Our story begins in 1985. Timeshare resorts south of the border faced difficulty communicating with folks in the U.S. and Canada. This was long before the internet dominated our relationships and a full 20 years before Facebook.
The company formerly known as Resort Communications handled copious amounts of paper work, processing, telephone collections, and more for its clients. When the company moved from Orange County to San Diego in 1998, it had 55 employees and serviced 100,000 timeshare owners per year.
Today, ResortCom is based in Las Vegas with nearly 300 employees. Specializing in international financial and member services, we serve millions of travelers every year with more than $500 million in cash processed annually in multiple currencies.
Over the past three decades, ResortCom evolved through industry upheavals, changing product forms, and tough economic times to master all stages of the business cycle, and become a crucial part of our clients’ information flow around their customers.
To serve as your strategic partner in the complex vacation/shared ownership industry, we tailor ResortConnectTM – our innovative, sophisticated timeshare management software – to fit your business processes and seamlessly integrate into your member lifecycle, while providing 24/7/365 support.
