Rescompany Systems announced the opening of a new U.S. office in Fort Lauderdale, FL, which will be lead by Andrea Corman as Regional Operations Manager, North America.

Corman will leverage her extensive background in the travel and cruise industry to support and grow Resco's presence in North America; she will also act as a liaison between clients and Resco's global development team in refining and expanding the company's suite of software solutions, said a statement.

Prior to joining Resco, Andrea was Guest Services Director with Voyages to Antiquity of Oxford, UK, with operational offices in Ft. Lauderdale FL. She has held senior Product Development and Customer relationship roles with both large and entrepreneurial travel and cruise organizations such as Oceania Cruises, Uniworld River Cruises, Vantage Deluxe World Travel, and Orient lines.

"I first came across Resco during the start-up for Voyages to Antiquity in 2009 when we were evaluating reservations and ship systems technology that could accommodate the myriad sales and marketing practices of a global cruise company," said Corman. "We were impressed with the breadth of their solution and the responsiveness and expertise of their global support staff. The Resco systems have always been very solid and feature rich. The new Resco modules and software upgrades across the product line are very exciting, delivering outstanding, real-world solutions that address the ever changing needs of cruise and travel companies. I'm delighted to be joining the Resco team and look forward to building relationships with existing and new clients."

"Andrea's broad and deep industry experience combined with her focus on customer relations and the user experience make her the ideal person to head up our new U.S. office," said Peter Winqvist, Resco's Managing Director. "While a U.S. base of operations has been in our plans for some time now, the increased demand across the region made the timing optimal. With Andrea at the helm, we're able to extend our industry-leading support to existing and new American customers, while keeping close tabs on their changing needs and tailoring our solutions accordingly."
