IBS Software Acquires APS for $90 Million as It Targets Major Growth in Hospitality Sector

Jan 17, 2024

IBS Software, an SaaS solutions provider to the travel industry globally, has reached an agreement to acquire the ground-breaking hotel and travel technology provider Above Property Services (APS®) . The $90 million transaction will further solidify IBS Software’s position in the hospitality market and accelerate the growth of its brand to underpin an ambitious expansion of its reach in the hospitality industry. The strategic acquisition will enable IBS Software to provide the only unified platform in the hospitality industry for seamlessly managing the entire customer journey from booking to fulfillment for the global hotel chain, resort, and gaming markets. The move will significantly expand the company’s offering with the addition of cutting-edge CRS (Central Reservation System), PMS (Property Management System) and RMS (Revenue Management System) solutions. With this acquisition IBS Software adds Call Center and Demand-side (stored and third-party inventory) solutions to its already established booking engine and distribution platform used by over 36,000 hotels worldwide , including many of the world’s largest and best-known hotels and resorts. APS was founded in 2012 by Aaron Shepherd, an industry pioneer who developed a number of the world’s leading hospitality PMS and CRS solutions. The company was established to completely reinvent hotel software from the ground up, offering a revolutionary   cutting-edge unified platform optimized for   the hotel enterprise sector. A typical hotel organization requires multiple core software platforms to capture bookings, requiring multiple vendors and integrations. Each system needs unique logins, user interfaces, training requirements, upgrade paths, pricing and contract terms, breeding inefficiency – especially considering 80% of the data in each application is redundant and has to be replicated or synchronized. Over the last decade, APS’s platform has created a new standard for speed, flexibility and stability for travel and hospitality CRS, PMS and RMS – empowering businesses to transform how they connect with guests and drive revenues, while significantly streamlining operations. Aaron Shepherd, Founder and CEO of APS, added: "IBS Software and APS both recognize the crucial need to accelerate next-level transformation in travel and hospitality to create unparalleled value for its clients. It is this shared vision that has inspired our collaboration. APS has successfully developed the only unified cloud-native microservices platform that frees operators from the limitations of legacy, monolithic technologies, providing flexibility, speed, and the ability to scale infinitely. Today's news gives APS customers the stability and resources of a large, multi-national travel leader and will give IBS Software clients and partners access to the most modern and comprehensive modular solution in the industry, ushering in a new era of growth and propelling them to new heights. We look forward to seeing IBS Software further evolve as an industry leader with the acquisition of APS." Peter Krebs, Head of Travel & Hospitality Solutions at IBS Software, commented: “There is an unmet need in the hospitality industry to simplify how rooms and other services are sold. Too many businesses are being held back by legacy technology that prevents them from living up to their potential. It’s vital they have the tools they need to be effective in a rapidly changing marketplace. We were blown away by the capabilities of the ground-breaking APS platform and the value it delivers to travel businesses, providing them with the power to simplify their tech stack to instantly create new services and offers. We are very excited to bring Aaron Shepherd and his entire team onboard, and with this IBS Software and APS will be uniquely placed to offer the only unified platform for the global hospitality chain and enterprise market. We couldn’t be more excited about what we can achieve together.” V K Mathews, Founder and Executive Chairman of IBS Software, said: “APS is a true disruptor in the travel tech industry. Led by Aaron Shepherd, a visionary in the sector, the team has executed flawlessly on its vision to streamline complex processes in the hospitality businesses to deliver integrated, end-to-end services that differentiate and improve the customer experience. This acquisition will significantly enhance IBS Software’s offerings   in hospitality, expanding our market reach and win market share in multiple segments, including medium to large hotel chains as well as luxury, resort and gaming customers.” According to a recent h2c Global Hospitality Distribution Study , the CRS is the leading distribution system for 89% of large hotel chains and 60% of medium-sized hotel chains, with 20% of hotel organizations planning to replace their CRS within three years. Through this transaction, IBS Software will substantially extend its total addressable market and capitalize on the growing demand. Steffan Berelowitz, Head of the Hospitality Business at IBS Software, will lead the development and expansion of  the hospitality business, working closely with Aaron Shepherd. