New Castle Hotels & Resorts upgraded its back-office system to Aptech Computer Systems’ PVNG enterprise financial accounting to centralize processes for 21 properties. New Castle Hotels & Resorts is an operator of Marriott International, Hilton, Choice Hotels International and independent properties.

“NCH used Aptech’s Profitvue multiproperty accounting system for 30 years. We evaluated many systems and selected Aptech’s PVNG for future operations,” Nina Selvaggi, New Castle's director of hotel accounting, said in a statement. “We easily converted our 21 [properties] to Aptech’s new PVNG enterprise accounting platform. This was the smoothest system conversion I have ever been involved in. The system is very user-friendly. There was very little I needed to do for the conversion.”
Aptech’s browser-based PVNG simplifies accounting operations and safeguards data in the cloud. Its easy-to-navigate architecture and robust functionality expands on Aptech’s Profitvue application. PVNG supports one property or a large multibrand, multiproperty portfolio.
“PVNG gives us the flexibility to add users and restrict their roles within the program. This is important in multicompany operations,” Selvaggi said. “We now have all properties entering their own accounts payable invoices directly into PVNG. The properties have access to see the payment status of their vendors and this has streamlined our AP process. Financial reports are simple to run and can be quickly converted into an Excel format. Aptech’s support and training are excellent. After conversion, Aptech assigned one person to guide us through the new system. She handled all our concerns quickly.”
