Launching in 1 July 2019, ChartCo is expanding its OneOcean digital solution with its new fixed-price ‘Pay-As-You-Sail’ (PAYS) system, allowing budgetary certainty and global Electronic Navigation Chart (ENC) data for planning and navigation purposes. Vessels using the PAYS system will be tracked and only charged for ENC permits according to the routes they actually sail.

“Our focus at ChartCo has always been to simplify the working life of mariners, and our new offering – combined with the fully integrated OneOcean platform – take simplicity to a new level,” said Howard Stevens, ChartCo CCO. “Our continued focus is on streamlining the process of buying navigational and compliance data.”

The combination of ChartCo’s OneOcean fixed-price PAYS system with the innovative fixed-price Nautical Service (FPNS) means that all navigational and compliance requirements can be covered with a single invoice. PAYS also provides weekly updates exported to ECDIS via USB, DVD or network transfer. The solution is particularly useful for vessels that do not travel on fixed routes and are required to alter passages at any time as it eliminates the need to order new cells.
