ECDIS as a Service
ChartWorld International has launched a new micro-site (http://www.ecdis-as-a-service.com) to mark the introduction of its unique “ECDIS as a Service™” concept for supplying ECDIS and digital chart data services to the SOLAS shipping market.
Eye catching and informative, the new micro-site not only provides visitors with information about ChartWorld’s overall eSeries “ECDIS as a Service™” concept and its specific service components, such as the eGlobe® type-approved ECDIS, but also the opportunity for shipping companies to submit their own information in order to receive a customised service quotation.
As Oliver Schwarz, ChartWorld International’s Business Development Director: “Shipping companies must implement ECDIS, which requires considerable planning and investment, as well as radical changes in operating procedures and training requirements. The current industry approach is to burden the shipping company customer with full responsibility for addressing all this myriad of problems themselves. Our approach is to take those problems away from the customer and present them with a clear and simple packaged service solution that is easy to understand, easy to implement and affordable.”
