DNV GL announced the release of its new Navigator Port 2 software, an overhaul of DNV Navigator. According to DNV GL, the upgraded port clearance software aims to achieve a new level of usability, with a new and intuitive structure and interface.

Navigator Port 2, previously called DNV Navigator, has taken a leap forward in ease-of-use. The interface has been improved. It is now more intuitive and efficient, with a work-oriented process that is easier to understand and navigate within. This increased usability will not only save time in the actual port clearance process, but will also save resources in terms of training new users and implementation, DNV GL said.

“With today’s increasingly complex regulations, shipowners are realizing that they cannot continue with their old manual systems for port clearance,” said Tom Fiksdalstrand, Product Manager, Navigator Port, DNV GL. “In order to operate efficiently, they are relying on our innovative software solutions for the maritime industry.”

The new Navigator Port 2 is a consequence of last year’s merger of DNV and GL. “Coming together as DNV GL, we have become one of the biggest and most innovative maritime software providers in the world,” said Torsten Büssow, DNV GL  Director Maritime Software. DNV GL claims 300 customers and 4,000 vessels worldwide use its various maritime software tools.

Navigator Port is used on more than 2,500 vessels worldwide, DNV GL said, reporting customer feedback shows that Navigator reduces paperwork by up to 90%, simplifies and speeds up ship-to-shore reporting, ensures smoother port clearance, reduces delays and possible penalties in connection with port calls and leads to safer navigation.
