ChartWorld offer CIO+ information overlay service for free

ChartWorld is offering its CIO+ Information Overlay Service free of charge to all vessels until the current crew exchange process has been resolved.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Due to COVID-19, the shipping industry has faced the issue of limited or restricted crew changes. ChartWorld Information Overlay, known as CIO+, is a data overlay shown in ECDIS as a user chart, loaded on top of Electronic Navigational Charts. CIO+ is designed to help the bridge team with the task of voyage planning and execution. CIO+ automates the process of applying additional data in ECDIS by means of user chart objects. It is also a user chart overlay presenting T&P notices and NAVAREA warnings as actual objects with danger attributes on top of your ENC.

Stress and fatigue can impact day-to-day job performance. However, on a vessel the implication of mistakes and oversights can have devastating consequences. CIO+ automates what can be a tedious process, and will save time and relieve the crew. 

Oliver Schwarz, founder of ChartWorld, commented: “Everyone in the industry wants the crew change situation resolved but, unfortunately, this is in other people’s hands. Each of us, however, can try to make a difference where we can. This is what we do, and this is where we can make a direct difference to crew.”

CIO+ is available for ChartWorld eGlobeG2, Furuno FMD, JRC 9201 and Wartsila ECDIS NS4000. {/mprestriction}
