FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(GAINESVILLE, GA – 06/13/12) As the hospitality industry continues to steadily improve following the economic doldrums of the last several years, one industry service provider has seen exceptional growth in all product lines of its offerings in secure, cloud-based hotel accounting and analytics tools. M3 Hotel Accounting of Gainesville, Georgia currently provides solutions to over 3,000 properties, processing over $8 billion in financial transactions annually.

Over the past 12 months, M3 has seen adoption of their product lines increase exponentially in the United States, and has recently expanded service offerings to clients in Canada. AccKnowledge, the company’s flagship accounting platform, has seen a customer base increase of 15%, while M3 Link, a highly-sophisticated operations reporting, business intelligence and analytics solution, has grown by 17%. The largest area of growth, however, has been seen in the area of Document Imaging services, where the customer base has increased by an astounding 127%, as hoteliers adopt a new standard of keeping A/P in the digital realm, eliminating the need for costly printing, postage and document storage fees

One early adopter of M3’s AccKnowledge and Document Imaging solution has been the Oldham Goodwin Group, LLC, based in Bryan, Texas. Oldham Goodwin (www.oldhamgoodwin.com) specializes in the development and management of premium-branded hotels in destination locations, and is continually seeking ways to streamline their business. In a company that relies heavily on general managers and assistant general managers for the accounting processes, Document Imaging has proven to be a valuable tool.

“If a member of our team needs to see an invoice in detail, they can find the document easily online,” explained Anthony Scalero, Controller for Oldham Goodwin. “In addition, Document Imaging allows our vendors’ checks to go out more efficiently; our on-site staff can look at AccKnowledge and see the real-time status of the A/P process. We have revamped our entire process, and it works very well for us.”

M3 Hotel Accounting has nearly 450 customers, representing over 3,000 properties, including industry leaders like Apple REIT, Hotel Equities, McKibbon Hotel Management and The Procaccianti Group. M3 offers the highest performing back office automation solution in the hospitality industry for all sizes of ownership and management groups, without the need for expensive servers, extensive training or IT staff to setup or maintain. M3 has certification by all leading industry associations, and is the only hotel accounting and analytics software provider that is SAS and SSAE-16 certified.
