January is a great time to look ahead and plan for the growth and achievements we desire for the year. It’s crucial to put thought and intention into business success. In a recent Acumatica blog, Geoff Ashely says, “Success is not hard, but it is DELIBERATE. . . Being deliberate means doing the things you absolutely must do to succeed”.

So, what does your company need to succeed? How can technology bring you closer to your goals? What can you do to smooth the implementation of new technologies?

If you are still using disparate software programs for your hotel management, the answer to the first question is easy. You need an Enterprise Resource Planning platform as your total back-office solution.

Hotel Investor Apps ERP & Accounting software is tailored to meet the needs of hotel companies. It is designed to anticipate the complexities of your business and solve them, so you don’t have to.  

5 ways ERP technology can help you achieve your business goals:

  1. Reduce or Eliminate Data Entry – Saving Time & Reducing Errors. An ERP offers integrated modules for seamless data sharing between financial management, business intelligence, budgets & forecasts, purchase orders, and more. Additional integrations automatically import data from PMS and POS systems, or your bank accounts, for example.
  2. Close Your Books Faster – No more delays. Automated functionality reduces bottlenecks and backlogs like automated journal entries for intercompany transactions or automated bank reconciliation matching. Always have the timely intel you need for decision making.
  3. Automate Workflows. Automate tasks and processes, eliminating multiple steps, duplicate data entry, and expensive errors. Plus, schedule reports to send automatically, and set up multi-step workflows from AP approvals to notifications.
  4. Streamline and enhance communication – one centralized platform for accurate real-time data keeps everyone on the same page. Plus, automatically email decision makes reports in PDF or XLS exports, including budgets and forecasts. Keep all team members informed by tracking key metrics on personalized dashboards to reduce downtime and delays.
  5. The highest-level security – cloud-based ERP software incorporates multiple layers of security in its architecture. Your data is protected through redundant data centers, virtual servers, frequent data integrity checks, and frequent automatic security updates.
