With a big booth, strong team and a giant 84” touchscreen monitor, the stage was set for demonstrating NAVTOR’s products and services for the international maritime community at Nor-Shipping 2017.
The benefits of innovation and disruption
With Disruptive Sustainability as the main theme of the event, almost 1000 exhibitors and tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world found their way to Lillestrøm near Oslo in Norway. At NAVTOR’s booth the team had their hands full meeting customers, strategic partners and many other interested visitors who was eager to learn more about the firm.
“The maritime industry never stands still, and neither does NAVTOR,” comments NAVTOR CEO Tor Svanes. “Since the company was founded in 2011, disruptive technology have always been familiar territory for us, and the constant focus on innovation has resulted in a spectacular global growth. We started from nothing in 2011, and stand here today as a global leader in e-Navigation. This absolutely qualifies us as a disruptive company that has brought innovation with real benefits to the marketplace.”

With NavBox on board the vessels, seamless automated distribution and updating of navigational data will eliminate time-consuming administration duties such as checking for updates and ordering licenses.
Launching NavStation 4.0
Nor-Shipping 2017 was also the launch of NavStation 4.0. Using the latest e-Navigation technology, and working closely with several shipping companies and maritime industry players, the new NavStation 4.0 has been developed to unlock more of the vast potential of e-Navigation by increasing efficiency and make life easier for navigators.
“The launch of NavStation 4.0 shows our dedication to applying the latest technology to take our products and services to the next level,” Svanes explains. “With an enhanced user experience and more critical voyage information easily available at the fingertips of navigators, the potential reduction of time spent on administrative task will result in significant savings of man-hours per vessel, which again will add up to real time and cost efficiency for the shipping companies.”

With all critical voyage information easily available at the fingertips, and an intuitive and user-friendly interface, navigators can take full advantage of the ultimate maritime route planning tool.
