Merani Hotel Group, an independent hotel management company with hotels and restaurants in Canada and the U.S., has upgraded their back-office software to Hotel Investor Apps ERP & Accounting for advanced capabilities, software integration, and international functionality.

“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 (HIA) is an ERP & accounting solution with unique functionality 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, delivering superior accounting functionality and critical analysis.

Charlie Fritsch, CEO of Hotel Investor Apps says, “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. 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 PMS or POS data”.

“The integrations are working great and saving time. However, it is not all about time. It is about the quality of the information coming into the system, so that we can use that data. We are getting better data now than before”, says Kloosterman.

Hotel Investor Apps ERP & Accounting software helps management stay informed with accurate, timely intelligence including dozens of pre-built hospitality reports, unlimited budgets, forecasting, automated PMS importing, POS importing, and additional integrations like payroll, time & attendance, and AP automation.
