ROBINSON is the German market leader, both in terms of scope and quality, within the club holiday premium segment. The company's portfolio currently comprises 23 club resorts and one town house in eleven countries. As Bernd Schindler, head of Information Technology at ROBINSON remarked: "Address data that has been properly captured is extremely important, not only for helping us communicate successfully with our guests but also for subsequent customer retention." ROBINSON welcomes guests from a range of countries around the world and uses protel MPE, protel hotelsoftware GmbH's multi-property hotel management system, to record their addresses – often from multiple sources. The club operator was therefore on the lookout for an address validation program that could be integrated into their existing system and could also correct international addresses.
ROBINSON has been validating its guests' addresses directly in the protel hotel software system since 2010. This functions via an interface with the AddressDoctor web services. When club employees capture data, new addresses are automatically validated, corrected or completed by AddressDoctor. AddressDoctor can verify addresses in 240+ countries and territories, such as Italy, Morocco and Spain. This means that the ROBINSON clubs have valid and complete addresses right from the start. "Address validation is essential for ensuring smooth communication between our clubs and their guests, both when making reservations and identifying new arrivals. AddressDoctor meets our requirements in every respect", said Bernd Schindler.
