In the 21st Century, data has become the new currency in business.  Earnings are merely the by-product of using your data and information in order to maximize your profit.  Companies that take advantage of business intelligence tools can far exceed the profitability and growth of those companies that do not.Those companies using the ProfitSword platform, for example, can more efficiently and expediently manage their data collection and analyzation to improve performance.

The ProfitSword suite of applications integrates data from disparate systems within the operating environment of a hotel portfolio, including:
  • Accounting/GL systems
  • Property Management systems (PMS)
  • Point of Sale systems (POS)
  • Labor Management/Time & Attendance systems
  • Sales/CRM solutions
  • Spa
  • Golf
  • Retail
  • Parking
  • And more…

ProfitSword can also integrate data from market comparison vendors like Smith Travel (STR Reports) as well as data from E-Procurement systems.  ProfitSword’s applications then use the data from these systems for reporting, data visualization (dash boards), forecasting/budgeting, automating the income journal, revenue pace reporting, sales productivity reporting, business planning and much more.
