Hotel Accounting as a Service


The world of hospitality management can be complex with so many responsibilities and imperatives; from managing employees to administering various hotel services such as accommodation, catering, event planning or spa management.  The vast majority of hotel owners and hotel management companies choose to outsource non-core services such as housekeeping, food and beverage or laundry preferring to focus on the core business function of customer care and occupancy levels and room rates driving profit conversion.

Are you able to extract necessary financials when you need them?

If your finance department is still using spreadsheets and you find it difficult to extract required information when you need it, you might want to consider doing what our clients have successfully done, outsourcing your hotel finance function. French Duncan hotel accounting team have developed powerful hotel finance analytics tools that allow you to view your financial performance accurately and in real time.

The software, utilised by our outsource team, was developed using the most advanced technology to offer a fully automated finance service. It is a powerful, intuitive and visual tool that can be tailored to the specific needs of any hotel. The financial information is presented in the form of dashboards, graphs, and document imaging making it easy to understand and interpret.

The dashboards enable your team to compare daily financials and quickly identify issues affecting performance. That allows you to apply various strategies to improve performance before the end of the month rather than after, when it’s too late. You can use FD Reporting software across your entire business portfolio and compare the financial performance of each unit, benchmarking performance against your own units and also against competitive sets.

The FD Reporting platform integrates with the majority of Property Management Systems used in the hotel industry, bringing the benefits of automation.

Future Driven Hotel Accounting Approach

Research shows that continuous digital transformation will disrupt more businesses than expected and may leave a number of them behind. In order to remain competitive it is vital to keep up with the constantly developing technological innovations.

The so called digital revolution, constant technological changes and vast progress in financial reporting provide hotel owners and operators with the tools to transform back-office processing with more focus on the accuracy and consistency of information requirements.
