ChartCo Ltd has formed a partnership with regs4ships Ltd to distribute regulations and other ancillary information to be distributed under the brand of RegsManager. With this partnership, the method of distribution will gradually move from CDROM to the on-line solutions of ChartCo broadcast and ChartCo Select.
All the RegsManager data will be held by the ship in a fast and accurate database allowing extensive keyword searching. The service includes regulations, acts, codes of practice, and notices, all designed to provide the relevant documentation to meet the 1998 carriage of nautical publications regulations. Links are provided to the relevant sections of MARPOL, SOLAS and STCW, with regular updates direct from ChartCo.
This service complements ChartCo's existing products commented ChartCo Manager Steve Mariner,
...and will provide a valuable aid to vessels that wish to dispense with the traditional time-consuming paper products. On-line distribution and updating will provide the mariner with the most accurate and up-to-date information at all times.
Partnering with ChartCo will enable regs4ships to enhance and develop new services using ChartCo's vast experience in software development and data management and delivery. commented Richard Eastham, Technical Director.
We are looking forward to assisting ChartCo in providing a comprehensive suite of electronic data for all vessels at sea.
ChartCo has over 3300 vessels benefiting from the provision of paper and electronic chart updates, weather data, newspapers and updates to British Admiralty electronic products.
regs4ships is an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 company.
As a result of this partnership ChartCo will become the sole distributor for regs4ships data.
