Orion Expedition Cruises adds Resco SMS on Orion II

London/Sydney, June 2011

Orion Expedition Cruises has decided to implement the Resco ship management system Resco SMS on its new vessel, Orion II. The Resco systems are already running on their other state-of-the-art expedition ship, Orion.

With the new vessel Orion Expedition Cruises is able to provide exclusive expeditions from Antarctica to Asia, and the Kimberley to Micronesia and New Zealand, with the two ships offering a balance of onboard service and luxury combined with unique personal experiences in environmentally and culturally sensitive parts of the region. Together, Orion and Orion II are two of the most comfortable and capable expedition cruise ships cruising in Australasia.

Orion II’s inaugural voyage will be followed by expeditions to the Russian Far East, Inland Sea of Japan, the Ryukyu Islands and then a series of varying 10 night itineraries around Borneo. Later voyages in 2011 include Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Further information on all Orion Expedition Cruises during 2011 and 2012 can be obtained by visiting the website www.orionexpeditions.com

The Resco Ship Management System comes with an integrated point of sale and offers optional modules such as gangway security, excursion sales, cashbook, AVO (cabin maintenance tracking), inventory management, crew management and payroll. The inventory management system is linked to the POS to allow for accurate inventory/usage control along with a state of the art order forecasting tool. Resco POS utilizes industry standard touch screen technology and provides a true open platform where the preferred hardware can be chosen by the user.
