Merani Hotel Group upgrades back-office software

Merani Hotel Group, an independent hotel management company with hotels and restaurants in Canada and the U.S., has upgraded its back-office software to Hotel Investor Apps ERP & Accounting.

“We were looking for more advanced capabilities and accounting software that we could use on both sides of the border,” said Paul Kloosterman, director of finance and accounting at Merani Hotel Group. “HIA helped us move quicker than I could on our own or with another vendor. We like that it is cloud-based, and we don’t need to worry about servers to back up, and, that its scalable.”

Hotel Investor Apps is an enterprise resource planning and accounting product designed for hospitality and developed on the Acumatica ERP platform. HIA offers one platform to manage all hotel operations; it works as a central intelligence hub, bringing data from multiple systems to streamline processes. 

“A typical limited-service hotel may have half a dozen systems that your staff is logging into on a daily or weekly basis. HIA eliminates this time by integrating your separate systems as well as streaming live websites to personalized dashboards,” said Charlie Fritsch, CEO of Hotel Investor Apps. “For example, the BankConnect API can auto import daily bank balances and transaction details, saving an estimated 5 minutes per day, per hotel. In other cases, integrations save time by reducing errors associated with manual entry, such as for [property-management system] or [point-of-sale] data.”

Hotel Investor Apps ERP & Accounting software helps management stay informed with intelligence including dozens of prebuilt hospitality reports, unlimited budgets, forecasting, automated PMS importing, POS importing and additional integrations like payroll, time and attendance, and accounts payable automation.
