Connected ECDIS allows secure navigational date delivery, such as ENC, ADP & ENP and weather information to your ship, triggered by the route planning system. Not only is this much safer than downloading from a server and passing to the ECDIS via physical media, it is faster, transparent, managed by the route planning tool, and integrated within the ECDIS itself.
Another big advantage is that you no longer need to worry about charts, pricing and licenses. Within Fleet Operations Solutions the purchase processes of charts, logistics, approvals and budgets are eliminated. The use of charts is embedded within the service. This also includes weather services.
