Thomson Cruises Selects Resco SMS for New Vessel

London/Sydney, February 2010

Rescompany is very pleased to announce it has been awarded the contract to install Resco SMS onboard Thomson Cruises new ship Thomson Dream. A spokesperson for Thomson Cruises stated “After thorough evaluations we selected RESCO SMS due to its superior technological approach. Because of the open platform for hardware and only one database for POS and PMS we were able to choose what fits best for us, resulting in, amongst other things, a lower cost of ownership. An additional factor leading to this decision was the knowledgeable and committed RESCO team with many years of implementation experience. This will help in every phase of the roll out process and it’s very tight timeline.”

Thomson Cruises has 4 ships, including the new Thomson Dream, with itineraries around the Caribbean, Morocco, Canary Islands, Mediterranean and the Red Sea. They were a previous customer of IisiI Cruise Software, the original company behind the now Resco SMS and have been using the software onboard Thomson Celebration for many years. Thomson added “We are aware how well the system works and how simple it is for our users but the software now has the Rescompany company structure behind it with its people and support setup, making it a really complete package”. Rescompany Managing Director, Peter Winqvist, comments “We are very pleased to have Thomson Cruises as one of our clients. This again shows the strength of our onboard system and suitability also for larger vessels. It is also an important contract with the recent launch of our London office”.
