The Schulte Group has acquired Rescompany Systems (Resco), a provider of hospitality software solutions to the cruise industry.
With its integrated ship-to-shore software systems, Resco is a perfect match and ideal addition to the services offered by Schulte Group subsidiary and digital technology company MariApps Marine Solutions (MariApps), Schulte said.
Together, the two companies will be able to offer a comprehensive range of maritime solutions and shipboard and office-based management systems on CLOUD and data analytics to the growing cruise sector.
“Despite the many challenges the cruise industry has been facing due to COVID-19, we see more than ever a growing demand for web-based software solutions. With Resco as a strong and reputable player in the market, we look forward to providing cruise ship operators with customized technology that ensures safe and efficient operations and an enhanced passenger experience,” said Sankar Ragavan, MariApps CEO.
Resco designs ship-to-shore software solutions and web applications for the cruise industry, giving cruise operators a 360 deg view of on board operations and customer interaction.
The company’s integrated Customer Relation Management (CRM) and Central Reservation Systems (CRS) cover all aspects of operations, from customer enquiries to complex bookings, payments and sales invoices, to customer campaigns.
Resco’s Property Management Systems (PMS) and Point of Sale Systems (POS) enable efficient check-ins and smooth passenger processing on board cruise vessels of all sizes, the company explained.
“Serving the cruise market for nearly 20 years with our innovative ship to shore software solutions, we are very excited to now welcome the Schulte Group as our new owner. With MariApps as a strong and committed partner, Resco is determined to grow more vigorously with new and improved technologies,” added Resco CEO, Peter Winqvist.
Under the new ownership, Winqvist will report to Ragavan.
