Transas Navi-Planner 4000 voyage planning software now boasts extended functionality to manage paper charts and publications.
Navi-Planner 4000 has been known for electronic charts, publications and other data management for several years. Recognizing the fact that a lot of shipping companies continue using paper charts, Transas has added a new functionality to its voyage planning software providing one tool for both, electronic and paper charts management to its customers.
Users can import complete vessel inventory or manually select paper charts held onboard. Navi-Planner 4000 then connects directly to the Transas chart server ashore to gather all outstanding Notices to Mariners within a few seconds.
New Navi-Planner functionality provides a clear overview of paper charts status, and any paper chart used during a voyage will be automatically listed in the passage plan, thus making voyage planning easy and safe.
