NAVTOR’s revolutionary Passage Planning module has been nominated in leading industry title SMART4SEA’s annual awards scheme, competing with three other nominees for the coveted e-Navigation prize. The NavStation module, originally launched in 2017 and updated this year, has been recognized for its ability to greatly reduce vessel administration duties, while ensuring documentation compliance, safety and accuracy.
Easing the burden
You understand the burden of manual passage planning only too well.
Compiling endless vessel reports for countless authorities and taking up several hours of valuable time on the bridge. Much of the information that has to be collated is duplicated between reports, making the whole process even more frustrating for busy officers, agents and operators.
And that’s just on one ship – the burden, boredom and seeming waste of resources is multiplied fleet-wide.
NAVTOR, with its mission to make life easier, safer and more efficient for individuals, vessels and entire shipping organisations, decided to address the issue.
Something SMART4SEA has been quick to appreciate.
Time to make a difference
The new Passage Planning module allows the industry to wave goodbye to that mountain of manual administration. It works to log all necessary passage plan information, such as ENC cells, journey waypoints, UKC calculations, ETD, ETA, and so on, as a voyage is mapped out, capturing the data automatically for the necessary reporting.
The result, alongside the eradication of any human error, is a huge time saving. Passage planning utilising the module takes, on average, just 30 minutes.
Think about that across a fleet, across an organisation, across the world.
Feels good, doesn’t it?
