Rescompany announces it has reached an agreement with Semester at Sea for the implementation of Resco SMS, the suppliers’ PMS and POS system on Semester at Sea’s newest shipboard campus, World Odyssey.

Plans are in place to add Resco CRS/CRM during next year to take advantage of the complete package Resco has to offer.’

World Odyssey is the sixth ship in Semester at Sea’s 51-year history. The new ship, like its predecessors, will serve as a traveling home and campus that carries approximately 600 undergraduate students every semester.

A wide variety of coursework from 20-25 disciplines is integrated with relevant field studies in up to a dozen countries, allowing for a comparative study abroad experience that is global.

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, eMustering and mobile applications. Resco POS utilizes industry standard touch screen technology and provides an open platform where the preferred hardware can be chosen by the user.

The Resco PMS is currently installed on more than 120 vessels of all sizes.
