Clarenco Amazing Retreats is a new collection of unusual and unique luxury venues and hotels throughout the UK. Venues across Scotland, England and Wales include magnificent castles, three historic sea forts, fairytale chateaux and a converted monastery. The lovingly restored properties in spectacular locations provide amazing venues for weddings, film locations, corporate hospitality or amazing celebrations.

Having evaluated the major PMS solutions in the marketplace, Clarenco chose Xn Hotel Systems to implement protel Multi Property Edition (MPE) across six properties. “We needed a solution that was capable of managing our business both at the properties and centrally”, stated Greg Ward, Sales & Operations Director. “Of crucial importance is the event management capability within protel, as well as the integrated CRM functionality provided, which avoids the need to interface to a third party system or to maintain separate databases. We were also keen to outsource the hosting of the chosen solution to the vendor.”

The system will go live in the first property in July 2012, with the rollout to the remaining five properties to be completed by the end of the summer.

As a central property management system, the protel Multi Property Edition (MPE) transforms even a global hotel chain into a single unit. All connected hotels access the same guest information from a central database. Data and functions are available in real time at every property. protel MPE offers reservation, marketing and reporting in one package making it easy to monitor and control all activities, revenues and reports across the entire organization.