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions. 1/15/2024 NRF 2024 NEWS: WorkJam Launches New Products to Empower Frontline Employees and Managers WorkJam, a digital frontline workplace, announced at NRF: Retail’s Big Show in New York City the launch of three new products: Site Coach, a digital dashboard for frontline employees; Analytics Insights Reports, which builds on WorkJam’s core reporting capabilities; and Extensive Audit Capabilities that supercharge task management. All three new products are embedded into WorkJam’s core technology, making the WorkJam super app more robust and cementing the company’s leadership in frontline workplace technology. “With these three new product launches, we’re enhancing our offering for our enterprise customers and embedding all the solutions they need into our single super app,” said Steven Kramer, CEO of WorkJam. “These new products will help businesses prepare for the increasingly complex compliance landscape they’ll face this year and tap real-time analytics insights that help them operate more effectively and empower their teams. By taking a multi-pronged approach to enhancing visibility, reporting and analytics and clearly delineating task and audit functions, WorkJam is helping businesses scale operationally in ways legacy and other point solutions simply cannot.” Site Coach is a new module of WorkJam’s super app that offers a kiosk experience for location-level information, tasks and scheduling to drive operational excellence and better customer experiences. Frontline staff working in a particular location can use the module’s dashboard to view task lists, resources and schedules, clock in and out, and more. Site Coach can operate as a stand-alone module or in tandem with other modules in WorkJam’s app, allowing employees to view information on the Site Coach dashboard and then execute tasks via the mobile app or shared devices at their work location. Analytics Insights Reports builds on WorkJam’s core reporting capabilities, offering more robust, real-time analytics and operational insights that empower administrators and frontline managers with the data visualizations they need to better understand their workflows and how the business, as well as their location and team, are performing relative to defined business goals. The product enables users to make more informed decisions about how they leverage their store associates or distribution center staffs to optimize operations and achieve better results. The new product marks the next step in the evolution of WorkJam’s AI-powered analytics capabilities and builds on the partnership WorkJam launched with Qualtrics last year. That partnership provides the two companies’ joint customers with AI-driven insights into frontline sentiment and empowers store and logistics site managers to boost frontline engagement, productivity and retention. WorkJam’s Extensive Audit Capabilities provide enhanced intelligent auditing power to help enterprises maintain safe, efficient workplaces and compliant operations for optimized customer experiences. The new product supports operational efficiencies that allow time-strapped district and field managers to focus on performance and results. This new release offers significant administrative capabilities that allow task gatekeepers to author, configure and publish complex and optimized audits to the field with ease. The audit results and configurable scoring also trigger any needed follow-up steps and workflows. By enhancing its audit capabilities, WorkJam is helping companies strengthen their businesses so they are prepared to operate effectively in an increasingly complex compliance environment. As the leading digital frontline workplace, WorkJam enables large enterprises to orchestrate their frontline workforces to improve productivity, engagement and retention. The solution is the only one on the market that offers modules that enable frontliners to manage their schedules and tasks, access training and career development opportunities, and communicate with peers and leaders throughout their organization in a single super app. It’s also the only solution that gives enterprises the flexibility to buy one module and then turn on others as their needs grow. In 2023, WorkJam was named to the TIME100 Most Influential Companies list, which highlights companies making an extraordinary impact around the world. 1/15/2024 Cvent Acquires Jifflenow and iCapture to Expand its Trade Show and Conference Offerings Cvent , an industry-leading meetings, events, and hospitality technology provider, announced that it has acquired Jifflenow , a B2B meeting scheduling platform and iCapture , a lead capture solution. As in-person events have returned as a critical channel for driving growth, hundreds of global organizations rely on Jifflenow to schedule and manage high-quality B2B meetings and iCapture for their trade show and conference lead capture needs. With these acquisitions, Cvent further expands its Event Marketing and Management platform, offering enhanced solutions to help organizations: Maximize trade show impact by facilitating meetings with the highest-value customers and prospects: Trade shows are a large and growing category of marketing program spend, offering unique opportunities for sales and marketing teams to reach and engage new audiences and connect with their prospects and customers face-to-face. However, organizing, managing and tracking onsite appointments – through multiple systems and manual processes like email, calendar holds and spreadsheets – leads to wasted time and lost opportunities. With the addition of Jifflenow’s technology, Cvent gives organizations an easy way to ensure executives and sales teams are maximizing their time on the trade show floor by meeting with the most important customers and prospects. In addition, these new capabilities not only maximize the number of important meetings that are held, but also enable previously offline conversations to be tracked and actioned after the event ends. Increase the number of event leads: Trade shows are a vital part of an organization’s awareness and lead generation strategy. By acquiring iCapture, Cvent now helps organizations get more out of every trade show with a consistent, customizable and easy-to-use universal lead capture solution. By eliminating fragmented, unreliable lead capture tools that have to be re-learned from show to show, organizations can boost lead volume with a standardized system that meets their unique lead capture needs. Better qualify and convert trade show leads: 74% of marketers(1) say events are their most important demand generation tactic, and with its highly configurable qualification questions and robust CRM integrations, iCapture facilitates more intelligent and efficient lead capture onsite. In addition, Jifflenow simplifies