ChartBrowser is a free of charge onboard solution supporting all official ENC formats from UKHO, Primar and IC-ENC, as well as the ACES (S)ENC format for eGlobe, S-ECDIS and Imtech ECDIS.
ChartWorld says that it can be used to make sure that the ENC inventory on an ECDIS-fitted vessel is up to date, as per regulatory requirements.
Since it can be used in combination with every ECDIS model in the market, it can prove particularly useful for shipping companies with several ECDIS makers in the fleet, says the supplier.
“Everybody is talking about paperless navigation but if it takes more time to order charts and manually install update CDs than correcting paper charts there is something wrong in your ENC work process,” says Stephan Dimke, sales director of ChartWorld.
“With ChartBrowser we optimise ENC ordering and automate the updating process.”
The open software architecture of ChartBrowser allows for integration into existing shipping company ERP systems. ChartWorld adds that shipping companies can review and accept every order from their vessels in real time.
