Jeppesen latest to enter PAYS market

Jeppesen has announced that it is set to release its new OpenENC service, the company’s take on Pay As You Sail (PAYS) licensing for electronic navigational charts.

Jeppesen OpenENC PAYS provides free worldwide coverage of ENC charts on the ECDIS for route planning purposes. When a ship sails, a tracking service or device reports the ship’s continual position and the customer is then invoiced for the charts along the route in the two best scales available.

The company says that this might prove particularly useful for vessels that do not regularly sail on any fixed route, because the vessel always has all charts available and can plan and sail a new route at a moment’s notice.

The new service will add to Jeppesen’s Dynamic Licensing and Direct Licensing options for chart licensing.

These different licensing methods distribute ENCs using Jeppesen’s SENC format approved by DNV (Det Norske Veritas), which requires no verification or compilation of data onboard.

“While PAYS options may seem like the simplest option for buying ENCs, this may not be the case in many situations,” said Paul Elgar, Jeppesen OEM strategic business manager.

“By providing a choice of flexible ENC licensing services, we can help customers find their own best and most affordable solutions. Seamlessly combining different licensing options is also a help in areas where hydrographic offices do not accept PAYS.”