the process of booking qualified meetings at the event to convert these leads into business opportunities. This powerful combination streamlines post-event follow-up and enables sales and marketing professionals to easily capture, qualify and convert their leads with greater speed, consistency and visibility. “The Jifflenow team is excited to continue its mission to transform meeting automation as an integral part of Cvent, a clear leader that continues to transform the meetings and events industry,” said Hari Shetty, CEO and Founder of Jifflenow. “Last year, we unveiled an expanded partnership and integration with Cvent, and today’s announcement is an exciting evolution of our relationship. It takes a highly committed team to reach the level of success that we have achieved, and we’re excited to leverage Cvent’s global scale, research and development resources and robust partner ecosystem to continue to innovate to help organizations capitalize on their trade shows and conferences.” “Trade shows and conferences offer some of the highest quality engagements sales teams will encounter, and iCapture was founded nearly 12 years ago with a single goal in mind: helping organizations capture those engagements and turn them into revenue-generating opportunities,” said Brady Roberts, President and Co-Founder of iCapture. “With organizations investing more in trade shows to reconnect with customers and prospects, now’s a great time to join the Cvent team and add our best-in-class solutions to their platform.” “Over the past nearly 25 years, we’ve helped power global meetings and events programs, and these acquisitions highlight our continued commitment to innovation and delivering the best-in-class solutions our customers need to drive their businesses forward,” said Reggie Aggarwal, CEO and Founder of Cvent. “We’ve known and respected Hari and Brady since the inception of both Jifflenow and iCapture, and we are extremely excited to welcome their teams to Cvent.” Cvent’s enhanced trade show and conference solutions will be featured prominently at the Company’s user and industry conference, Cvent CONNECT 2024 , to be held June 10-13 in San Antonio, Texas. 1/16/2024 BluHost Taking Hospitality Financial Management Seriously with New Accounting System Upgrade BluHost is entering 2024 with a new enterprise accounting solution backing its portfolio of select service and ultra-luxury hotels and a mix of fine dining to casual restaurants. José M. Suárez, president and CEO of the Puerto Rico based hospitality management company, selected PVNG by Aptech because of past positive experiences with the company. “When BluHost was founded, it began looking for a unified financial system that could be leveraged across our many hotels and restaurants,” said Lissette Rivera, BluHost director of finance. “Mr. Suárez has always been a big fan of Aptech. As a relatively new and growing management company supporting multiple business owners, we constantly need instant access to reports without having to purchase a lot of user licenses and the ability to quickly copy and share information between properties. The cloud based PVNG system is easy to use, economical, and gives remote access to whomever needs it. Time is money, and as far as BluHost is concerned, this is the perfect accounting system for our developing hospitality environment.” PVNG features the Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, General Ledger, Statistics, Financials, and Bank Reconciliation that today’s hotel operators are seeking with much-needed browser navigation. Its automated invoice processing, myriad of payment options, drill-down capabilities in financial statements and reports, ability to handle single or multi-property accounting, and the fact that it can be deployed as a hosted service, explains why this accounting solution is in such high demand. “Giving our staff the ability to work any time and from anywhere is a real plus,” Rivera said. “So is Aptech’s responsive 24/7 support. Even though there is a one-hour time difference between Puerto Rico and Aptech’s Pittsburgh headquarters, I am 100% confident that if I send a support email to their help desk after hours or leave a voice message, I will receive a response – and a solution to the problem – instantly. The client support team really knows their stuff. Even if an owner requests a report that doesn’t currently exist, we can still deliver on that request thanks to the support team’s immediate turnaround. Being able to give our owners what they need as soon as they ask for it is something that sets BluHost apart from other management companies. We owe that to Aptech.” Relationship Building Aptech has been a pioneer of hospitality software technology for more than 50 years. The company is focused on connecting people with computers and information to solve significant problems in the hospitality and service industries. PVNG was just named a finalist in the "2024 Hotel Tech Awards" by Hotel Tech Report in the category of "Best Finance & Hotel Accounting Software." “Like Aptech, BluHost is focused on building relationships, not only with its guests but also with owners,” said Aptech Vice President Jill Wilder. “Their success is achieved through excellence in execution, integrity, and transparency. Aptech is helping BluHost achieve these goals through excellence in financial management. As BluHost continues to grow, we plan to introduce additional Aptech solutions for business intelligence and budgeting and forecasting in hopes of taking their successes to new heights. Innovation is in our blood, and we are dedicated to keeping our customers aware of industry changes in technology. We are delighted that BluHost has joined our family of happy PVNG customers.” Aptech is an IBM software value plus partner and premier solution provider as well as a Prophix premier business partner. The company is also a proud member of Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP), Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG), the American Hotel and Lodging Assn.
