River Advice runs three more ships with Resco SMS


Salzburg/Sydney, February 2009

After already operating eight ships with the fully integrated shipboard property management system RESCO SMS, River Advice is now installing the system onboard three more river going vessels: AVALON AFFINITY, AVALON CREATIVITY and RIVER NAVIGATOR. Robert Heijlands, Managing Director of River Advice, about this decision: “With RESCO SMS we have found an extremely user friendly application that allows us to train the key shipboard positions in a consolidated environment. Every year we only need a few days in the beginning of the season for training which saves us time and money.”

The setting up of the three new river ships brings the installation base for RESCO SMS to ten river ships this year alone. “This fact shows us that our shipboard property management system is very suitable for river cruise operators”, comments Thomas Pfitzer, Managing Director of Rescompany Systems. “We believe what we have found with RSESCO SMS is an excellent cost/performance ratio for the river cruise market. By April this year a total of 26 river ships will run RESCO SMS.”
