What exactly means „good quality“ when it’s about hotel data?

What exactly means „good quality“ when it’s about hotel data?
Actually it’s not only a single factor, but a number of features that separate quality data from worthless addresses.
One of them is market coverage: Having just 50 hotel addresses while the true number within your target group is 100 lets you miss 50% of your market.
Accuracy is another quality- and success-building factor: Once 10 out of 50 phone numbers are outdated, 20% of the hotels are out of your reach. It quickly gets worse once your controlling finds one third or more addresses refer to properties that don’t even exist anymore, which unfortunately is not the exception to the rule.
More than decisive for data quality and your success: The presence of additional information. Your target group can’t be found in the yellow pages, as they only provide address, phone and fax. It needs many more relevant information to identify your potential customers, like number of rooms, star rating, restaurant information, details about meeting and wellness facilities, etc.
If your address provider doesn’t have all this data available, your campaign will simply not reach the target and mostly produce remarkable losses: It doesn’t make any sense to offer cleaning products for swimming pools to hotels that don’t even have a pool! Only when all these detailed information has been added to the address data, your campaign will meet the needs of the market, attract new customers and increase your sales.
