What is the “best” accounting platform on the market? Award-winning luxury boutique hotel ‘The Ivy’ reveals its pick

Hotels don’t have to be big to have the best technology. Such is the case for The Ivy Hotel, a world-class historic mansion in Baltimore. Ranked #6 in the United States by TripAdvisor among its “Top 25 Luxury Hotels” and named a Travel + Leisure “Best Hotel on the Planet,” this boutique wedding and meeting destination has just 17 rooms, plus a small luxury spa and acclaimed culinary concept, Magdalena, A Maryland Bistro, which has won Wine Spectator’s Excellence Award and the open table Diner’s Choice Award. Behind all the accolades at the heart of the hotel is Aptech, the industry standard for hospitality financial management.

Accounting manager Kenny Cassara said 2021 was the best year yet for The Ivy Hotel due to the proliferation of “staycations” caused by the pandemic. As business continues to boom, Cassara said Aptech’s enterprise accounting solution, PVNG, helps him keep financial processes running smoothly because he can now access real-time operational data.

“Throughout my hospitality career, I have worked with a number of accounting systems. PVNG is by far the ‘best’ accounting software on the market,” Cassara said. “It’s simple. It’s slick. and shared in minutes. PVNG is unlike any software I’ve ever experienced. You can’t get lost in Aptech; I can manage P&Ls, accounts payable, and process invoices while I sleep.”

The Ivy Hotel and Magdalena Restaurant is a Baltimore gem. Owners Eddie and Sylvia Brown are committed to a deeply personalized approach to hospitality, fueled by a desire to exceed guest expectations. The Ivy Hotel has eight spacious suites and nine guest rooms, each with a gas fireplace and a sumptuous bathroom with heated limestone floors. Magdalena Restaurant offers bistro fare inspired by the classic dishes of France, the comfort of England, and the expansive spirit of Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay region. The Ivy is ideal for weddings or events, backed by state-of-the-art technology. After a day of meetings, guests can take advantage of the Ivy’s full-service spa or unwind with an in-room massage.

“When a hotel like The Ivy – rated the #1 hotel in Baltimore and awarded 4 stars by Forbes Travel Guide in 2021 – calls your accounting solution the ‘best’ in the industry, that says a lot,” said Sam Costa, Aptech Director of Customer Service and Support. “Almost every day I hear from people like Kenny that PVNG is effortless. They love the user-friendliness of the system, accessible from anywhere because it’s cloud-based. I’m glad The Ivy Hotel is remained a happy customer of Aptech over the years and have the finance team so happy to operate on PVNG This is a one of a kind property known for having the best tea service, amazing food, lavish luxury and a fun neighborhood. We’re proud to add ‘Best Accounting Platform’ to their impressive list of accolades.”
