La Quinta Hotels Upgrade Business Intelligence System

In an effort to automate data gathering and operational performance management, LQ Management L.L.C., operator or La Quinta Inns and Suites, announces the integration of Aptech Computer System, Inc.'s Execuvue Business Intelligence in more than 600 hotels. LQ Management L.L.C. utilizes Execuvue in its corporate offices for same-day management reporting to track business performance for better-informed management decisions.

Vivek Shaiva, Chief Information Officer for LQ Management, L.L.C., says, "Execuvue enables LQ to provide its officers and corporate management team with daily operating reports to track key business performance indicators. The system is a critical part of LQ's management information system that provides support for tactical and strategic decisions." Shaiva says that his team worked with Aptech to develop custom flash reports that show the company's overall performance and enables executives to drill down into data to evaluate individual property contribution.

LQ Management collects operating data from all its properties during the night audit process, and then consolidates the individual hotel information into a central database that exports it to Execuvue for management reporting and analysis. "Our CEO and other officers have custom Execuvue operating reports on their desk by 8 a.m.," says Shaiva.

Jill Wilder, Vice President for Aptech, says, "LQ Management's team worked closely with Aptech's developers to create specialized reports that deliver property and corporate information that contributes to LQ's success. Execuvue is integrated with LQ Management's corporate and property-based systems to deliver the maximum amount of data without manual rekeying; it is a very efficient process." Execuvue provides customized executive graphic performance displays that include YTD and same-day last year comparisons by market, brand and further criteria for RevPAR, ADR, occupancy and other measures.

Execuvue is a web based hospitality Business Intelligence software application for large and small hotel companies that coordinates data from a wide variety of corporate systems, including Smith Travel Research, into accessible information with familiar browser simplicity. Execuvue gives hotel executives the power to make better decisions daily by providing fast and easy real-time access to key operating information and graphically displaying it.
