ORLANDO, FL—ProfitSword posted another year of growth in 2013, adding eight new management company clients/partners and one new ownership group client/partner.

The management companies include Alliance Hospitality, Inc., Destination Hotels & Resorts, Hospitality Ventures Management Group, John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts, M&R Hotel Management, NewcrestImage Hotels, North Central Group and Prism Hotels & Resorts. The Ownership Group is Ashford Hospitality Trust, Inc. Together, these companies represent 366 hotels.

“Owners, management companies and on-property operators need immediate access to their data,” stated Tili Findley, co-owner of ProfitSword. “In order to make essential decisions, there is a need for both high-level summary data, as well as the lowest level of detail. ProfitSword’s solutions make this possible. After all, we have a long, proven track record of success implementing and maintaining B.I. solutions in the hospitality industry. Our innovations, continuous improvements and amazing team fuel our growth.”

ProfitSword provides five different software solutions for hospitality, depending on the needs of the organization/portfolio. Three of the applications—ProfitSage, ProfitPlan, and ProfitPace —were developed originally as tools for hotel-level managers; however, each of these solutions contain roll-up reporting features for the corporate office/above property management team and owners. The fourth application, called ProfitWizard, is an ad-hoc reporting and analysis solution using Microsoft Analysis Services and cube technology, which allows analysts to create their own dashboards and reports. The fifth and newest application, called ProfitOwner, has features that consolidate both summary and detail data from multiple management companies for ownership/asset management reporting needs. ProfitOwner also includes ProfitWizard for ad-hoc analysis and reporting.
