers with the current period. PVNG also lets us download results from the resort PMS.”

PVNG is a totally new financial system with an easy-to-navigate architecture.  The PVNG system easily handles single or multiproperty accounting, and is deployed as a hosted service, streamlining common daily accounting procedures and offering highly flexible reporting.

“Aptech understands hospitality accounting and designed PVNG’s financials to conform to the hotel industry uniform system of accounts,” Brendon Ratley, corporate controller for Milestone Hospitality Management. “Every other system we reviewed required a report generator to convert their system’s reports. Aptech hosts our system and PVNG interfaces with our payroll and property-management systems.”

Milestone will finalize its four-property implementation in 4Q 2017.
