Hapag-Lloyd Cruises Selects Resco SMS for New Vessel

London/Sydney, November 2012

Rescompany is very pleased to announce it has been awarded the contract to install Resco SMS onboard Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ new ship the EUROPA 2. Paul Goldbeck, Director IT/QM on this decision; “After thorough review we selected Resco SMS due to its superior technological approach. With the open platform for hardware and the one database for POS and PMS we were able to choose solutions which fit best for us, resulting in, amongst other things, a lower cost of ownership. An additional factor leading to this decision was the knowledge, implementation skills and support levels from the Resco team”.

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises is today one of Germany’s foremost providers of luxury and expedition cruises. The company offers four ships with their own unique character, hundreds of destinations, on-board and on land programs, attractive travel combinations, short trips to get a feel for what’s offered and long passages for travel enthusiasts. The EUROPA, the flagship of the fleet, is considered by many to be the world’s finest yacht. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises will strategically expand its product offering with the addition of a new ship: The EUROPA 2 will take to the high seas in May 2013. It will be positioned as the modern, lifestyle-oriented sister ship of MS EUROPA and will cater to a sophisticated, international, and cosmopolitan target group.
