GNS partners with SEALL on touchscreen ECDIS

GNS has announced a strategic partnership with SEALL ECDIS Limited, which will see the companies work together in the development of a touchscreen ECDIS system that can integrate with GNS’ back of bridge software.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The launch of the touch capable SEALL ECDIS will include an entirely new user interface in comparison with SEALL’s previous systems, using a multi-touch technology display and updated software.

“We are very pleased to announce this strategic partnership with SEALL which enables us to combine GNS’s expertise in maritime solutions with SEALL’s vision for next-generation ECDIS. Together, we believe we can achieve exciting new digitally-led efficiencies and safety improvements on board,” said Paul Stanley, chief executive of the GNS Group.

“Navigators face multiple challenges around the user experience with ECDIS and back of bridge integration. By working to innovate around interface design GNS and SEALL can help shipping companies achieve the efficiencies and improvements promised by digital navigation.”

The touchscreen ECDIS will share the same underlying technology as GNS’s Voyager back of bridge software when it comes to handling digital chart data, to streamline the flow of data between the systems and reduce duplication and rekeying of information.

The ECDIS features a 24-inch display, and a full QWERTY soft keyboard in addition to touch operation. The unit is type approved by DNV GL.{/mprestriction}
