New Business Intelligence Integration with Inova

Hotel Investor Apps and Inova API Integration

Hotel Investor Apps (HIA), the leading hospitality ERP platform, today announced its two-way, direct API integration with Inova Payroll (Inova), a national payroll and HR service provider, to streamline payroll processes and provide real-time labor business intelligence. 

The Inova integration will work directly with HIA’s business intelligence and labor management tool to help hoteliers make smarter labor decisions by offering real-time labor analysis. The Inova payroll and time & attendance data will be layered onto financial and operational data, so hotel companies can continuously monitor labor expenses and analyze labor metrics by date, hotel, department or position to identify areas in need of improvement and acknowledge top performers. 

The two-way integration has many benefits as the systems talk to each other and sync automatically.  For example, when new employees are added in Inova, the integration detects the new employee and automatically adds them and their demographic details into HIA. Similarly, information also flows from HIA to Inova, such as when an employee enters hours in HIA, a new pay statement is created in Inova which includes overtime hours, job costing, and is populated on the pay statement. The advanced integration also saves time and reduces manual labor by automatically creating payroll journal transactions based on customizable parameters.

Chip Fritsch, COO at Hotel Investor Apps notes, “With the Inova API data integration into HIA business intelligence, the benefits extend beyond accounting and HR to operations and management. In this tight market, it meets the needs for managers who want alerts mid-pay period if overtime hours are tracking high, and enables management companies to benchmark wages per occupied room across the portfolio.”
